No. 563 Tapping Block

This plastic block for tapping and moving planks transmits force from a hammer or mallet in a manner that protects the edges of the plank. The block is sized at 3" wide x 7" long x 3/4" thick. The bottom surface has relieved edges on one side and one end. When the block is placed on a plank at its relieved edge, it can tap the plank against its outer edge to reduce the risk of chipping the corner. The large plastic handle mounted on top makes it easy to move and position the block. Net weight: 9 oz.

No. 560 Knuckle Head Pull Bar

This steel pull bar is designed to take heavy hammering when necessary to pull planks together. It has a boxed "knuckle-shaped" hammering head that is welded to the body. The 3/16" thick body is made 3" wide to reduce bending down the length as it is hammered. The tool is 16 1/2" long overall to create 14 1/2" of working room when used near the wall. Felt pads on its bottom surface reduce scratching the face of the plank. Net weight: 3 1/4 lbs.

No. 564

No. 564 Variable Wall Spacer

This variable wall spacer is used to space planks from the wall to form the expansion gap necessary with plank floor installations. It provides variable spacing when the wall adjacent to the planks is not straight. It operates with a large threaded pushrod that's attached to an ergonomic twist knob. Additionally, the twist knob has a steel hex insert for use with a hex wrench for extra force. With the extra leverage, the tool can be used for pressing together the butt joints of end planks. The pressure pad has a rubber insert to prevent scratching of walls. Hex wrench not included. Net weight: 8 oz.

No. 562

No. 562 Plastic Spacers (10)

These plastic wall spacers maintain the necessary expansion gap between the adjacent wall and the plank flooring material even when the wall is undercut, as is commonly the case. Their V-shape permits one end to be placed in the gap and the opposite end to be braced against the face of the plank, eliminating the tipping problems with other spacers. The two ends have different thicknesses, one at 3/16" and the other at 1/4", for various manufacturer's specifications. Comes in a pack of 10 spacers. Net weight: 5 oz.

No. 546

No. 546 Wood Roto-Wedge Spacers™

These plastic spacers have a unique "spiral-wedge" shape which can be rotated to create a variable gap from 1/16" to 7/8". They are thick enough to create the necessary expansion gap for hardwood floor installations, and are adjustable on the fly to accommodate walls that are not straight. They are also helpful in spacing masonry and stone on wall installations where variable support is needed. Inexpensive and reusable. Sold twelve spacers per pack. Pack weight: 2 oz.

No. 670

No. 670 Hardwood Plank Jack

This jack has a threaded pushrod that produces all the power of dog-and-ratchet jacks, but without the backlash or dog breakage problems. With every turn of the ratcheting handle, this jack pushes then holds and does not give. It adjusts between the wall and the last plank quickly by pushing down on the oversized handle. Push plate is reversible for when sheetrock does not go all the way to the floor or for working very close to the wall. Fastens down for use in the middle of the room using holes in the base. Provides up to 2000 lbs. of pushing force to move planks as necessary. Net weight: 8.7 lbs.

No. 557

No. 557 Hardwood Pry Bar

This specialized bar for wedging bowed planks into position has a curve-shaped end with a sharp point. Place the curve-shaped end against a bowed board and hammer on the opposite end. As the sharp point on the curve-shaped end is driven downwards into the subfloor, a wedging action is created that forces the bowed board into place, eliminating the joint gap. The sharp point penetrates wood subfloors cleanly. The long eleven inch handle provides good leverage when necessary. Net weight: .90 lb.

No. 554

No. 554 Hinge Board Pusher

This fast-acting hinge lever provides enough force to push wider bowed boards together to close joint gaps. It can also be used to push butt joints together from an end plank. Hammer the sharp pins into a wooden subfloor, and place the opposite groove-shaped end against the tongue of the board to be pushed. Using foot pressure, press down on the pedal to push the board and hold it in place for nailing. Both hands are free to work with the nailer. The tool folds conveniently to store in the back pocket. Net weight: 1 5/8 lbs.

No. 559

No. 559 Close to Wall Staple Tool

This close to wall stapling tool can manually staple ¾" solid hardwood planks generally within one board width of the wall. It reduces the need for gluing the planks close to the wall, or top nailing and puttying work. The padded base rests safely on top of the planks, and the back foot rests on the subfloor, so that the tongue is protected from impact. Insert a staple in the channel and hammer it using the unique offset driver. Works with 16 gauge (½" crown) solid hardwood plank staples for ¾” thick solid hardwood planks. The front of the tool includes a staple separator for separating individual staples from the brick. Net weight: 1 ¾ lbs.

No. 553 Engineered Wood Stapling Tool

This adjustable stapling tool works close to walls and adjusts to a wide variety of engineered plank thicknesses. It staples close to the wall to reduce gluing or top nailing and puttying work. Generally works to within the width of one board from the wall. Adjusts to different plank thicknesses from 3/8" to 3/4" in two easy steps. Place the tool's back foot on the subfloor and the stapling nose on the tongue. Drop the adjustable front foot plate onto the top surface of the plank and tighten. Insert a staple in the channel and hammer it into the subfloor using the unique offset driver. Takes 18 gauge (1/4" crown) staples. The tool includes a staple separator for separating individual staples. Net weight 2 lbs.

No. 558

No. 558 Staple Set Tool

This hand held stapling tool manually drives staples and L-shaped cleats made for ¾" solid hardwood planks. It can finish off staples and L-shaped cleats after misfires of the nailer. It can manually drive staples and L-shaped cleats in tight areas where nailers don't fit, and is a fast solution for repair work without the need for a compressor. After hammering, it sets the fastener flush with the side of the plank. All steel body and driver with a tough polyurethane tip. Works with 16 gauge (½" crown) solid hardwood plank staples and 16 gauge L-shaped cleats for ¾” thick solid hardwood planks. Net weight: 1 ½ lbs.
