1.The three parts to this Floor Installation Kit are used to help install wood plank flooring and have it come out as straight and even as possible.
2. The metal Pry Bar (1), Tapping Block (2) and Spacers (3) are used to maintain even spacing from walls or other obstacles.
3. Snap a line on the sub-floor about 1/2” from a wall and lay down your first row of wood planks, or strips. From here on these three tools will be a great assistance in your job.
Note:This 1/2” gap allows for expansion.
4. As you lay subsequent strips, use the Pry Bar (1) to gently force the boards together and the Spacers (3) to maintain even spacing. Use a spacer (3) every 18”.
5. Use the Tapping Block (2) to gently interlock each new row of wood planking or strip of wood by sliding and tapping along the entire length of the new wood flooring.
6. Keeping all rows snug and spaced evenly will make the job look professional
