The sharp, high-carbon steel point penetrates the carpet's backing for fast removal from the tack strip. It can also be used for light carpet stretching in tight areas, such as around toilets. Press the point into the tack strip and lift to stretch the carpet. The point has an opposite flat end seated in the top of the hard plastic handle for hammering when necessary. Handle is rounded to fit the palm comfortably. Net weight: 3 oz.
