The Atlas Lam-Hammer installation kit is a professional tool kit that makes the installation of interlocking floors quick and easy. It virtually eliminates damage to walls and cabinets, reaching easily under toe-kicks and other low spaces when installing the last board in a row. It applies its full force horizontally to the board to be moved, unlike the pull bar, which requires using a hammer at a downward angle. This downward blow can cause damage to the board, leaving a dent in it. The Atlas Lam-Hammer was designed for engineered wood and hardwoods. The planks are wider, longer and thicker than laminates, thereby requiring more weight to overcome the additional friction when tightening the pieces. The Atlas has a 3-lb slide to do the job. It can be used on laminates as well, but with caution so as not to break the interlocking device. Includes 20 spacers are used to prevent the boards from being installed tight to the wall thereby allowing for expansion caused by temperature changes, they are removed when the installation is complete. Includes tapping block, used in the field where tightening of a gap is needed. Plus a 9-inch extension - used in extra-low places, such as under a dishwasher, radiator or electric baseboard heater.
