PITTSBURGH… Despite the focus on injury prevention in the workplace, carpet layers still suffer knee injuries when using the tool their job calls for exactly as intended. That’s precisely why two inventors from Dallas, Texas, decided that tool needed improvement.

They developed HYDRAULIC KNEE KICKER to prevent knee injuries for those who lay carpeting. Thus it eliminates the need to use the conventional knee kicker commonly used for carpet installations since users often incur knee damage. It, therefore, improves productivity and reduces downtime for carpeting installers. What’s more, it is convenient, effective and affordably priced. It saves time and effort as well. This labor saving tool is also durable, practical and easy to operate. In addition, its simple design minimizes production costs.

The inventors’ personal concerns inspired the idea. “After several people we know well suffered from knee injuries as a result of their experience laying carpeting, we decided to try to prevent that from happening to others in that line of work,” one of them said.

The original design was submitted to the Dallas office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
