Carpet is traditionally installed with the use of tack strips, which are typically used around the perimeter of a room to help to secure the carpet in place. The process of laying tack strips involves a decent amount of measuring, cutting the strips and then nailing them into place, all of which can be tedious and time-consuming tasks.

An inventor from Murfreesboro, Tenn., has invented EZ STRIP, a device designed for the installation of carpeting that eliminates the need to nail down wood tack strips. "I felt compelled to make a tack strip that would simplify the process of installing a carpet," said the inventor. "I believe my design would make an installation quicker and easier."

EZ STRIP, like conventional tack strips, ensures easy carpet installation and that the carpet remains uniformly in place and without bulges. However, it differs in that it eliminates the need to cut the tack strips to size, saving time and energy. Additionally, it eliminates mold or rot that may be found through the use of wood tack strips.

This invention reduces the amount of time needed to place and secure the strips and increases the lifespan of the carpet placement as it does not deteriorate over time. It is durable and easy to use and would appeal to contractors, home builders and DIY enthusiasts alike.

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