How To/ DIY Remove Carpet Tack Strip

CarpetTackStrip2

Old tools can be recycled for a new use with just a little modification.
Today’s example: a pry bar too badly damaged for everyday use works perfectly
to remove carpet tack strips. Since there seem to be few how-to videos on the
efficient removal of carpet tack strips I thought this solution would work
on those occasions the tack strips must go in order to refurbish the floor.
As always, this is not a tutorial, but a demonstration for educational purposes.
If you are inexperienced with this kind of work consult a local carpet
technician before you try this yourself.

      Many thanks James Mason! To remove tack strips is a rare request for me so I was surprised at the lack of equipment and information on the internet. This technique seems to be a good solution as it leaves the floor undamaged for a thorough resurface job.
