Original Press Release:

Gripper Edge Carpet Tack Strip Launches Patented Breakthrough Self-Stick(TM) Tackless

DELRAY BEACH, Fla. -- Gripper Edge®, a leading manufacturer of carpet tack strip in North America, today announced the product launch of their patented self-stick™ method of installing carpet tack strip. Previously, most carpet tack strips were either nailed or glued down using hot melt or solvent based adhesives. These methods can damage a subfloor such as prefinished hardwood, which the homeowner may want to return to in the future. The solvent based adhesives require long wait times, in some cases up to 24 hours before completing the installation.

The new GRIPPER EDGE® SELF-STICK™ installs four times faster than even the fastest glue gun and will not damage an existing floor. There is no waiting, power required, or special tools needed to install self-stick™ tack strip, made by GRIPPER EDGE®, which has sold over a half billion lineal feet of product in the United States since 2003.

GRIPPER EDGE® SELF-STICK™ was invented and patented by three experienced flooring professionals, principals of GMB Flooring Solutions, LLC (US patent # 8,763,203 B2). "There has never been an easier method of installing carpet," says inventor and veteran carpet installer Mr. Brian McKenna. "We literally cut our install time by several hours per room using the easy peel and stick method."

GRIPPER EDGE® is a brand owned by TruBlack, a company that prides itself in offering innovative products that are sourced from sustainable sources and are environmentally safe.

We offer our lifetime warranty on this an all our GRIPPER EDGE® products."
