OK - here ya go. I am selling all my repair tools - must all go together. Needs to be a pick up or meet near Orange county NY as there is too much to ship. Don't want to break them up and no low ballers - they still make me $. $1500 for the lot. It's everything you will need to repair - re-stretch and install carpets. Any questions - ask away!
Mini Jack, Tri-Force, Kool Glide with 1 full roll of tape (missing maybe 3 feet), standard iron with a few rolls of tape, Power stretcher with set of extensions, tool box full of goodies!

I never did new installs - but if I did I would always use a power stretcher - eff the whole knee kicker thing!

It's a Tri-Force. I don't do much repairs anymore - used to do a ton. Gettin too dam old!
The day after you get rid of them. You’ll get a call to stretch out a lr/dr. Few days later another will want hall stretched. And on and on.... lol



I would probably keep a few of them items you got there. Basic hand tools and your kool glide. Maybe not restretch anymore. But fixing cigarette burns and stains that just cant be removed patching and whatnot. Can still do pretty painlessly with surface iron. Crawling around with a stretcher i can understand. That beats your knees up even with pads on. Just alone carrying all the poles and head into the house is a pia. But small patch is easy money especially if done from surface.

I ordered a kneeless kicker the day before you posted this,,, was the tri force a pain to move around?
I really could never quite get the hang of the thing to be honest. Then again - I don't do a bunch of re-stretches.
