Tack strips are designed to grab hold of the edge of a carpet and hold it to the floor around the perimeter of the room. This means you don't have to tack the carpet directly to the floor, and it helps tuck the carpet under the wall edge. Always make sure to wear adequate eye protection when working with a miter saw. Pieces of wood or debris can fly out of the wood fence and into your eyes. Standard construction site safety glasses provide adequate protection for this type of work. Measure the perimeter of the room and deduct for the doorways. Tack strip is usually sold in 3-foot lengths.
