Description:
Carpet stretcher comprised of a bar with hooks and loop wires, an anchor bar with successive stops for leverage, and a lever handle with a hook for the loop wires and a spur for the fulcrum.

The lever handle was produced in malleable iron with a tack hammer head and tack claw at the end. The set was sold as the EXCELSIOR CARPET STRETCHER and TACK HAMMER COMBINED. Most of these malleable iron tack hammers have separated from the other components. A complete set in the original box was written up by Tim Bonelli in the Dec. 2009 M.W.T.C.A. GRISTMILL (pg. 11).
