Always ensure that the pile on a stair carpet faces down the stairs on a winding stair (or winder). Secure the carpet on the winder with tacks, or. If the carpet is not too bulky, fit tackless fitting strips. If using the latter and working upwards, first secure a strip on the tread below the first winder in the normal way. Pull the carpet up over the tread of the winder and position the pile. Fold the resulting surplus up against the riser and. Holding the fold in position, pull the carpet away from the winder sufficiently to position a strip against the fold at the foot of the riser. Keeping the carpet taut on the tread below tack the strip and the folded double thickness of carpet to the riser. Pull the carpet back on to the tread of the winder, and continue the operation.
