    Shortening carpet strips? 18th Mar 17 at 4:30 PM
    My flat has no ends between rooms so the carpet is starting to get a little frayed at edges, I purchased some carpet strips that fit thickness wise but just a small amount too long, outside of sawing bits off which I assume I need a good saw anyway is there any other basic method?

    If they are metal trim to length with a hacksaw with a fine blade or a junior hacksaw, if wood use a wood saw.
    I used to have a handle on life, but it broke.
