You guys aren't going to believe this.  My inventory checker showed this item in stock at a Lowe's near me for only $5 - normally its $89.  So I go to the store, and its not on the shelf, there wasn't even a tag for it.  So I get down on my hands and knees, and start throwing stuff everywhere.  I finally found it on the bottom shelf in the back covered in dust.  And yes, it rang up $5   It was still in the shrinkwrap, nothing wrong with it.  This is the same store I got that electric panel for $8, when the shelf tag said $89.

This item has been discontinued and is already being replaced by a very simliar item that just has a shiny new box.

Love the narrative. Great post.

Ok you made me run down to one of my local Lowes to find this.  Trouble is instead of having one they had two and even worse I had to pay twice as much as you.  Come to think of it I had to pay 4 times as much because as a true fatwaller I had to buy both

you can resell this for $50 online as long as the box isnt open.  if you keep it you'll save a lot installing carpeting yourself.  Usually I think installation is $1/sq for carpeting.

The carpet in my family room has detached from the spikes that hold it in place where the carpet meet hardwood floor. The carpet doesn't seem loose or anything, but pulls up easily at that threshold. Can I use this to get it back on those spikes? Since the spikes stick straight up, I assume tension holds the carpet onto them?

If your spikes are sticking straight up, that might be your problem.  Normally the are angled in slightly.  Its possible the backing on the carpet can no longer hold the carpet in place over the tack strip.

You are correct in your understanding however.  The carpet is stretched up over the spikes and the backward tension holds the carpet in place.  At knee kicker is generally used to stretch carpet in smaller or hard to get places.  A power stretcher is generally used in larger areas.

I was at a different Lowes tonight, so I thought I would go on a treasure hunt. I went to the carpeting area, and started digging. After finding some stuff 90% off that I didnt want, i found one of these knee kickers. There was no tag on the shelf. So i had a Lowes employee look up the price, and he said $29 lol. I was like wtf. I tried to haggle to $5 but he wouldnt budge. So back to the back of the dusty shelf it went, for my grand kids to one day find.

I left disappointed but not empty handed. I found another item for $2 that is normally $30. It was on the shelf with no tag. I know previously running an inventory check that it was there, but otherwise I would have no clue it was $2.

everytime I go to Lowes its a treasure hunt lol. If you arent afraid to get dirty you can find stuff 90% off with no tag.
