carpeting stairs


Anyone have a good websites with video on how to carpet wood stairs? There are 6 steps going to my now finished basement- I would think I can do this myself (I'm fairly handy)- I've read some use tack strips/some don't- what is easiest way? I'm guessing I would need to rent a knee kicker- thanks

Almost everthing shown on that particular youtube video is wrong. The woodworkingtalk link doesn't lead to stairs. And the link back to this forum leads to almost 400 pages and I don't think that is the thread where I gave advice on carpeting a very custom set of stairs.

OKey dokey then, the last two links are my signature. The youtube link about carpet I figured looked pretty good to me but then, I am a nail whooper not a carpet man. I don't know where the thread is that you posted so I will let you post that.
