Laminate floor not locking HELP!
Make sure you inspect the row that precedes the row that isn't locking....it sounds like one of the boards in the last row completed may have shifted so when you attach the other row it is teeter tottering some where and causing the other side to jump off..I found that when I am having a tough row...I'll start somewhere in the center and work to each end rather than starting at the end...just make sure you lay the first full board so that the end cuts are staggered. you may have tio carefully look at the last few rows to make sure something hasn't shifted. another trick is to start placing full boxes on the installed area to add weight to it to help it from sliding around.... inspect all the short seems to see if any boards are uneven like this
all it takes is 1/16" inch stagger to give you problems...make sure there isn't debris or damaged tongue from pounding...inspect the full groove...Lock down 1 board at a time on the new row
A hundred yards a day (residential), keeps the bill collectors away....
