Drop and Lock is the second of the two main types of click together installation methods for laminate flooring. In this video, Brian shows exactly how the planks lock together, and how to avoid the two most common mistakes people make when putting in their floors.

Take a look at a drawing of the expansion gap covered by a trim piece here:

Adam (who does not really dance in the video) goes over some issues a customer asked about, showing us great details on how to start the first rows, handling previous planks unlocking as you proceed, leaving your active row not fully engaged, and more. As good to see before you start as it is after you’re frustrated.

Not every locking system is the same. Each has its own specifics, so look at this video for tips but check your own instructions to see if all of them apply to your particular floor.

Using a Tapping Block:

(go to about 2:25 to see how to use a piece of your floor instead of the tapping block)

JUNE 2015
SECOND VISIT TO PERTH!
Although it was a short vacation of only 4 nights there,
i honestly thought the highlights of my trip were visits to Caversham Wildlife Park as well as the Fremantle Prison.

Due to poor lighting and a few other reasons, I only filmed certain parts of the prison, however it was definitely an eye-opener, and a rather interesting experience as well.

Caversham Wildlife Park was the best.
I can’t believe i finally got the opportunity to interact with the kangaroos! Previously in my trip to WA, i was only able to admire the wild kangaroos from a distance (as shown in the video i previously filmed when i was in Walpole, WA) while we were in the jeep.
I didn’t know kangaroos can be such lazy animals!
They so absolutely love sleeping. Not to mention, extremely lovable and gentle at the same time.

PREVIOUS WESTERN AUSTRALIA VIDEO:

It’s not much of a video but i hope you enjoyed watching it!
Thanks for watching! God bless! :-)

P.S I do this for my own entertainment sake and i am definitely not a videographer or some sort. Neverthless, please excuse my poor skills

Music used in video:

Tokyo Vacation Travel Guide | Expedia

Tokyo Vacation Travel Guide | Expedia

Welcome to Tokyo, the capital of Japan and the epitome of the word “megacity.”

In this vast metropolis, ancient traditions blend with futuristic buildings, and your Tokyo sightseeing will take you to representations of each. Pay your respects at temples set in forested hillsides, then flex your credit card in one of the shopping districts, before sitting down to a five-star meal…all in one day.

Your Tokyo tour begins with the subway and train system, which will take you all over this sprawling city. Tokyo is home to some 35 million people, many of which you’ll meet as its public transit carries you throughout its many neighborhoods. Make a stop in Asakusa, a temple district nestled in leafy trees with skyscrapers towering in the background. There you’ll visit Nakamisi Dori, a street loaded with food vendors and religious charms. Get to know the city a little better in the Harajuku district, home to cutting-edge fashion, a thriving, youth-centered culture, and the famous Yoyogi Park. The park stands out in stern contrast to the rest of the neighborhood; this sprawling, 134-acre green space is where locals slow down after a frenzied week of work and play.

As night falls, make your way to Shinjuku. Many of Tokyo’s premier restaurants and pubs span Shinjuku’s streets, and you can indulge in succulent 5-star meals or sample with fast food from local vendors. Watch a movie, do some karaoke, and linger with fellow travelers and friendly locals alike.

What was your favorite part of Tokyo?
