    I note that the thickness of all gripper rods seems to be 6.3mm plywood with either long pins or medium pins.

    What I was wondering is why the thickness of the gripper rods is not more considering that the underlays seem to range from 8mm to 12mm ?

    I have this picture in my head that the carpet will be pulled down on to the gripper rods and that it might be visible around the perimeter of the room especially if a thicker ( say 11mm or 12mm ) underlay is used ?
