    I use a small bolster, and don't use a speedcat as I haven't got one.

    I use the speedcat,good for creasing onto the gripper,if the carpets soft it tucks them well,i.e sensations and new oaklands,but when theyre stiff and full of latex i dont bother and use a plastic bolster.

    Update on the speedcat,to use it to its best effect you need to stretch and crease all walls on,then it tucks them nicely but being metal wheels it marks the skirtings if youre not careful.

    Tried putting some hobbycraft felt on on the wheels but that lasted a day lol
