HOW DO LAMINATE FLOOR PANELS LOCK TOGETHER?
There are many types of edge joining systems used to connect laminate flooring panels together. Some laminate floor connections snap together by hand while others require a light tap with a mallet and a tapping block. Still others use a combination of a "snap" click edge and a "bang" or "tap" click at the end of the panels.
While most of the various systems work well to secure your laminate floor, it is important to read your laminate flooring installation instructions carefully. Familiarize yourself with how your flooring locks together before starting your installation and practice on a few pieces.
