Carpet Trim

Now this I just recently learned about quite by accident by doing some research based on somebody submitting it as a search term used that brought them to this blog about carpets. I personally had never heard of or even knew about trim for carpets. Lo and behold, sure enough there is trim for carpets used primarily in bass boat rigs from what I can find. Since I’m currently restoring a 1993 Nitro 170 TF I’m pondering whether or not to use this trim.

I’ve found that it comes in two different types. One style is a butt style where basically the carpet butts up against it. The other style is called a tuck style where the carpet is tucked within the trim. What both styles of trim does is give your carpet a nice clean look. Do not confuse this type of trim for trim that goes around the edges of lid boxes or consoles which is quite different. Here’s a link to the trim for carpet http://www.marinecarpeting.com/boat-carpet/carpet/carpet-installation-supplies.html¬†and here’s what it looks like. Butt styles first followed by tuck style.
