What Our Clients Say

I’m refurbishing a 1964 VW Bug and wanted to carpet the interior myself. I didn’t know how I was going to get a “finished” edge where required until I discovered Instabind. It really allowed me to do a great job! I’ve been told that the carpet on the door panels looks custom made. It was… by me. Instabind is one fantastic product. There is a downside. My wife’s coming up with ideas for creating carpet pieces for the house.

I just completed binding a custom-sized area rug for my family room using your Instabind product. It took me a while to get it just right, but the end result looks fabulous. I love this product. I am interested in doing more of this as my house has hardwood floors throughout. Thank you for developing such an amazing product. I was able to use a large carpet remnant with very little waste to make a 10′ x 11.5′ rug. Now I need carpet runners for the hallways and another area rug for the breakfast nook. You will be hearing from me again.
P.S. Nobody believes that I did the carpet edging by myself. It looks that good!

I wanted to show you how well that marine Instabind worked for the boat mats we created. It worked great!
Have a great day!

I just used my first order of Instabind.It was extremely easy and the finished product looks amazing. I tend to rush through projects and they never look like they should. I am so proud of this one. I just ordered more. Everyone should know about this product!

I just wanted to let you know how pleased I am working with your product. As being the largest and only certified floor covering installation workroom in North Dakota, we are constantly called upon to do binding and serging. As you know that one of the key features of your product is that we can finish area rugs right on site . There is no need to bring it all the way back to the workroom and have the customer pick it up days later …With the universal types of binding edges we can offer many different finished products that no one else can and with simplicity of installation any one of my technicians can complete the binding to a very professional appearance and with complete customer satisfaction. In my 35 years in the installation industry I pride myself on our integrity and using only quality products, your product has far exceeded my expectations .
Q. I have a padded berber carpet that is approx. 1/2 inch thick. Would Instabind work with this application?
A. Yes it will cover the edge and you can also leave a little “space” between the edge of the carpet and the Instabind to “roll up” the edge a bit if you need more coverage. Also regular Instabind is about 5/16″ dia and serging and rope edges are about 3/8″ dia. Thanks for asking!
Q. I am putting a carpet remnant in the back of my minivan and want to finish the edges. However, I’m concerned about using hot glue as here in southern Arizona it often gets up to 120 to 140 degrees Fahrenheit in a closed car. Will hot glue hold up under this intense heat?
A. Good Morning and thank you for the inquiry. Our glue stix have a softening point about 170 degrees F and melt point about 190 degrees F. We haven’t had any problems to date with heat causing the edge to release.
Q. Can you use this product with a shag rug, or does it have to be a low pile rug?
A. You certainly can. It’s just that the shag pile will usually cover over the binding after it’s applied.
This company and their products are awesome, especially Scott! I had a problem with an Instabind product and man they were all over it. I decided to try Instabind cause it looked like a good product that is much cheaper than traditional binding. I truly believe that it was a combination of my novice ability with a glue gun, a partial understanding of how to apply the product and the product itself that lead to my failure. The carpet was out of the cockpit of a boat and after a through investigation by Scott into the issue he offered to have me send new carpet to them along with the old carpet (to use as a template) and he would use a newer improved version of Instabind on my carpet. Yes that’s right, not only did they replace the product but Scott “the man” did the binding himself. I received my carpet and it looked 10 times better than I thought. These people really stand behind their products as you can tell by how far they went to satisfy me. If I ever need to bind carpet again you can bet I will be using Instabind. Way to go Bond Products.

PS. Scott again thanks for all you did you guys are great. Thanks!
This message is to let you know how well the instabind rug binding works. I used it to bind a left over piece of my new Stain Master carpeting. It was so easy and looks so nice in my entry way.

Last August I introduced Instabind to over 40 installers on Long Island. In October a grateful installer came to me with an unusual use with instabind serge. In was installing laminate and the consumer wanted a free form. As a laminate reducer can not be used, he installed a serging edge. This gave the consumer an acceptable and an attractive finish between rooms.

I used your products to seam some outdoor turf a while ago and it help up great. I recently used it again for another turf field install using Bond’s 3” hi-temp turf tape and iron along with the seam sled with super results. I would recommend this product to anyone interested in speeding up & simplifying their turf seam installations. – John Landwehr of Delran Field April 2013

We recently purchased a binding machine and are super happy with the results and progress. Thank you! We are thinking about also getting into carving rugs. We may be interested in the MCE-1 master carver system with shop vac……do you have some sort of discount for previous customers or any specials coming up for carving equipment? And I have questions about if I would need anything else to perform carving other than what is above. Feel free to call me when you have a chance. Thanks again.
