How to get carpet back onto tack strips?

12 years ago

I've got a couple of sections of carpet that got pulled off the tack strips when doing some other repairs around the house. Its right where the carpet meets the laminate. Each section is about four feet. The tack strips are good and undamaged. Is it as simple as getting a knee kicker to stretch it back onto the tack strips so they bite into the carpet and then tuck it into the edge or is there more to it than that? The part that came up is an 'L' shape. I'm guessing I'd want to start from the inside and work my way toward the walls to get all the wrinkles out?
