The spiked wheels are too close to the plastic part, and even when applying no pressure, they get stuck on the plastic and do not roll at all.
I cannot see any way to reassemble them to work, so I am returning immediately.
I'm very disappointed!
One bit of advice. When it says you don't need to apply any pressure to the tool, make sure you don't. Let it glide against the wallpaper. I pressed a little too hard on the surface and you could see the marks. I had to go over the area with Spackle but I was able to finish the rest of the wallpapered area with very little pressure on the knob.
As an experiment, I also applied the adhesive remover to a 4'x4' square without scoring and it took about 3x as long to let the solution sit before I was able to remove the wallpaper. The scoring tool made it so much easier and only had to let the mixture sit for about 15-20 minutes.
They make a single head version, but if you're doing a room that is more than 12 feet in any direction, the triple head will make it much faster.
Of course, if the wall needs repair, has been damaged by water or ?, this is the right time to do those repairs. Because this surface is down to either plaster or drywall, primer is essential (if painted wall is your destination). I'm aware that some paint now includes primer but I have no experience with it. If stains exist on your walls, use stainblock of some sort( various brands exist)
Finish your walls & be happy that you did it with your trusty paper tiger! My daughter bought her 1st home that had 3 layers of very old wallpaper to dismiss- use of Zinsser triple head paper tiger is now part of family lore with lots of fun (& tired times) but wonderful stories of teamwork & achievement. The entire house was soon done - every room painted in this very old house that became charming-fast becoming her fine home. Using TRIPLE HEAD PAPER TIGER by Zinsser is key to that success.

Don't bother......as usual the only thing that will work for a tough job is hard work. This tool is a waste of money. Use some elbow grease to get the job done.Published 5 months ago by J. Ellsworth
