" when you lay laminate flooring this is must because it stops the floor from moving due the expansion gap,
very important in busy areas e.g. passage
this is flexible and easy to cut and fit to size "

Pros: cheap and looks good
Cons: needs care trimming floor edges
" I always use these strips as expansion joint in doorways with laminate flooring. Neat, smooth finish, can be cut and trimmed round complex door frame profiles, looks tidy and gives no problems. Hold small pieces in place with a spot of UHU or similar. "

Pros: stay in place so nothing moved
Cons: more expensive than plastic temporary ones
" I have laid a few laminate and real wood floors, and had traditionally used the red plastic wedges to mark out the expansion gap. These then need to be removed and the floor fixed can move back out of the place.
Handy little cork strips are much easier and overall probably cheaper. The plan with the wedges is always to keep them for next time - in reality they are lost so are equally disposable.
Just be careful when using the strips to allow for them to sink below the flloor level - obvious afterwards but I got 3 stuck and had to force them down. "
