    "As long as the existing grippers are still in good condition you wouldn't have to change them."

    "No as long as the gripper are still spikey. It’ll do the same job as it did before you replaced the old carpet."

    "Not always. As long as pins are Sharpe. In standing upright then it's OK to use again."
