    To be fair if I saw someone fit a domestic stair runner on underlay and gripper without crimping I would be mortified :eek:
    This is a noble I did a while back .

    I have NEVER in 36 years fitting ever seen a carpet turned on the edge of straight stairs, unless it was an open-sided staircase.

    Crimped as in , just dipped down , flared under slightly , not a full turn , maybe you call it a different name , I've heard people say twiddle , fiddle , crimp , fettle , dip that edge , basically the same as fitting to a gripper on a straight wall .

    Oh ok, I cut nett on stairs, never had any issues, the stairs I've seen with issues have been where the carpet has been cut slightly too large and puckered on the tread.

    probably would get a better finish if you finished grippering too in the landing and half landing
