What I used to do to the boys when I was a little girl - I always missed their shins and get them in the knees - I was a real "Knee Kicker"

Some use these for stretching carpet, most knee kickers that I know are little urchins trying to get my attention while I am trying to talk.

It's a carpet stretcher. I used one years ago when we did our own carpet installation.

Installers wear them.  They use their knee to kick and staple down carpet.

Do not know this one. Knee wall is it which is a 1/2 wall dividing a room or a 1/2 wall instead of a banister.

The only thing i can think of is when installing carpet they use a Knee Kicker to stretch the carpet in home construction or when reinstalling carpet.

Are you referring to the carpet installer? It is something used to stretch carpet. Once learned to use properly, it will usually lay easily and save you a lot of time.

Knee Kicker

A carpet installation tool used to make minor adjustments by stretching carpet (for installation with a tackless strip). By industry standards, the majority of this stretch must be performed using a power stretcher.
