So the Hollywood just has an extra attachment point?
There are a lot of complaints on the web about HD and Lowes installations. I realize they also do a lot of jobs, but I am seeing a pattern with respect to adding numerous charges after the estimate. Other than the stairs I've ripped out all the carpet and will have the furniture moved, but who knows what other charges they may try to rack up. They have $137 in what appear to be stair carpeting charges, but then say the stairs are unmeasured and should be billed separately. May be back square one looking for carpet....
