Kahrs woodloc through door jamb into hall

I don't understand how you install Kahrs woodloc from a room into an adjoining hallway with multiple door jambs on both sides of the hall. If the boards are running parallel to the door jamb and the hall, where do you start the installation? If you start on the wall opposite the door jamb, how do you slide the last board in the room under the jamb and extend it into the hallway? The last board in the room has to be ripped. I have looked at the Kahrs documentation and video, but this is not explained at all.

It's frustrating and this will really try your patience. You have to plan way ahead for going under doors.

The last two rows have to be "dry-fit" and installed together. You will have to use a sharp chisel and trim the locking lip off the tongue of the boards so they will tap in "flat". These joints will have to be glued using a yellow wood glue like Titebond II.

You are going to waste a few boards until you get the hang of it.
To make it easier you could remove the door casings and then reinstall them. You will then just have an "L" cut for the door jambs which is less intricate to deal with.

Good luck .
