How to lock tight if both ends have an angle cut?

There is a part of my living room which is shaped like a triangle (like below):

.. /. \
. / ... \
./ ..... \________
| .......................|
| ...................... |
| ...................... |
--------------------

So when I reached that part, both ends of the laminate floor will have an angled cut. I cannot lock tight the floor using the tapping block because the force is not perpendicular to the floor. So is there any trick to it?

Thanks.

Welcome to the forums!! Lock the edges first and tap in the main run into the one before. You "can" use a scrap piece of the flooring cut at the angle of attack you need and flat cut the other end, then use your tap block if you have to come from the ends. Just lock it in with your floor, tap, then remove the scrap. Not sure how big this triangle is, but you can assemble the entire run end to end, then snap it all in at once, provided you grow 3 more arms or engage the help of others.

if i am understanding correctly. a 90deg pry bar, with a block of wood against the wall. everything placed correctly = lifting up on the pry bar would move the end piece towards you to tighten it.
