It’s always nice to have a extra “set of hands”. This sure helps the cause and reasonable too!
Pretty Great if your by yourself. They do what they were made for but if you got a helper it's still easier with an extra hand.
Why didn't I think of this...these are great. plastic but works well. I'm putting plywood (3/8") on the ceiling and these are great, I 'm working alone so I put one side up and then put my T bar in the middle. Then take my time driving screws. It would be nice if you had the option of Aluminum but so far I love it !.
A really simple tool that provides just enough assistance. Sure, you can make your own, or come up with some other way. The tool made the job just a bit easier, which was what I was hoping. I am glad I bought these and will keep them for future drywall jobs.
If you hang drywall and don't have these yet you need to get them. I had a small job i used these. I had to hang 1 1/2 sheets of 4x8x1/2. These made it a snap. I flew solo and they made it so easy. I had a full sheet up on the ceiling in just a few minutes and lined up perfect. No cussing, I swear. I'm keeping these in my bags from now on.
I thought these would be over kill but it turned out they were extremely handy working alone and with a partner.
I would highly recommending purchasing a pair of these supports if you are planning to hang drywall solo. I finished about 800 square feet of ceiling, at 8 feet height, with the help of these supports. I was very skeptical at first but ended buying them based on other favorable reviews. There was a slight learning curve, so try to use these on half sheets before going to full 4x8 sheets.
Yeah you can make something like this with a piece of 1x4. But as it goes these things work perfectly if you are trying to install a large sheet of drywall to the ceiling by yourself. There is a guide that keeps the device from spinning. The guide also spaces the beveled edge the correct distance to slide the sheet rock. I had the far one installed as suggested. The near one I installed then backed out the screw and rotated it out of the way. After I got the sheet rock into position, I grabbed my screw gun and tighten the near support to completley support the drywall. Very nice.
