"Bought two of these to help me put up a heavy plaster ceiling rose after the screwing technique failed. They worked a treat and the kids were grateful as they were not happy balanced on the platform holding it up while I searched for the screw holes. (They are big kids but still not happy).
I can see lots more use for them in the future as I renovate my house."
"I have to wonder how I achieved the work I do without this bit of kit, easy single hand cramping operation which has got to be one of the best things I have purchased this year. They are simply that extra pair of hands that you have always needed, superb!."
"Used this to support 3 x 2 x 8ft long wood timbers whilst fixing to the ceiling as i was carrying out the work on my own . great piece of kit easy to use . Would recommend these max weight capacity is 40kg at 90 degrees(perpendicular to the floor)"
"Bought 4 of these to hold PVC tongue and groove panels to some ceilings while the glue sets off, they are easy to use, quick to adjust and light and come ready assembled, which I wasn't expecting. Perfect for light duty applications."
"I refurbished my whole house by myself, and there has been so many jobs where I couldn't be without these helpers...drylining, electricals, plumbing, ceilings...Would recommend to everyone if doing alot on your own..."
"These are such a handy tool. I have fitted so many ceilings over the years with the help of a labourer holding up the boards with me however these do not moan or get arm aches!
Once you get the knack of these you could put up a ceiling on you own using the smaller boards. I still recommend a two man team for the full size boards but these make the job much quicker and easier. They are well made and good for the job."
"A pair of hands, great for supporting the lighter weight stuff like rafters when installing a velux type window, or ceiling joists when fitting a loft hatch and so on. Good for plasterboard, propping heads under lintols and so on. Light and easy to use, down side is the location sprigs brake easily if overloaded (that will be mis use)but can be rotated so all is not lost. Also the rubber bung at the foot tends to fall out easily, so if you find a black rubber thing in the van or on the job, it probably belongs to the prop. So much lighter than acrows for jobs which dont need acrows but need adjustable support."
