So many uses
24 Sep 2015
By
, Tiverton
" I've got half a dozen of these and am coming back for more because they are so useful. Propping, clamping, or anything else that needs force exerted on it from something opposite. For one-person boarding of a ceiling they are an extra set of hands. As you can use them at an angle they are much more useful than the pump versions which can only be used at 90 degrees to whatever you are supporting. You can screw through the base as well which is useful if you are working alone and they might fall over while you are positioning the board. It also means you can use them to lift up heavy timbers on your own if you can safely screw them into the base of the timber. (The usual safety warnings apply - use common sense!)
Note that occasionally the retaining end will fall out of them, and I almost lost one because I hadn't spotted it had fallen out. A bit of tape wrapped around the end, or a sharp tap with an old chisel to dent it will stop that. "

Great bit of kit
15 Sep 2015
By
, Blackpool
" I bought these to help plasterboard a ceiling. Absolutely fantastic, easy to use one handed due to the extending swivel legs. The drop down ratchet mechanism works great with small incremental notches. The quality and sturdiness was a real surprise.
Don’t bother getting the old pump type props, these are the "dogs nuts" and I’m sure will last for many tough jobs.
If you are looking for a great bit of kit, look no further.

" Best tool I've bought this year so far. When I think back how awkward overboarding a ceiling is on your own, these make the job so easy. Plus you don't have to hire some kid (and listen to him drone on about a girl or the latest video game) to give you a hand for the day. "

Really useful, strong for size
23 Apr 2015
By
, Bristol
" I bought a set of these as a helping hand while erecting a heavy pre-assembled staircase and they were extremely useful as temporary props, alot faster and simpler to use than using pieces of timber.
I am quite surprised how strong and robust these seem for lightweight props, and they have a large range of height adjustment and feet that are broad and have angle adjustment if you aren't propping vertically. I can tell these are going to come in useful for many jobs.

Excellent tool
6 Nov 2014
By
, Carshalton
" To put it simply, these props are absolutely essential if you want to plasterboard ceilings safely on your own.
I was pleasantly surprised with the robust build quality at this price. They are very easy to use, and have an excellent feature of having screw holes at both ends so you can secure them to the floor when boarding a pitched ceiling, and you can put wooden battens at the top to secure large boards. Just a shame I don't have more ceilings to board! "
