Much cheaper than a helper

Review Summary

These support poles are a time , money and back saver when it comes to installing cabinets and I've used them for a good many years now. They are infinitely adjustable between 57-144 inches. They are easy to adjust and lock in securely. They've never failed on me to date. These save my back or a helpers back from having to hold a cabinet on the wall cleat for mounting, plus you can do it yourself thus not needing a helper,providing you can lift the cabinet to the cleat yourself.
Every cabinet maker should have at least a couple of these. Much safer and easier than using a 2X4 for sure. They are also a No. of optional add on helps that can be purchased separately. I included pictures of only two above. A crown mold holding attachment and a platform to mount a leveling lazer light. My past experience with their customer service lends me to not be hesitant to purchase any FastCap product. See my review of the T-jak support system as reviewed on this site, as a comparative review of this competitors similar product. I choose these over the T-jak for their cost (almost half the cost) and versatility.

More than just a cabinet jack

Review Summary

The 3rd Hand Syatem just keeps getting better. Now FastCap offers a roller top and tripod for the medium sized 3rd hand to turn it into a freestanding roller stand. You can also use the tripod to make a freestanding laser stand, or you can use a large 3rd Hand and go floor to ceiling to mount your laser. I always want to section off a room or section of a room and use the 3rd Hand to hold plastic sheeting up to make the barrier. I also use a 3rd Hand as a support bar in my truck bed.
