Work over any surface! Use over wood sub floors, concrete subfloors, or open joist construction. Incredibly powerful. Join 3/4″ strip flooring, 2×10 decking, 4’x8′ plywood, 2×8 roofing. Offers hands free holding of material. Jack will hold position hands free ! Jack has 12″ of travel. Length of jack is 24″ fully retracted.

Working away from wall: Simply slide jack over desired length 2×4. No need to fasten jack or 2×4 in place. Turn side wind crank. Jack will self lock to 2×4 and squeeze flooring. To disengage from 2×4 just tap lock bracket with hammer.

Working near wall: Press directly off wall (or brace, if finished wall). Turn sidewind crank. Itªs that simple.

The best question we hear from customers installing flooring for the first time: “How do they do it without it” When we explain how its done without it (wedges, chisels, clamps, etc.), they are quite thrilled that we showed them a better way.

Many applications – not just a hardwood flooring tool! Be creative!
