An New Innovative Tool For Hanging DrywallAn New Innovative Tool For Hanging Drywall

Hanging sheetrock can be back breaking work and almost impossible to do without two people, particularly if hanging sheetrock on the ceiling. Most professional drywall hangers and do-it-yourself homeowners use a drywall jack or a homemade T-bar to hold the drywall in place while they fasten it to the ceilings. However, for the do-it-yourself homeowner renting a drywall jack can be expensive and using a T-bar can take some getting use to. There is now a new alternative. I recently discovered a rather innovative tool for hanging drywall on ceilings and walls. The tool is extremely low cost, simple to use and very effective for holding drywall in place.

The drywall tool goes by the name ?FREE HANDS?. It is effectively a support tool for hanging sheetrock on ceilings and eliminates the need for a drywall jack or a T-bar. In addition, the device can also be used for hanging sheetrock on walls. Its simplicity is what makes it so unique.

The FREE HAND drywall tool simply consists of two small brackets that can be quickly secured into ceiling joists or wall studs prior to hanging the drywall. The drywall installer then simply slides the drywall into the FREE HAND tool to support the weight of the drywall while it is being secured with screws or nails. FREE HAND can also be used on walls, by measuring down from the ceiling 48 inches and securing the FREE HAND tool to a wall stud. The sheetrock can then be slid into place up against the wall studs and then fastened with drywall nails or screws.

Though FREE HAND is low tech it is very effective and low cost. The developer and manufacture, Quality Tool, advertise and sell the product on their website.

The next time you plan on hanging sheetrock you may want to consider this alternative for holding drywall. It could save you time, money and maybe even a sore neck and back.
