    Comments about Support Bar - 3rd Hand Support System:

    I'm restoring a car and needed a help holding the gas tank up while I remove and reattach the straps. Worked perfect!!

    It would help if it had more adjustment holes. The tightener on the rod works ok when you are between adjustment holes but I was afraid to tighten too tight b/c I didn't want go damage it. It did slip a little.

        This equipment is the perfect solution to hanging dry wall ceilings or the like, when strenght is only part of the problem. I put in a new bead board ceiling on my porch and even with a second set of hands from a friend, we could not have kept the 25-20 lbs. of 4' X 8' bead board in place to screw it into 2X4s on the ceiling. These poles were the perfect solution. Additionally, using them to enclose a small room while I sanded joint compound kept the mess enclosed in a way that drop clothes could not do. I highly recommend these.

          Comments about Support Bar - 3rd Hand Support System:

          I used this when I needed a hand supporting the cross ties of our deck trellis while I repaired the side supports. This was an impossible task to try alone with the wisteria vines restricting movement. This was the perfect solution. When finished, I took the support bar inside to help secure the latches on our double-hung windows - a dreaded job to do single handed. Now I can manage myself. Well worth the money for someone faced with tasks requiring more than two hands.

                I used this in a repair project inn my home and it worked very well to hold things in place on the ceiling while I was putting up permaneent supports. I could not have completed this project by myself without this third hand.

                    Bought 3, one for me and two for my daughter who is a Home repair contractor. I use for minor repairs on home; she uses for dry wall, crown molding, etc. Both of us work alone so extra hands are a God send.
