Impatient with the setup time required by drywall jacks or lifts, John V Santiago invented Free Hands drywall supports as a cheap and easy solution for wrestling sheets of drywall solo. Free Hands also allow you to adjust and align sheets of drywall before securing them, all by yourself.
Made from high-quality, high-impact Lexan plastic, Free Hands only weigh 4 ounces, and they’re small enough to fit in your pocket. The bright yellow color ensures that you won’t forget ’em on the job site and you’ll be able to find ’em in your toolbox.
To help justify your purchase of a pair of Free Hands, the website claims you can also use ’em as temporary stops for a doorjamb, or as temporary support. What? Pay for a doorstop? If you can’t make a pair of these from some wood scraps, maybe you shouldn’t be hanging drywall by yourself.
If you’re still interested, on their website a pair of Free Hands runs $9 plus shipping and handling. Street pricing is surprisingly higher at $13 a pair. If anybody knows why the hell you’d buy a pair of these, let us know. We must be missing something.
