We’ve covered other door and panel lifters and kickers before, but what makes the Improtec Lift’n’Lock different is you can take you foot off the device and whatever you’re lifting stays lifted. When you’re done you simply push on the yellow release lever to unlock it.

The Lift’n’Lock can raise stuff up to 2.5″ high. It’ll cost you $23 before the $14 shipping and handling charges.

    Looks great. I’d pay the cost but not that outrageous shipping.

    $14 for shipping and handling charges ?

    Can someone explain how places like dealextreme ship a truckload of cheap crap to your doorstep from hongkong for free..?

    Maybe I’m dumb – but “free shipping” , free vacations if you buy this or that, or free anything else – is just a marketing gimmick.

    I note that Amazon sometimes is not the lowest price – but may (or may not) be competitive – once you figure in the shipping. What a surprise – they jack the base price up so they can offer “free shippping”

    Similarly high S&H costs also seem like a marketing gimmick. They probably could say that the tool was $32 with $5 shipping- but $23 might have sounded like a better price point. Then again – maybe this is such a small operation that they have to purchase boxes and packing material at retail and figure in a drive to the Post Office into the cost.

    While in general I agree with your sentiment, I’ve found that if you do your homework sometimes the choice with free shipping is the better deal. Sometimes I buy from Amazon or another company that I have a previous relationship with even if the price is a little higher, because I know I’ll actually get the product and I don’t have to give my credit card info to some operation I know nothing about.

    I really do despise the companies or individuals that price the product low then charge ridiculous shipping and handling charges. It’s borderline fraud in my opinion. Some states have passed laws making it illegal to advertise the price after rebate as the final price, and even the states that don’t have the laws benefit because the companies don’t wan to print two sets of fliers. I really think the same laws should apply to jacked up shipping charges.

    @ Benjamin Johnson

    I agree entirely. I was perhaps a bit inarticulate in my comments – but was trying to say that you need to look at the totality of the purchase. Caveat emptor usually applies – and your thought about adding in what you know about the integrity of the seller is very important. I too have purchased from online entities like Amazon – because of prior good experience.

    On another note – for business use – we often try to purchase from a local tool supplier who also services what they sell. The local tool supplier also does not suffer from an issue that we have encounterred with at least one big-box purchase – namely buying a Milwaukee tool that was returned used and damaged by some unscrupulous buyer only to be resold as new. The only saving grace was that the big box also had the integrity to take the tool back for credit. In this instance if they crew had not been in the middle of a job when the need arose – we would have never opted for the big-box purchase.

    I think that I have also commented that we, like many others in our area, do quite a little bit of buying at local HD or Lowes stores – beacuse thay are convenient – particularly to fill in needs in the middle of a job. For some tools – that we cost into the job – and consider to be nearly expendible ( I think I commented that we use Dremels this way) we make the trade-off call to buy them where its most convenient. We don’t ever buy “capital tools” (over $500) this way.
