I recommend using a 2x4 or 2x6 at least 36" long against the wall that you are going to press against to keep from damaging the wall or pushing a single stud out of place. The wall jack can generate a lot of force and in the hands of a careless installer it could dislocate a wall or partition.
While this tool is designed primarily for installing hardwood flooring, creative carpenters will undoubtedly find many was to use this tool to precisely move framing members. It is worth every penny that I paid for it.
I am experienced in laying laminate floors as I always chose to go that route with our past homes. Our current home, however, had a partial hardwood floor installed... and the rest was carpet of the brand 'Nasty'. So that had to go. Ripping out the 700 sq ft of Bruce Hardwood flooring would be a nightmare given that it was stapled and and I also felt it would be capital destruction as it is valuable and pretty.
So I opted to buy another 2000+ sq ft of hardwood and finish what the previous owners started.
Once I started witht he diningroom I noticed something that I never really experienced with Laminate... it was a pain to keep the boards tight and then once you had them tight you had to KEEP them tight while hammering. I tried all the online suggestions: using planks, boards, wedges, scalpels and what have you to create leverage to get the board together but , although it does work, I could not believe the job would be finished quickly and professionally. I needed something better and I assumed that someone MUST HAVE thought of a solution.
Anyways, I am a quick learner and a search on Amazon put me in touch with this baby, the QuikJack.
About this item
Amazon got it to me overnight (i heart Prime Membership) and I lost little time.
The item is pretty big and sturdy. It is a specially designed Jack that leaves your hands free to operate your cleat nailer (I bought a pneumatic one, LOOOOVE IT!!).
As you can see from the pictures: you can create lots of easy configs and floorpositions for this jack. I did not nail it in but used a stud that was offset against the wall for leverage. Worked SUPERFAST. I think I went 10x faster than the manual solution. This was truly worth every penny I spent on it.Read more ›
There are certain negative points here. If the wall on the right is too close, then the handle will stand in the way and you cannot use the tool. The weight of the tool together with the necessary 2x4 is considerable and it will give you quite a bit of exercise. The far side wall must have hard points against which you can press, otherwise you must nail another 2x4 to the subfloor next to the far side wall to serve as a support, and this technique will not work with the last couple of laps. It does have the tendency to raise the board on which you work.
One important positive point to mention is that it will work on the last lap as long as the wall has hard points.
