The Cepco floor jack is a fantastic tool if you are installing hardwood flooring and want really tight joints in those areas next to a wall where you cannot get a flooring nailer. Instead of using screwdrivers, chisels, or wedges to force the flooring together, the floor jack simply presses it into place with no bother and no fuss.
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.

After using a friends, I decided to buy my own, but balked at the price. A trip to Northern Tool for a trailer jack, and about $10 worth of parts from HD, and I had an equally functional and more attractive tool for less than $50. I've now made about half a dozen because they really are very useful, but not for $150 each.

I purchased the QJ11, to assist in the installation of hardwood flooring. The jack works as described and allowed me to install the floors with minimum waste, as I was able to straighten bowed strips. The only reccomendation I would make, to the tool, is to add some sort of protection to the unused foot mounting bracket, to prevent possible scratching of finished flooring.

Background you can skip
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.

Used this Quickjack to install about 450 square feet of 3/4 inch oak flooring. It snugs boards tightly together even when nothing else works and it doesn't damage the boards. I only gave it 4 stars because the handle interferes with the wall and could be designed much better. It is also priced a bit high compared to the other tools I purchased. I used it to install prefinished flooring and I had to be very careful that this tool didn't scratch it as I moved it around the room. All in all a very useful tool with a few issues that I noted.

I like this tool. It really helped me get a professional looking job done with my 3/4 Cherry Hardwood floors. I didn't need it on every row of boards but it help me straighten them up when they got out of line.

I just installed some 200sqft of prime 12ft heart pine boards with it, and I think it was worth the money. Even though the boards were straight, the longer they are the more difficult they are to nail down tightly. This tool will get them as tight as they can go given the imperfections of the subfloor. It is a much more versatile tool than the cheaper stuff.

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.
