The FastCap has a built in jaw that is perfect for getting into the 1/4" gap between the wall and your hardwood flooring to pull those last few rows up tight for nailing or gluedown.

For the record, I am over 50.

I bought a pair to install 500 sq/ft of 5/8 pre-finished bamboo flooring. Like another reviewer said, I have to commend Amazon.com for their service. One arrived damaged, and Amazon.com overnighted a replacement. Kudos to them.

The quick clamp feature was good when I had to do a 180 degree turn to square up and install custom tongues, and the jack feature is invaluable for racking the planks when I'm so close to the wall that I can't even use my T&G pneumatic nailer. They paid for themselves on the first use. A definite must have if you plan to do any serious wood floor installs.

Well, it seemed like a good idea, serving both as a cabinet and flooring installation tool. As a helping hand for lifting cabinets slightly off of the floor, it worked great. However, when used for compressing tongue and groove flooring by wedging between wall and floorboards, it did not have enough strength to do the job - as a matter of fact, as I was squeezing the grip to increase pressure, the grip actually broke off in my hand. Kind of a scary way to let you know that you have exceeded its capacity. Also, one of the plastic feet broke fairly easily when I dropped the jack.

Bottom line, I think the materials used should be more durable and resilient. I have not yet contacted the seller to see if they will warrany this or not.

NEW: I contacted FastCap and told them what happened. They apologized and sent me a new jack within a few days - no questions asked, no return of old jack required. Excellent customer service the way it should be! 5 Stars for service!

These jacks work well both to clamp and spread. The way they are designed, allows one to insert the spreading jaws into as little as a 1/4" of space and then lift or spread them apart. I jack up sagging doors so I can more easily tighten the hinge screws. They are made in China and so the so quality of construction is not superb, I had to send one set back for replacement as the attachment screw for one of the jaws was missing and I couldn't put in a new one as the hole had no threads. I have to commend Amazon.com though because they had a new set shipped out to me in days, even before I sent the old ones back! I tried to jack up my car with one of them, but the plastic handle broke because I put too much force on it, but they replaced that one too, so now I know what their limitations are.

I recently purchased this item from Amazon. I thought "What a great idea". However, when it arrived I opened the box pulled on the plastic end of the jack and it came away in my hand leaving the rest of the jack inside the box The manufacturer had omited to put a screw in to secure it.

As for the overall quality: The plastic is the cheap junk that will break when any pressure is applied. I was stupid enough to buy some clamps through ebay only to have the handles break after a couple of squeezes( and I'm no Arnold Swartzeneger). Looking at the style & quality these must be made by the same people.
The great thing about Amazon is you can send stuff back, which I promptly did.
My advice is wait until one of the major manufacturers comes out with a similar item. You will pay more for it but nothing is more frustrating than tools that break on the job.

The clamp is very usful and I like the jack-type option. I lifted my jetted tub and it made a three man job into a single man job without any blood or missing body parts. Good tool for the money.

I used the JACK to put in some tongue and groove flooring, and it worked great until the last course. I was squeezing the handle (with only one hand) to tighten up the joint when the handle snapped in two.

After emailing the manufacturer, they sent out a replacement which I received in about a week.

5 stars for customer service, but a product shouldn't break when you're using for something it's designed to do.

I was skeptical, but these little guys proved themselves. I was able to lift one end of a couch by placing the two jacks 12 inches apart on one end of the couch. They lifted the couch enough for me to get a furniture roller under it on that end. Then I removed the jacks, placed them on the other end and put another furniture roller under that end of the couch. Next, I used them in the same fashion to lift a stacked washer/dryer unit in order to put appliance roller under the unit.

Caveat - Be careful not to place your limbs (hands, fingers, feet, etc.) under the elevated load unless absolutely necessary. Every time that I used the jacks to lift, I placed a wood block under the load. That way if the load slipped off the jack, my fingers wouldn't get crushed as I was placing the furniture roller under the load.

The "L" shaped lift bracket could stand to be 2" longer and the footing base a little larger, but they got the job done.

Well worth the money!!!!
