The 3rd Hand HD is the help you have been looking for. It is rugged, built to last a lifetime, and it's never late for work! If you've ever wishedyou had an extra hand, here it is. The 3rd Hand HD can brace, clamp, or provide support wherever and whenever you might need it.
The Contractor Pack Package Deal: Fit Everything You Need in One Bag!
To keep all of these handy tools organized, the 3rd Hand Contractor Pack comes with a ballistic nylon carrying bag. The bag carries all four 3rd Hand HD poles and all the accessories: four Mag Dust Barrier feet, four UniversalFOOT Feet (6x6 inch), eight Articulating Feet (3x3-inch).
If you're a contractor or do-it-yourselfer who needs reliable support, 3rd Hand HD poles are the perfect assistant--and they're never late for work! With a rugged 150-pound load capacity, the heavy-gauge steel poles are as useful as an extra set of hands, and with a neoprene grip, they are incredibly comfortable to use.
Designed for optimum versatility, 3rd Hand HD Poles telescope from 4.75 to 12.0 feet in length. This ample range means you can keep your poles on hand from job to job, whether you're working on high ceilings or in tight spaces.
A dual adjustment system gives you two options for quickly choosing your length: use the tightening knob for smaller adjustments or lock in your desired height with the ball detents, which are spaced 12 inches apart along each pole.
Once a pole is in position, simply use the easy-pump handle to get maximum stability for clamping, bracing, and support. Use one or two poles for light-duty projects--such as hanging shelves--or all four poles for larger jobs--such as stabilizing ceilings (four Hand HD poles are included in the Contractor Pack).
When the job is complete, the poles' quick-release levers make disassembly a snap.
Handy Accessories Provide Versatility on the Job
When you're bracing a workpiece, such as a wooden cabinet, you want to be sure it's going to remain stable. That's why each FastCap 3rd Hand HD Poles is equipped with a 360-degree fully articulating head and food (eight included in kit). These 3x3-inch textured pads will solidly grip surfaces at virtually any angle, and they can be micro adjusted for the right fit.
When you want a larger grip area at the base of your poles, swap in the 6x6-inch 3rd Hand Universal Feet (four included), which are ideal for just about any job. Or if you're planning to seal off your work area to minimize dust transfer, attach the magnetic Mag Dust Barrier feet (four included) for a 100% seal and 0% dust.
To keep all of these handy feet organized, the 3rd Hand Contractor Pack comes with a ballistic nylon carrying bag. The bag carries all four 3rd Hand HD poles and all the accessories.

Top Customer Reviews
1) These poles supposedly didn't work for dust barriers. They now come with a "magnetic dust foot" that should make hanging plastic sheeting a breeze. Stand the pole up (see below), attach the sheeting to the pole with the magnetic feet while on the ground, then raise the poles up. Pretty easy.
2) These poles supposedly tipped over easily. The kit now comes with "universal feet" that allow the poles to stand up on their own. Tipping shouldn't be a problem.
3) The poles are supposedly too long for cabinets. My poles came marked with a location to cut them at if you want them short enough for cabinets. No need to worry about voiding the warranty.
4) Some people find the poles too heavy. Unless all you want to use them for is plastic sheeting, in my opinion, the heavier they are, the heavier-duty they are, and I'll take heavy duty over light weight any day of the week.
5) The poles supposedly don't fit in the bag. They do fit if you take the feet off, and the feet (including the universal feet and the magnetic dust feet) will all fit in the bag with the poles. I would guess you could probably get a couple more poles in there too. It would be nice if there was a bag for the feet or something so they didn't end up all over the inside of the bag, but just about anything would do for that.
6) The Zipwall system is supposedly better because it comes with the foam rails. Rip a 2x4 down into four 1x2's and attach some cheap weatherstripping available at any home improvement store. You now have your foam rails.Read more ›
I will start by saying that the company must have had many complaints with the poles being used to put up plastic barriers. The box that mine came in show several different uses for the poles in line drawing form. The picture of the poles being used for plastic barriers was covered up suggesting the possibility that they received some grief from Zip Wall, or customers frustrated by the attempt to use them in place of Zip Walls.
Personally I find the 3rd hand product quite heavy and cumbersome to use for supporting plastic sheets. Especially when trying to get them up to 9 & ½ foot ceilings! I had to use duct tape to get the plastic that high. Second, after I jacked the pole up onto the main tee and moved onto the second pole, the first pole came crashing down behind me as I jacked the second pole a little too much causing loss of tension on the first. OK so the 3rd Hand failed to please me on plastic barriers on tall metal grid ceilings. Onto the next project.
For crown molding, the 3rd Hand is just that. They performed as expected. The slanting feet and square top plate kept the poles where I placed them. Laying the crown molding on top of the poles was a learning experience. When installing a 16' length of crown, you must place your ladder in the middle of the length so that you don't tip the center pole over or as in my first attempt, the 2 middle poles.Read more ›
The 3rd Hand Poles are very sturdy, and are easily elongated or shortened. They perform as advertised and are a great help when installing long runs of crown molding.
Ok... I needed the 3rd hands for controlling dust when I removed the old plaster from wall bricks so I could repair them. Since this is interior work I really need to keep the dust from getting all over the place.
The first part of the job however was to fix a crack in the poured basement wall. The crack runs from floor to ceiling. The top of the crack runs behind a cold air return duct which I needed to either cut in half or move a lot of sheet metal to remove. Since the 3rd hand can support 70 lbs. each I supported the item with 3 of them and cut it in half then lowered it to the floor.
Once the crack was repaired I now needed to reinstall the sheet metal. However the plaster ceiling (in a hundred year old house) had sagged and hung down about 3 inces and I could not get the duct to fit properly let alone support it properly [I didn't want to use a really long screw since I was afraid further sagging would rip it out].
I used the 3rd hands to gradually lift the ceiling running 4 1/2 inch screws with fender washers about every 6 inches into sound joists.Read more ›
