Used this to side a new house with 8 1/4" Hardiplank lap siding, with a 7" reveal. Two decades ago we made our own hangers... Glad I found theses for my first Hardi job, because they're fantastic and easily made it a two-person job (one to cut and one to hang). It is also easily a one person job for low work, but climbing up and down from scaffolding for high work will get old. There are many glowing reviews of this product, and you should believe them, so here are some tips and thoughts:

- These hangers reference the bottom of each course - definitely the most accurate way to hang siding and much better than hanger/gauge products that reference the top of each course. Hardi can vary in height so if the hanger hangs from/references the top of the board, you are immediately introducing error into the procedure. Geckos do it the smart way.

- For blind nailing, some courses will snug up very tight to the wall, certainly short pieces. This will mean that you have to grab the bottom lip of the board and pull out a bit to slip the Gecko in. For the most part, you'll be able to insert a Gecko one-handed. I have no experience using these Geckos with face nailing, only blind nailing.

- Geckos have two rails that the Hardi will rest on, you need to keep an eye on how the Hardi rests on the rails so that you know the tool is perpendicular to the Hardi plank. If the tool is positioned off-vertical, you will introduce error.

- You must watch the Gecko when setting the Hardi down into the Geckos. It is heavy enough to make the Geckos slip a bit downward and introduce error. The procedure is simple: clamp the Gecko so it is snug to the reference course. Lightly set the next course onto the Gecko rails.

Carpenter and contractor for 30 yrs.

Got a siding job, a job I've done many times in the past but rarely do anymore. Called for Hardiplank fiber-cement siding, which I haven't used before, so I did all the research I could in an attempt to be as efficient as possible. I started the job solo a couple of days before the siding crew that was hired showed up. Got all my elevations and transferred all my course lines and went to work. I immediately found that the individual planks varied in width by around 3/16", a discrepancy that adds up very quickly and would usually make it necessary to check layout constantly. However, because these gauges clamp on rather than hang from the top of the previous course, they register from the bottom, which is the true course line. I was hitting my lines consistently, and felt the need to check layout much less often.

When the siding crew showed up they rolled their eyes at my fancy green gauges, but in less than an hour I could barely pry them out of their paws. Ended up selling to the lead guy for what I paid so he'd have them for his next job that Monday.

I'll be buying another set.

These are great if you're doing a siding job alone. They are easy to use and make the job a breeze. The only improvement I would like to see is more exposure settings. The holes are drilled so that exposures can be set on 5,6,7, or 8 inches only; nothing in between. My exposure needed to be 6.75 inches in order for the siding to align with the top of windows and doors so I had to hot glue a 1/4 inch spacer to make it work. Still, a great product; worth the money. I would buy again.

this is a very nicely built tool.but it will not work on beaded hardie board, because the lock down mechanism lands in the recess of the bead.

figured i would give these a try and i am glad i did, they are slick. it does take some time to adjust them to the correct reveal but once you do its a breeze to use. we usually have a three man crew when working a siding job these basically made the third guy stand around. we are going to get another set so we can do two walls at once. they slide right on and lock on tight, the only issue with them is the top where the siding slips in, angles away from the wall slightly so sometimes the siding will slip down past the lip slightly but as long as you keep and eye on it and push them in alittle theres no problem. overall we are extremely happy and can honestly say they have sped up productivity.

I feel like these are overpriced, but it's something that I had to have, so I sucked it up. I have also had problems with the siding, that is supposed to be held up, sliding off the designated lip, and falling down inside (nearest the house) until it caught (closer to the screw/knob area). It does secure well to the lower lap that holds it in place.

We just started a 4K sq. ft. Hardie siding job. My guys have never used a siding hanger in the past as we rarely do huge jobs like this. I ordered ONE set of these Gecko hangers and my lead man called yesterday wanting ANOTHER ONE!! It will MORE THAN pay for itself in labor saved!!! My men are picky when it comes to tools. We use only the best and expect the best from them. This qualifies!!!
Thanks!!!

The Hardi Board gauges are simple to use and hold siding firmly in place .YOU simply unpack slide gauges up under previous piece of Hardi Board siding ,lock down , set next piece of siding on gauges and nail in place.Very simply put it made a 2 man job into a one man job and saved time also!
