As a state licensed builder, I find this product simple to install with easy directions (pay attention to whether it is used to support metal or wood), and it simply handles it's business. Secure and solid, it holds up no matter how many times I bash into it (funny how the places you need these for are always in the most inconvenient places, i.e. The middle of my basement wood shop). Even comes painted up with scratch resistant durable paint (which is code in my state when used in a basement) which saves me the hassle when I need to install them.
Pros: Easy to Use, Performs Well, Easy to Install, Easy to Work With, Straight, Good Shape, Easy to Clean, High Quality, Reliable, handles it's business
Used the jack post to support ceiling joist to replace a 21 foot long, 3 1/2 " wide and 16" deep support beam in house. "Tiger" jack post were easy and fast to set up. They worked great and the price was right.
Pros: Easy to Use, Performs Well, Easy to Install, Easy to Work With, Economical
Cons: support brackets on end of posts should have, smaller holes for differnt size screws for, temporary use
We used the jackpost to hold the porch roof up while ,replacing the floor and the old post . It was easy to put the Jackpost in place next to an old post and lift the weight of the roof up so the old post could be easily removed. We raised the jackpost with a wrench
Pros: Easy to Use, Performs Well, Easy to Install, Easy to Work With, Reliable, Light Weight
Using two treated landscape timbers, two treated 8' 2x4 studs, and two cinder blocks you can make a very stable firewood stacking system that will keep your firewood off of the ground. If built out in the open, a tarp can be draped over the 2x4s to keep the rain off of your logs and still allow for air circulation to dry out your wood.
Pros: Performs Well, Easy to Install, Easy to Work With, Great Value, High Quality, Economical, Reliable
This product worked for what I needed it to do but was kinda loose and slopy. It would have been much better if the pipe screw insert would either snap in or screw into the pipe. It fit so loose that it had a tendancy to fall out and just made using this product by my self harder than it needed to be. 3 or 4 hands would have made it easier too.. It reminds me of many Chinese built tools I've used before. Even though this was a long way from being a well machined presision tool.. the price was very reasonable and it did the job I needed so I won't be returning it'
Used to raise a corner of an 8ft X 20ft deck 4 inches while I replaced a rotted post. I nailed both the top and bottom plate to wood for safety and I had no problem turning the screw with a monkey wrench to level the beam. Was easier than I thought it would be.
The only issue I had was that I believe that I got a return. I purchased 2 and had 2 prior to purchase. Every single one had a nut which was capped and smooth, easy to work with, and one of the packages came with one regular nut. Not a big deal but the capped ones are easier to work with. Also the end plate on one of them was bent, I would have exchanged it for another one in store, but I bought the last two and the project could not have waited.
I needed to replace two 6 x 6 posts on my front porch. I didn't want to jerry-rig a support to hold up my roof and found this unit online at a good price. I used concrete stepping stone(s) at about 1 foot from rotted post as a base for leveling, firm support and adjusting initial height of jack (this prevented curling of the base plate as was mentioned in another review.) Firmed jack in place by hand, used a plumb bob to insure vertical placement, then used a wrench to turn the screw at the top of jack to raise the beam. Removed old post, set in new post, turned screw to lower beam. Very simple, secure and I felt far safer than anything I could have jerry rigged. I'm a simple 'do-it-yourself' kinda guy. Never tried this before but feel comfortable doing it again.
Bought 14 of these to raise a single family cap cod. While they did the job and I hope to be able to use them again in the future the quality is not all that great. If I had a selection between these and a better made version for a higher price I would choose the higher price.
The house jack stands worked great. I can't say much for the condition of all the packages when they arrived, as everyone was ripped open. Luckily all the parts were still inside. A little more tape on the ends before shipment would be helpful.
Pros: Easy to Use, Easy to Install, Easy to Work With
The jacking post were packaged so that they were easily handled and fit in the trunk (about 4.5'). They were easy to assemble but a third hand would have helped to hold the floating top plate straight while supporting the post and tightening the screw adjustment. I was able to install 4 of them by myself in under an hour and adjust to evenly support the load of a steel frame. I would use these jacking posts again.
Pros: Performs Well, Easy to Install, Good Size & Weight, Straight, Great Value
I used six of the large posts to jack-up / level part of my basement. The foundation wall, circa 1930 was cracked and part of the house "sunk". These are well built, and worth every penny! They are also easy to use. A+ all the way!
