    Default Searching for this tool


    Hi, have been looking on the net for a set of board clamps I used years ago, for sheeting ceilings on your own does anyone recognise the make of tool?
    Two clamps attach to the end or side of the sheet (they basically are D shaped rings with clamp atached
    Two hooks that clamp onto the joist
    You lift the edge of the sheet up and it hangs verticaly and you can then swing the sheet up and deadman it in place a few screws and remove the clamps, job done
    Anyone got a set I could buy/hire?
    regards

    ive got a board clip, that works in a similar fashion, you fix it to the board in situe and it then hold s the next board in place as you go.
