T-JAK®... Another Name For An Adjustable, Reusable 2X4

Green tool helps you tackle hard-to-reach home remodeling projects

LONG GROVE, IL-August 18, 2008 - The T-JAK® is designed to eliminate the waste associated with using make-shift bracing and cleats. It is used to support hard-to-reach overhead projects such as cabinets, crown moldings, ceiling beams and garage doors. With over fifty thousand tools in use today, the T-JAK® not only saves time and labor but the environment too.

The T-JAK® Support Tools have received wide acclaim from professional publications, carpenters, tradesmen, and do-it-yourselfers. The U.S. Patent Office recognized the design and ingenuity of the T-JAK® by awarding it a patent in the early 1990's. It quickly became the "Tool of Choice" by the "Cabinet Installers of America". The T-JAK® is "Tested and Approved" by "The Handyman Club of America". It is being used regularly on "This Old House".

"This useful and practical product is a snap to set up, taking only about five minutes. It can be used to support ceiling drywall, cabinets and paneling. One or two T-JAKs is like having an extra pair of hands," according to Handyman Magazine's review which regularly tests and approves new and innovative tools in the marketplace.
The unique feature of T-JAK® is the quick-tilt adjustment knob. It allows for easy positioning and fine precision tuning while under heavy loads. The T-JAK® assembles and disassembles quickly, forming an almost unlimited array of different application possibilities.

According to the manufacturer, the T-JAK® is an interchangeable system of all-purpose work support tools with an adjustment range of 15" to 10'. This tool is made for do-it-yourselfers and professional contractors alike. Whether you are installing cabinets, hanging ceiling drywall or building a deck, T-JAK® can be the extra pair of hands you need.
