While installing 18 – 4′ Rocka steps, this tool has already paid for itself. I was hesitant to purchase based on the price point but I have zero regrets now that I have it. After completing the job I look at that hillside and wonder how on earth I ever installed these steps without it. This tool optimized the old adage, “Work smarter, not harder.” The only knock I have on this clamp is the latch that keeps the clamp open tends to fall off and must be held until tension is applied, but that is so minor its hardly worth mentioning. Great tool, my back and shoulders thank you!
