That's the one we'll worth the extra in my opinion, just like to say I'm a carpenter so I hang doors for a living

like a spade then - but smaller
Thought it was a MTB mudguard from the thumbnail
Good idea, I’ve managed for years with improvised ideas
Tend also do another door lifter that swivels as well as lifts which I find much better when hanging doors

This or one of those air wedges ?

Air wedges are good for setting the door up in the opening but the door lifter I mentioned is better when our comes to positioning the door when you want to fits it to the door lining
Gotta be some heat just for the amount of lifts in the title

So tempted to buy this as it looks such a great idea and ive got a back door to hang. Reading the reviews on Amazon I dont trust 75% of them. Great buy, great product, fast delivery are nonsense reviews. Will read back through the posts here to see if theres a decent reccommendation.

Honestly, how bad can it be? All it does is lifting a door a few centimetres/millimetres from the ground. I am not sure how you determine the quality. Also, I too think its a great idea but how often is a not professional person hanging a door at home?
Always used an air wedge. But just bought the swivel lift as I have a few doors to fit next month
I have actually got one of these sitting on the floor in the hall as I am just about to start removing some very heavy oak and glass doors for painting. Anyway, I used this item to fit all nine of these doors, myself. Great piece of kit. Recommended, pretty sure I paid less than a tenner when I bought it a couple of years ago. The other swivel one mentioned in this thread also looks an even better option, and probably the one I would go for now.

That could be handy. Any time I've hung a door, I've taped a bit of strip wood to the bottom, then just removed it once the screws are all in.
I just use my foot lol

You've obviously never fitted a door. So you hold the door up with 2 hands align it and mark out the hinges with your third hand. Exactly the same when your drilling in the screws. Your third hand will come in handy again. I dont think so. This is a perfect tool if your fitting a door on your own.

Anyone with a serous interest in this tool see tintowellfan's comment.

You are not entirely correct, I have fitted a door but thats not the point. I see this as an incredible useful tool for those people who fit a door more often than the average household. My point is that some people would buy it for a one off and never use it again so maybe you can use something else for this one off situation instead?

You comment coupled with your original comment makes no sense at all. I have a standard house with 15 doors and they have all been off or changed at some point so I really dont understand your response to my original post "HONESTLY"

PS I determine the quality of the product by HUKDers experience of the product and some posts have been very helpful indeed.

Why not just use the same one for all 8 doors?
I thought people were big on recycling these days?
#i know it's a joke (I hope so anyway haha)
Need to hang around 8 doors so should pay for itself. Why would I need swivel love over this?

Wedges all day long.
They can be used for fitting windows also, which these can not as air wedges lock in place until you have afixed the item.

I use Winbag (homebase £10) actually Lidl are doing them cheap this week though they may not be as good as Winbag's

As a carpenter of over 50 years I feel reasonably qualified to post my opinion.

If you must buy one of these, buy the better one (swivel)

Because this will only go up and down. If you need to door to move closer to the frame slightly for hinge alignment then the swivel would do that. So it goes up down left and right.

Thanks again for your advice. Its winging its way to me. Up to now ive been using the kids text books to rest doors on to fit them into place. A pretty kack handed way of doing things but as I do my own DIY doors are big and awkward. Using my foot and having 2 hands free is ideal. As always one has to put up with moronic comments but thankfully 99% of HUKDers provide helpful comments as in the case with this door lifter. I was concerned the front lip might not be deep enough but as you've had no problems i'm guessing its fine.
