I remember years ago my wife and I used to tag-team drywall onto ceilings using T-braces. We probably survived this terrible idea because I learned the right mechanical assist would save my marriage and my back. The lifters work as advertized and are essential for the DIYer without a heavy duty work crew. It gives you time to position and attach the drywall without worrying how long you can keep your arms over your head to drive enough nails to hold a sheet in place. Try it, you’ll like it.
