Rated 5 out of 5Â by inquisitor888 forge steel props
recently purchased some forge steel props mainly for boarding ceilings.
couldnt believe the strengnth of these props.
they are so much better to use & a lot stronger than my old pump action type.
i would be lost without them now

To put it simply, these props are absolutely essential if you want to plasterboard ceilings safely on your own.
I was pleasantly surprised with the robust build quality at this price. They are very easy to use, and have an excellent feature of having screw holes at both ends so you can secure them to the floor when boarding a pitched ceiling, and you can put wooden battens at the top to secure large boards. Just a shame I don't have more ceilings to board!

I purchased these plasterboard props after having broken about 10 pairs of the mastic gun type pump up props over as many years .
Normally I steer clear of the forge steel brand as it seems a bit DIYer but these props have proved me wrong, they are rock solid and I use them daily for very heavy trade plasterboarding work with some really heavy boards .I feel totally confident working under propped boards and would highly recommend anybody to spend the exra few quid on these rather than the cheaper " mastic gun type"

Very easy to use, can be tensioned one-handed simply by twisting the rod, seem nice & sturdy with nice rubbery non-slip feet. No instructions provided, but only took a minute to work out how they operate - if you can't work out how to use them, you probably shouldn't be doing anything that you would need to use them for!!
