Rated 5 out of 5Â by a1plastering Superp props
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"

Rated 4 out of 5Â by englisheccentric Useful piece of kit
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!!

I needed to support a lightweight timber roof whilst constructing a potting shed and thought a heavy duty prop or similar would be needed.
I searched Screwfix and found these supports. After reading the reviews (mostly by dryliners) I thought they would be the solution.
They certainly were! Lightweight but perfectly robust enough for the job.
The holes in the upper and lower pads were perfect to fit wider timber plates to spread the load and made the supports even more stable whilst the roof panels were put in position.
For jobs not requiring the use of a heavy duty prop these are spot on. Highly recommended!

Had a delivery of 30 sheets of plasterboard and a ceiling to put up 3 metres high these props couldn't have been more useful the twist for fine adjustment is great to, this is a great product and as always wish we had purchased them sooner.
