What Other’s Say:

Scott here, one of the guys I work with, was just looking at/asking about my Stand-In jacks. Claims he is going to buy some. He likes how it looks like I am not working hard, yet installing multiple kitchens a day.
More than 500 kitchens installed, using your Jack’s.
Thanks for sharing your idea!


“I bought The Stand-in a couple of years ago & it’s the best investment I’ve ever made. I’ve done many kitchens by myself since then & I don’t know what I would do without it! Even when I have a helper, I just let him do other things while I install the cabinets. You guys should go on Shark Tank & these should be in every home improvement and tool store across America!” -Chris
“I run state jobs & a carpenter’s rate is $62.00, a laborer’s rate is $47.50. With the Stand-In, I’m able to eliminate the laborer which makes me more competitive with my bidding. We do hundreds of housing authority kitchens every year, this product makes the need for a laborer not necessary.” -William

I was introduced to, and was able to use your product in the field, and was very impressed by its simplicity and complete functionality. I’ve been in the trade for 25 years and don’t find many innovations that change the way I do things… but I’m already rethinking my process having used them. Thank you for the speedy response and look forward to using my own set. I’ll be spreading the word!
