These are a great invention: used these when I built my addition: couldn’t have done it without them. Description from Lee Valley website, where I bought them:
“This is a tool long overdue in the market.
It can exert up to 2000 lb of force with 80 lb of force on the turnbuckle handle. In most common use, one plate is screwed to a 2×4 and the other to a stud wall or post. The free end of the 2×4 is then nailed or screwed to a joist, deck, floor, etc.
Maximum travel is 7-3/4”. Better than a hired hand. Made in USA. “
Some light surface rust, but they work perfectly. These are $40 a pair, or $70 for the set of four, plus shipping from zip 06092.
