Let's face it: boards aren't straight, it's just a fact of life. Manufacturers produce numerous tools and machines that are designed specifically to take the "bend out of the board". When installing hardwood flooring, warped boards can be an especially big hassle and cause gaps and inconsistencies across the floor. The Bostitch MIII-JACK 2-in-1 Hardwood Flooring Jack screws down to a subfloor and allows you to "jack" a warped plank into place. It locks into position to hold the board so it can be fastened down while it's still straight. The soft, non-mar surface protects pre-finished floor surfaces so there's no worry about damaging your boards, and the handle is designed so that it's easy to work even right up against walls. Make a tough job less tough, and trust a Bostitch MIII-JACK 2-in-1 Hardwood Flooring Jack to help you get the professional results you need, job after job.
