DoorJak Installation Cart

doorjak_50.gifAbout three months back we were tasked with hanging a 360 lb acoustical door and there wasn't a single aspect about the project that could be deemed as 'easy.' Slinging around an immense, heavy slab in a finished space was terrifying. It wasn't an experience that we're interested in repeating.

Which is why our ears pricked up a bit at the DoorJak 50 Installation Cart. It's essentially a specialized dolly that has the ability to raise and lower the load. This means that instead of four people spending five hours hanging the door, it would be more like one person spending three hours hanging the door. In that context, the $675+ price tag is more than reasonable (a larger model goes for nearly $3000).

For more information and purchase details go to DoorJak

If this is way out of your league, but you're still interested in some mechanical advantage with your door hanging, see our review of the EZY Hang Door Lifter.
