"After years of working alone as a general contractor, I found it difficult to do many jobs without the help of an extra set hands, especially when it came to installing doors. So, I set out to find an easy way to to allow me to hold the door in place, so I could make adjustment, shim and secure it without frustration or help of another person. In 2004 that became a reality with the development of my DOOR HOLDER KIT. It' s perfect for contractors or the average DIYer and totally reusable."
