Your point is irrelevant. The hook isn't going to effect the structure of the houses you've framed. You just need to be 10% smarter than the hook and you can work around it. The time you save with being able to just hook it onto a truss rather than trying to do some kind of balancing act or dropping it down just to pull it back up.Framer53 said:I framed for 19 years and yet never had this tool. The houses I worked on with the exception of one that caught fire are all still standing, without this tool. That being said, never could get used to a hook on a gun. It always seemed to get in the way.
