In conjunction with KBIS in Las Vegas next week, January 21-23, the International Builders Show (IBS) will also be taking place. I attended KBIS last year and crossed over to IBS checking out all the many suppliers for the home building industry. It’s fascinating to learn about new products and see all the many materials available to the industry. One company I am looking forward to visiting at IBS is the supplier Door Stud, which is a door installation tool that revolutionizes how builders install pre-hung or slab doors.
The Door Stud cuts typical installation labor time in half. The Door Stud is a steel constructed design with a single action clamp and soft-grip handles. This durable tool simplifies the install of 1-3/8-in. and 1-3/4- in. pre-hung or slab doors. With the Door Stud, the installer handles a door once. It is vertically adjustable; holding the door upright and leveling the door in three directions for preparation of installation. The Door Stud enables the installer to conduct a single person, hands-free installation by mobilizing the door and preventing it from resting against the interior walls of the home; thus preventing damage to the wall, the door and the installer. Once the door installation is complete, the Door Stud is removed from the bottom edge of the door, ready to be used on the next job.
A range of products are available which includes the standard at just $249.99 and a commercial grade door installation tool for heavier doors. A quick door installation kit is also available to expedite the door hanging process for professional builders, which allows for hanging doors five times faster.
They have 2 main products for your door installation needs (sold in pairs):
For the DIY, the Door Stud features some instructional info and tips on their blog and for more product info visit their Instagram here.
Understanding door types is extremely important too for installation, everything from interior to exterior doors, to pre-hung and slab doors. I know I’ve had my fair share of door installation problems in past projects - especially in older homes - so a product like the Door Stud offers assistance for the variety of door types in project installation.
Looking forward to visiting Door Stud this coming week at the International Builders Show. They will be in booth number SU3816 if you are attending and would like to learn more about the product.
