Rated 5 out of 5Â by Tina This product should be in stores!
This product is awesome. I had a hole in my wall that has been there for 7 months. I never got around to fixing it because I don't know how to fix drywall. The directions were very self explanitory and very easy to follow and now my hole is patched perfectly. The only complain I have with this is that it is not in stores. I saw that this kit was $10.00 to buy but another $6.00 just get it shipped to me. I checked my local Home Depot but they informed me that they do not carry this product. So I was forced to pay the shipping and handiling cost. Thanks

Great little product. It was just what I needed for my repair job.
I had No Trouble At All prepairing the wall and installing the piston to the opposite wall for the supporting of the dry wall patch. Taping the patch and applying the compound to the repaired area was a breeze. A little sanding and paint, the wall patch job was complete.
It Really Looks Great. You would never know that there was a hole there at all.

Overall the kit was pretty easy to use. I could have bought all the parts separately, but I really like that it's just want I needed to patch a hole.
The kit didn't really have instructions, but luckily there's an youTube video. Cutting a square hole probably took the most time of the patching process. For a "one off" patch, the kit is quite handy.

The kit gave us just enough drywall and powder to repair a door-handle puncture in our apartment's bathroom. The wall now has extra support too should the door handle hit the wall again.
You don't have to be a brain doctor to follow the instructions, as they were easily understood and intuitive.

The instructions make like this is a nobrainer. They seem entirely wrong in suggesting that you just need to cut the original drywall's surface with a box cutter and snap it: the result was a crumbly ragged mess on the other side of the drywall. What's really needed here is a drywall saw, so the original drywall is cut square all the way through to the other side. Even better than that might be an orbital saw, if there isn't much clearance for a hand saw (because of insulation or whatever). As for the prop part, depending on what its being stuck to, it can be unstable, and then it is coupled to an adjacent wall (so it can be damaged from either side). In my case, the opposing wall was in fact a shower stall, and had to cut through insulation to gain access to it. The correct way to support the new drywall would be to fasten furrier strips to the opposite side of the old drywall with screws driven through the old drywall, that should result in a flusher, stronger fit that is not coupled to another wall. I got as far as having placed the prop and the drywall in place, but I have a bad feeling about it, so I'll probably pull all that and start over again by enlarging the hole with a proper saw, getting a new piece of drywall, etc.
