The product closes the gaps as advertised but does not release when pushing the shaft arm all the way forward per the instructions. I need to turn the ratchet shaft with a screwdriver to release it...may be the ratchet spring just needs adjusted (haven't monkeyed with it yet), either way I would expect a tool for this price to work correctly out of the box.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TeachAg Awesome purchase!
I am DIYing hardwood floors, which I have previous experience with. This time, I looked for an easier way to work up close to the walls and keep the floor pieces positioned tightly and correctly during installation. This tool was perfect. Prior to this purchase, I was using a pry bar to wedge the pieces of flooring together. This generally was a two person job, due to holding the pry bar in place and nailing the board down. Now it is a one person job, that can be completed easily with the use of the Powerjack 500.

This is a very simple tool to use that has save lots of time and frustration that would have occurred while attempting to close the spaces during the installation of a hardwood floor. All joints are tight and no damage occurred by potentially using other methods. Spend the money on the tool, it is worth every penny. Very well constructed.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BillJ Works great
I did one room without this tool and it was difficult to use just crow bars and shims to keep the boards tight. I’m currently installing another oak floor with inlay and this tool is real handy, if you’re working by yourself. I recommend it, especially if you’re working alone.

Heavy duty, well made tool. I have owned Model 100's for over twenty years. I expect this tool to perform equally long time with minimal maintenance. Pricey, but worth it for a relliable tool.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Edward This product does what it claims to do.
Excellent tool, was able to close the gaps and nail down the flooring while it held the plank in place. I gave this product four stars on value since it is a bit pricey. If your a pro this is a must have and the cost is not an issue. If not you might have to bit the bullet if you want a professional installation and your a DIYer. Would love to see this tool as a rental item at Home Depot.
