3rd hand

"Recently we had a decorative beam on our ceiling fall. To reattach it to the ceiling the 3rd hand was exactly what we needed to give us the support to hold the beam in place. It was like having an extra person to help you. The 3rd hand made the job alot easier than it would have been without it."
