PV-20 Wall Puller Framing Tool Review
With the Wall Puller, framers can easily adjust the bottom plate of a wall so that it meets the layout line on the subfloor
If you side or even just sheathe walls before you stand them, getting the bottom plate on the layout line can be problematic. Although a few well-placed blows with a sledgehammer will move the bottom plate outward, you can’t move the wall inward this way without damaging expensive siding or, for second-floor walls, swinging the sledge from a ladder.
A peavey is a tool loggers use to manipulate fallen tree trunks. The Wall Puller is a miniature version of a logger’s peavey, and it works in a similar fashion to pull in wall plates. With the long arm of the tool held parallel to the erect wall, you drive the point of the short arm into the plate to be moved and the point of the long arm into the subfloor. Pull, and the plate moves toward you. To move a plate away from you, drive the point of the long arm into the subfloor next to the plate and push. Leverage is a beautiful thing.
The Wall Puller is available as well in a 30-in. size (model no. PV-30) for $21.
