Door Stud®

Door Stud® Heavy

Installing doors was a time-consuming, tedious and a potentially costly process – until the Door Stud. 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.

Where To Buy?


  • "I bought this tool to get more results from my finishing crew! I would have never thought that I would nearly double our productivity. The Door Stud is totally sweet because it allows 1 guy to hang a door instead of 2 in less time and with less effort. Ultimately the door stud paid for itself in about 2 days work in labor alone. It's ABOUT TIME that someone brought innovation to hanging doors! This tool ROCKS!"

  • "Prior to the door studs, my brother and I had to hang doors together (hard to balance and get good reveal with one person). We both bought a pair of door studs and can't believe they hadn't been invented years ago. Now we're able to hang four times as many doors. Also, double doors are so much easier to deal with when you have two pairs of door studs holding everything in place. Highly recommend. Multi-purpose: I also use mine to hauling drywall and OSB around the shop."

  • "I tried the Door Stud- Heavy when I had a 4'0" wide door that I had to hang by myself. I would say that I saved at least an hour of labor and wear and tear on by back! Once the door has been stood up it's so easy to adjust the height and also to make the vertical adjustments to match the frame, not to mention how easy it is to move the door around. The other thing I really like about this tool is how little room it takes up in my truck. Once in a while you find a new tool that actually does what it claims to- this is it."

  • "My name is Corey Menning and I am the Construction Technology Assistant Professor / Program Coordinator at Iowa Lakes Community College.  This year we acquired the Door Stud!  I explained to the students what it was and they helped put it together, it took literally less than a minute.  We installed our first door as a group with traditional shims, both with and without the Door Stud.  We also tried the interior door installation kit using the brackets.  It was incredibly fast and easy to use the Door Stud in conjunction with the interior door installation kit.  We used this method for the rest of the doors and had students in small groups do it themselves to finish installing the remaining doors.  I can’t believe how much faster and easier interior door installation is using the Door Stud!  My students were extremely impressed and kept saying how much faster it was than the “traditional” installation method they had learned back in our lab.  I will definitely be using the Door Stud on all future interior door installations!!!  It’s nice to have a quality tool that is durable, sturdy, handy, innovative and MADE IN THE USA!!!  Thanks for knocking it out of the park, Door Stud!!!"

  • "Your door stud is a wicked rad tool! I can’t use it to set doors like your video shows. The type of  jobs I’m on require the jamb legs to be scribed to floor. So I use the door studs to hold the door while I remove it from the jamb. Then I roll the door out of the way. When the jamb is set I effortlessly wheel the door over and reinstall it in the jamb! This is huge considering most doors I set are 1 3/4” solid core ball busters! Here’s a pic! Thanks for the ingenuity!"

  • I knew when I saw your product in JLC that it was going to change the way I hang doors. I have been at this work for 40 plus years and have been working for the past 20 in crowded NYC apartments where working space is limited or non existent. The unit allowed me to hinge and hang 6 expensive, prefinished cherry doors in just 3 hours. With the doors hinges in place, installation of the locksets is going to be a snap. I love it!  The owner, the architect, and even the guy who made and delivered the doors were all beyond impressed. Your product made me look very good, and that ain’t easy. Thank you.

  • I was hesitant at first about the Door Stud as ‘I can install doors real well’. But when I used the Door Stud it made the job so much easier. It was simple to attached to the door and held it better than I expected. It rolled into the opening like none other….it was like butter. I’ll keep these guys handy, they will help me. Thanks!

  • My doors are 1 3/4 thick, made of Sapele, and weigh about 100 lbs. This door installation aid makes the installation very easy. The door is very stable while in the door studs and very easy to roll to the door jamb. Once there, the vertical adjustment to align the hinges is quick and precise. Saves my back and makes for a quick installation.
