ButtHanger and EZ-Backer

What makes this product green?

  • Reduces material use


The ButtHanger, a simple device made from wood strapping and metal cross pieces, eliminates the single most problematic aspect of interior finish work—the drywall butt joint. By enabling the laying out and hanging of board finish ends to space rather than to framing, the Butthanger bends the butt ends inward about 1/8". This changes a labor-intensive and difficult 3'-wide mud joint into a quick and easy 1'-wide one while both reducing cut-off waste and joint compound used for butt joints. EZ-Backer is an all-steel commercial version of the ButtHanger.
