Rockler Crown Molding Support
Rockler Crown Molding Support

"Many hands make light work" is a suitable motto for the new Crown Support from Bench Dog Tools. What used to require an assistant and a second ladder is now portable, permanent and unfailingly reliable. Unlike similar products on the market, the Bench Dog Crown Support straddles the molding, leaving the installer free to slide the molding and adjust it for the tightest joint possible. This eliminates the need for climbing down the ladder and adjusting the molding support device. The soft support pads are fully adjustable to accommodate crown moldings from 1-1/2" to 8" wide. Once adjusted, the support assembly swivels and wedges against the wall and ceiling, providing a secure hold with no risk of marring. Built from top quality materials, and with entirely tool-free adjustments. The Crown Support threads onto most standard painter's poles, as well as the new 12' Telescoping Pole (#31337, sold separately). A separate adapter (#33940, sold separately) is also available that allows the Crown Support to be used with the FastCap® 3rd Hand Extension, a support pole that many carpenters already own. Patent Pending.

Very satisfied Crown Moulding Installtion aid
This tool allowed me to install 4 - 9/16" crown moulding up to 16' long by myself. The ability to do this without having to ask my wife each time I needed to test fit and then install the crown moulding saved time and preventing my having to interrupt her activities all during the day. We are replacing all the crown in our house and will complete much more quickly than without this simple but effective tool.

VERY SATISFIED WITH THIS CROWN MOLDING SUPPORT. THANK YOU ROCKLER!??????
THIS SUPPORT WAS VERY HELPFUL.
THIS WAS MY FIRST TIME USING IT AND I WAS IMPRESSED HOW SIMPLE IT WAS TO USE.
I NORMALLY USE A HELPER TO HANG CROWN MOLDING,
BUT THANKS TO THE CIRCUMSTANCES OF NOT BEING ABLE TO FIND A HELPER FOR THIS JOB LED ME TO PURCHASE THIS CROWN MOLDING SUPPORT.
I WAS ABLE TO INSTALL 180 LINEAR FEET OF 5 1/4" CROWN IN
5 AND A HALF HOURS.

Very Helpful
This tool is a great help when installing crown or trim near the ceiling. I used one of my painter pole extensions to support it and it worked well. I was finally able to install crown without asking my wife for help. I highly recommend this.

Buying another!
Using this product allowed me to do two 12x14 rooms alone in under two hours. I used a scrap piece of crown to set the corners, with nice results. I'm now buying another clamp to allow me to use actual stock when setting corners. Amazing product!

Will serve well as an aid to install crown moldings as I work as a "1-man Show". The "third Hand" will make the job easier also.

Truman H on Jan 27, 2019
Will it fit a painter's pole?
A shopper on Aug 20, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, but it is not ideal. I used mine on a painters pole at first because my pole I ordered with it was on back order. If your pole is like mine, it has notched positions and I could not get the ideal angle to hole my crown molding. The pole that you get thru Rockler telescopes to any position. You rotate it to lock in place at any position.
How many crown molding support do I need to install crown molding by my self, is it needed on both ends?
Serafin U on Jan 7, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Ideally you need to wupport both ends of the workpiece. If it were short, you coould support from the middle, but on a longer piece, you probably would not be happy with the results (i.e your ends might not line up perfectly.
I purchased just 1 before I thoiugh it through, and finally broke down and bought the second one. That lets me support it solidly at both ends while I nail it in place
Can it be as a deadman for supporting coffered ceilings ?
A shopper on Jun 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: If you already have the box beams in place, yes. The unit utilizes two point contact. It works great for the cove molding. I have not tried it but you might be able to utilize it as a dead man but you would have to hold the board up and be able to adjust the telescope pole at the same time. If you had two units and some 1/2" square tubing, you could create a bridge and then adjust it against the ceiling to create a dead man. I have two of these, so I might try it.
