Amazon: Fastcap 3rd Hand Contractor Pack (4) 5-12ft telescoping support/bracing poles w/ carry bag $154.56.

https://www.amazon.com/Fastcap-3H...B00020JO9Q

Four Telescoping Poles Give You a Hand Wherever You Need It
If you're a contractor or do-it-yourselfer who needs reliable support, 3rd Hand HD poles are the perfect assistant--and they're never late for work! With a rugged 150-pound load capacity, the heavy-gauge steel poles are as useful as an extra set of hands, and with a neoprene grip, they are incredibly comfortable to use.
Designed for optimum versatility, 3rd Hand HD Poles telescope from 4.75 to 12.0 feet in length. This ample range means you can keep your poles on hand from job to job, whether you're working on high ceilings or in tight spaces.
A dual adjustment system gives you two options for quickly choosing your length: use the tightening knob for smaller adjustments or lock in your desired height with the ball detents, which are spaced 12 inches apart along each pole.
Once a pole is in position, simply use the easy-pump handle to get maximum stability for clamping, bracing, and support. Use one or two poles for light-duty projects--such as hanging shelves--or all four poles for larger jobs--such as stabilizing ceilings (four Hand HD poles are included in the Contractor Pack).
When the job is complete, the poles' quick-release levers make disassembly a snap.
Handy Accessories Provide Versatility on the Job
When you're bracing a workpiece, such as a wooden cabinet, you want to be sure it's going to remain stable. That's why each FastCap 3rd Hand HD Poles is equipped with a 360-degree fully articulating head and food (eight included in kit). These 3x3-inch textured pads will solidly grip surfaces at virtually any angle, and they can be micro adjusted for the right fit.
When you want a larger grip area at the base of your poles, swap in the 6x6-inch 3rd Hand Universal Feet (four included), which are ideal for just about any job. Or if you're planning to seal off your work area to minimize dust transfer, attach the magnetic Mag Dust Barrier feet (four included) for a 100% seal and 0% dust.
To keep all of these handy feet organized, the 3rd Hand Contractor Pack comes with a ballistic nylon carrying bag. The bag carries all four 3rd Hand HD poles and all the accessories.
What's in the Box
Four 3rd Hand HD poles, four Mag Dust Barrier feet, four Universal Feet (6x6 inch), eight Articulating Feet (3x3-inch), and ballistic nylon carrying bag.

Yes, waiting on the 3rd party Amazon low of $112.66 could be a long wait if you need them.... Image attached.

Also, those extremely low prices from 3rd party sellers usually do not include shipping.

Painters just used my garage to paint my cabinet doors. They put up plastic sheeting as walls and used these to hold the sheets up.

These poles are great to have on a jobsite, and this is a pretty good price.

That disclaimer being said, if you are on a more conservative budget, or are a homeowner looking to use these occasionally around the house, I'd suggest looking at alternatives. No doubt these poles are the best, but you can get cheaper things that would perform the same in most situations.

I personally prefer this:
https://www.harborfreight.com/2-i...66172.html
For $60 (even cheaper with HF coupons), you can get 4. For less than the price of 4 Fastcaps, you can get 10 of these. Yes, they only extend 9.5ft instead of 12ft. Yes they each only have a 66lb capacity instead of 150lbs. However, For most of my tasks thus far (cabinet hanging, temporary drywall brace, dust barrier holding), these have been just fine. For projects beyond those limitations, I just use 2x4s.

Just thought I'd share what works for me.

We actually bought these through Walmart for $119 delivered about the same time the 3rd party on Amazon; maybe same seller... but, once again, if you need these now, they are a decent price that may become the new low.

I did set up a future alert for $130, as I would like to have another set. With the import tariffs and ongoing domestic decline in purchasing power for the USD by 'printing' $Trillions out of thin air, it may be awhile before the Asian or domestic manufactured stuff comes down in price, if ever... Who knows, these may be $200 next year, but there is competition.

I use this trimaco kit

https://www.homedepot.com/p/TRIMA.../301645706

works very well, these are light weight poles not heavy duty, no need to reach down or climb stool to set, but for plastic sheeting work great. I like them because if you're diy'ing a big job...you likely won't get it done in a day (or week, or month or year...but i digress)....they go up and down really. Just wish i'd bought them ages ago. Clip plastic raise pole, twist.

For just holding up plastic, the HF are fine and obviously a lot cheaper at $12 each with 20% coupon... I have already lost a magnet from the Fastcap that of course, is replaceable, but are the handiest part about that brand for hanging plastic barriers.

What I have been searching for is a decent adjustable laser holder that attaches to any pole.... one that adjusts a fraction of an inch if needed. Fastcap's non-adjustable holder is alright at lower levels, but iffy on the top section tube that is smaller.

I just use a tripod for that. Doesn't go all the way up as high as one of these but I just put it on top of a surface.

No way. I'd get drunk and jack my neighbors shed 12' into the air while they are out of town.
