‘No more props’

A recently-developed product has emerged which is specially designed for lintel repair and replacement. Although it has the same function as a prop and masonry support, the device is called ‘no more props’.

This device is inserted into the wall similarly to a masonry support and then nailed in, holding the wall in place whilst you work. Although it eliminates the need for a number of props, the device is quite expensive and only useful for lintel work.
