AirSHIM Helps Level And Secure A Window Frame Or Door
  AirSHIM™ (www.calculated.com; ph 800 854-8075): AirSHIM acts like a third hand when you’re working alone. And it’s a strong hand with the ability to securely hold up to 500 lbs. as you level and secure a window frame or door, for example.
  With an internal plate to hold its shape, the 10 3/4 by 5 1/4-in. tool can slip into openings as narrow as 3/32 in. and be pumped up to 3 in. to perfectly align and level a variety of things.
  Simply squeeze the bulb pump by hand or with a foot, and twist the bleeder valve to adjust the correct placement. Once leveled and held in place, the installer has both hands free to secure a window or door frame, adjust appliance wheels, or shim cabinets. Since putting it on the market, the company has heard from customers who use it for a variety of other uses, from spreading calipers when changing brakes to using it in place of a wedge for cutting down a tree.
  The AirSHIM sells for about $15 on Amazon.com.
