Deck Devil Board Straightener

Deck Devil

Board Straightener by Titan Building Products

Full disclosure, I am a little biased about this product because my company developed it.  That said, I've tried to stick to the facts and be fair in my description about this product and of all the other great board straightener tools on the market.

Below I will share the reasons why I think the Deck Devil Board Straightener offers an exceptional value compared to all the other tools - and then you can be the judge.

The Deck Devil does everything the other tools do - and much MORE! You're not limited to one task.

It uses a telescopic tube with an internal threaded rod to actuate a piston that pushes or pulls boards.  At only 4 lbs. and 15" long it also fits easily in any tool box without causing any clutter.

There is also a built-in safety mechanism to let it spin freely so you can't over torque.

Just connect it to any variable speed drill and get over 1000 lbs. of precise, controlled force.

No muscle power required!

Push or Pull The Nastiest Boards into Submission

It's secure wherever you stop it allowing you freedom to fasten the board to the joist with top down, underside or hidden fasteners.

It straightens the toughest boards with virtually no effort - Ipe, composite, pine, synthetic. Hardwood is simply no match for it.

And you get hands free simplicity, so you can work by yourself.

Its rotating head allows it to firmly grip any  nasty board and is perfect for curved fascia applications.

Its rotating head makes it perfect for pulling in stiff fascia boards - even around curved framing.

It comes with a joist adapter and extension tube for an even greater range of tasks.

  • Straightens joists in floor framing
  • Pulls rim joists and floor joists together
  • Pushes heavy T&G plywood sheathing together
  • Lifts heavy laminated beams for precise alignment
Stiff composite facsia boards or hardwood deck planking is no match for the precise controlled power of the Deck Devil.
Pulling or pushing floor joists into precise line is easy!
The joist adapter allows the Deck Devil to pull perpendicular boards together.
The joist adapter allows the Deck Devil to easily push heavy T&G sheething for a - no damage - precision fit.
The Deck Devil was the perfect solution for this situation.  No room to strike the floor sheething with a mallet.  Deck Devil to the rescue!
It's like a third hand on a job site allowing you to be more precise and in control on tricky jobs like this.
It won't damage undermount fastener track or membranes draped over the joists because it doesn't need to clamp onto joists.

No other deck board straightener tool is as versatile as the Deck Devil.

It also allows you to straighten boards where under-deck waterproofing systems are used.  This is great because the Deck Devil works from the top, so it won't damage the membrane over the joist. 

It is also lightweight, so you can use it over head to pull in crooked T&G paneling.

What I found, and you will too, is that many of the other tools can't do as many things even if you buy the  additional accessories, which can easily double the original price of the tool.  With the Deck Devil everything is included.

But as I say, you will be the judge.

So, for the Deck Devil simply does more than any other tool and with no additional back end costs.
