2023 Best in Show Winner
Here's what the judges had to say about our Best in Show winner:
“Door Stud integrates seamlessly with all door applications, interior or exterior doors, commercial or multi-family, national or international construction.
This product eliminates the need for a two-person installation while ensuring a level and secure placement. It’s an employee-friendly tool as it bears the weight of the door unit and effortlessly moves heavy doors across multiple surfaces and holds the door securely in place. And Door Stud is a cross-functional tool that can be used for moving granite, glass or large mirrors across multiple surfaces.
The simplicity, cost, durability and ease of use of the Door Stud product made it a standout product."
