The new "Shorty" Handle from Tapepro is like none of our other handles. The super short handle makes your flat box feel like a compound filled joint knife. Point it where you want to go, lean on the pressure plate and away you go.
With no moving parts it is very easy to use and lets you use your flat box in places that were impossible in the past.
The Shorty consists of a control grip, and a push plate. The grip can be be adjusted for height and angle, and it’s easy to sweep the flat box off the wall. It feels more like an extension of your hand.
Handy for confined spaces where a normal handle won’t fit, or for added control and balance when working at height – great for scaffold work or when using stilts. You’ll also find those high or low joints easier when you can get closer to your flat box.
The Shorty handle can also be used to give an “Auto Box” style assist. Simply extend the fingers of the hand on the push plate and grab the lip of the flat box radius plate. You can then squeeze the two together to push more compound out. Handy when you’re in a difficult position.
