Invisi-Back Drywall Crack Repair Backing Plate


About Invisi-Back: I made an offer to any of our members that I would send out a free sample of the product in a "Six-Pack" to personally try out this new product on a job, followed by a posted product revue. So far; I have sent the "Six-Pack" to Cazna, Kiwiman and Precision Taping; I still have 20 packages left to use before I receive another sample shipment. So, these free sample packages will go out to the the first 20 of you who send me your mailing address. (Email (drifter2739@yahoo.com) My intention and hope is that this new thread will prove to be both informative and useful to the business success of any followers. Best wishes to all, and God's Blessings. Drifter.
UPDATE ON OFFER TAKERS:
Cazna, Kiwiman and Precision Taping have been sent a "Six-Pack. Mudshark and 4 others (No stage names given) will be shipped today. Also; Kiwiman has asked me where Invisi-Back can be purchased at this time. Prest-On Drywall Fasteners, in Hot Springs, Arkansas, www.Prest-On.com is manufacturing and marketing Invisi-Back, since it is a strong compliment to their other products. Prest-On's most popular product is their Insta-Back Drywall Clip; used for joining one or more drywall panels during construction, and for making repairs of wallboard damages. You may have seen Insta-Back at both The Home Depot and Lowe's; perhaps you have used it on previous jobs. My latest information is that The Home Depot has contracted to produce a Training Video on Invisi-Back, which will soon appear on their Website, along with retail pricing information. Invisi-Back will then be available on their shelves by that time. In the meantime; Invisi-Back can be purchased directly from Prest-On Drywall Fasteners at (800) 323-1813.

Re: Invisi-Back Drywall Crack Repair Backing Plate


What a guy! Handing out a freebie to a bunch of hungry drywall finishers! I emailed.
They sound very interesting and useful.
Very willing to give them a try!

OK Kiwiman: It may take a few more days for you to receive your package of Invisi-Back to try. I did put a brochure in the box; as to how you can order them. Meanwhile; Invisi-Back is being manufactured and marketed by Prest-On Drywall Fasteners. You may have used their Insta-Back Clips for joining one or more drywall panels during installation, or for making hole repairs. The Insta-Back Clips have been on the shelves at The Home Depot for some time now; The Invisi-Back will soon be appearing there as well. You can now order Invisi-Back from Prest-On; at (800) 323-1813. Ask for the pricing for a case of 200 plus a few extra Applicator Tools. I will post the ordering on DWT. Thanks for your interest.

That's right Nathan! Another problem is that each time I try to log on, I get a message that my password is wrong. So I have to punch the radio-button "forgot my password" to heve them Email a reset password. Does anyone else have that problem. How annoying that is indeed!

Re: Invisi-Back Drywall Crack Repair Backing Plate


Got mine today, Thanks.

Great package you have put together Drifter, Very good with lots of info, I have to say im really surprised how thick the gauge of the steel is, These are very strong and wont bend easy, I imagined they were a lot thinner. Looks good, Looking forward to trying them but even before i use them they certainly look they will work and hold well under the right conditions. Great idea and thanks for joining DWT and letting us try them out

The six you mailed to me came in the mail today. Looking forward to trying them. I can see other uses for them, too. Like when someone moves an outlet. Thanks, Robert!

Re: Invisi-Back Drywall Crack Repair Backing Plate


You know when a homeowner hangs his own rock and he had the rock delivered way too long ago and left it flat on dunnage and the bottom sheets get curvey?? Just put one of these guys in there and it will pull both sheets where they are supposed to be and your flat is flat.

Tim: That's correct. Invisi-Back can also be used to make repairs; in many situations like when someone moves an outlet, when a cut-out has been made to create an access panel to plumbing or whatever, and when you need to make repairs of impact damages; such as a hole made by a doorknob or other such object; like when moving furniture, etc. Here's how to do it:
1) Cut a duplicate replacement piece, (square or rectangular) cut slightly smaller than the cut-out section.
2) Place and hold the larger half of the Invisi-Back against the underside of the cut edge; with its Tabs pointed outward and its Hinge Loops held in line against the cut-out edge.
3) While holding Invisi-Back in place; blind-fasten a 1" drywall screw through the panel and into its perforations at about the mid-point, and 3'4 Inch from the cut-out edge.
4) Tighten down the screw to flush it with the surface; dimpled only.
5) Place and fasten other Invisi-Backs around each edge of the cut-out as needed.
6) Insert the replacement piece into the cut-out, over the installed Invisi-Backs, making certain it is even with the surface.
7) Blind-fasten the replacement piece with additional drywall screws installed through its edges, in-line and across from the cut-out edge at about 3/4 of an Inch. Tighten down and dimple each screw. The result should be a strong repair that is free of bumps, ridges or crowns; to assure a smooth surface for refinishing with tape & float, match-texture and paint.

I will put together a photographic demonstration for you and DWT Members in a few days. Look for it to appear in my next Thread Installment.

You are right again Tim! I can see you are thinking. Invisi-Back creates an artificial backing without attachment to nearby studs or joists. Without back-cutting to the nearest stud; insert Invisi-Back into the seam of the panel joint, and it will pull and draw both panel edges up-tight and evenly flush with one another; providing strong peripheral support from the inside-out, left to right and up to down. That is what Invisi-Back is all about. "It's all that it's cracked up to be." That quote is our new slogan-mark. Thanks a bunch for your helpful comment.

Re: Invisi-Back Drywall Crack Repair Backing Plate


I got to try the invisi-back the other day, I had a deep (and long) stone scratch in the centre of a 13mm ceiling sheet. I "V" cut along it and it ended up with a lot of flex when I pushed on the sheet, so I cut a wee slot in the crack and installed the invisi-back, it worked perfectly , I wish I had these things a long time ago, I'll always carry them now.
Thanks Rob, a brilliant idea you got there
