Catalog - The Big Foot Layout Tool

Hi, Thanks for finding  my web site!


HAVE YOU EVER NEEDED HELP LAYING OUT A PARKING LOT, BY YOURSELF ?

HAVE YOU EVER NEEDED HELP MEASURING MORE THAN 50 FEET BY YOURSELF ??

HOW DO SNAP A CHALK LINE BY YOURSELF ??

IF THE ANSWER IS YES OR ??? TO ANY OF THE ABOVE

A "BIG FOOT-WEIGHT" WILL SOLVE ALL OF THE ABOVE !!!

I know....I know...I know..Everybody has a "whatcamacallit" that works perfect. Let me ask you this... Do you have to bend over to move it ? Two hands to move it ? Is it in more than one piece ? (moving the string/tape and the weight) Can you snap a 100 ft. chalk line ? Can you pull a 300 ft. tape tight, with it ?? Can you stretch a string line for painting 5 + double row lines, with it ?? How much room does it take up in the truck/trailer. How long does take to put it together?? With a Radius Tool, 30 ft. Chain, you can layout a curved parking and snap lines as you work, by yourself. !   

NO HAMMERS ----NO NAILS ---- NO BAND AIDS----MADE IN AMERICA !!

This is the product that we're known for. "OVER 23 YRS". There's one in every US.State. It's the perfect tool for when your laying out pavement markings by yourself or wanting to increase your productivity when working in pavement layout teams. It comes with a Carabiner to attach to the all-thread to find angles and to draw circles or a radius.  It CONNECTS great with the most products listed in our other catalog sections. Maybe a Pre-Marked 200/300 ft. Stall Tape. It was designed to help "YOU" when working alone. The Big Foot Layout Tool is available by itself or can be purchased with our other tools to make "Combo's" and save you cost.

I would like to make a comparison for you .!.!. Wink The Price of Big Foot is: $125.00. If you had a layout job come up and you had to hire a person(s) to help for a couple of days @15.00 per hr. for 8 hrs. = $120.00. OK maybe not one day but after the job is done and he leaves .. maybe a good worker maybe not.. DID THEY SHOW UP FOR WORK, AS ASKED ??... Your out the money ... plus taxes, etc.. Money mouth If you had that Big Foot at $125.00, It would be around "FOR EVER" and if you take care of it and don't leave it on a job site it will last for ever. It will pay for itself in a couple of days.... depends how much you use it .. a month tops. If you work alone, you have to have something to help, it will save you time .. and you only bend over 1/2 the time. "To snap the lines".  Haven't figured that out.

The Big Foot was changed a bit in 2007 from a solid piece of steel to two, 1" x 5" x 7" steel plates. This makes it a bit larger and it weighs more too. (22lbs.) It still has rubber sole with the metal snap for attaching any item and holds it to the pavement surface. It's not painted but is covered with orange duct tape for visibility. A foam grip has been added for comfort. Extra plates can be ordered for extra weight, (11 lbs.ea.) easy to ASSEMBLE.

With The Big Foot you can attach a 300 ft. (it's ready to be attached) Pre-Marked Surveyors Tape (PMT) and it will hold it tight and straight. It will allow you to snap chalk lines at least 100 ft. You can with 2- Big Foot's, use them to hold long lines, one on each end, to paint 4 to10 or more, double row stall lines. I have pictures of two stripers, on riders, using 4 Big Foots, 2 long lines, painting 10 dlb. rows. (This is getting it done fast. (IDEA!!) With a two man crew, one can snap lines (alone) and the other ('s) can start painting.

I've talked to stripers & layout people that have used just about everything and anything to help them work alone. And NOT ONE, that has purchased a Big Foot, said that their weight was better. Read the comments!! In fact they told me that wished that they had purchased one a lot sooner. It will increase your productivity. At lest 2 times faster for moving the weight while snapping lines alone. One point, you don't have to bend over to move it... The metal snap lets you change tools easier. MOST TOOLS COME READY for hook-ups. And with the Cross/Arm, you can have the other tools with you. Check out the the combo pictures. Maybe, just maybe, you won't leave something on a job site. I fix an old tool bag to fit on the Big Foot to hold extra chalk, site plans, pencil-paper, water bottle, etc., anything is better than walking back to the truck to check out site plans.

I have a layout manual that is the way I did things. Not "THE way" but "MY way". I've been collecting ways to do things for yrs. When I started in 1969 there was "no way" to do anything. No standards. BELIEVE ME ! No stencils to buy. No books on how to paint a straight line. No book on dimensions or How to get a 60 degree angle (??). (High School Geometry..yikes!!). I've been going to the Pavement Expo's since they started and pick up something from somebody or a class "every time". The manual will help and have suggestions. If you would like a manual they come FREE on Request, with a Big Foot purchase. (A free manual with the Radius Chain Gang Tool (RCGT), ALSO.)

ALSO ATTENED THE STRIPERS ROUND TABLE.. LOTS OF QUESTIONS ANSWERED THEIR.

PRICE: The Big Foot....$125.00....25 lbs.I'm using usps "flat rate" for shipping & handling ... $15.00 (saves min. about $10.00.

Extra Weight....$25.00....12 lbs.

Big Foot Layout Tool

If you hire a part time employee for 1 or 2 days of layout, at $8.00 hr.= $128.00.(maybe $9.00=$144.00) If you buy a Big Foot @ $125, it's with you for ever, (if you take it home each day). That Employee might not even show up the next day. (??)

Some Comments from Big Foot Owners !!! (Ask Robert Lilies!!)
-------------------********************----------------------

9-22-09: I had call from a customer in Ohio and he wanted 4 Big Foot's, with the Extra Weights. I asked: "How are you going to use the 4 BIG FOOT's ?" He was doing a very large warehouse and need to stretch a string line 500 ft. on a sealed surface (slick). Extra weight on each end. He took the Big Foot's apart and added an extra plate to each. Now, each weighs 33 lbs. He did some layout and put a BIG FOOT on each end (500 ft.). After a week went by I called to see how it worked out and he explained:

He used a rider and moved the weights without getting off.

He did 122,000 Ln. ft., in 3 days, by himself. Nice "PAY-DAY"Money mouth


A SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT Surprised

Have you ever seen a "Righty" Hand Tape (?), I have some ! There 30 ft., w/lg. numbers, $10.00 ea. I've been trying to find one for 40 yrs. All hand tapes are for left handed people. If you don't know what I'm talking about.... Take a hand tape (any size) and pull out the tape, if you're right handed, the numbers are up-side-down. Now if you are left handed that's OK. If you are right handed you have to learn to mark left handed or add-subtract up-side-down. I guess we're petty good at that. If you order a Combo, any size, (if you ask) 1- FREE !!!!

Lee, a Customer from Canada: I bought last year 2- Big Foots. I love them to death! They save a lot of hassle. I would like to order 2 extra plates........ (He must pull a lot of long lines. I never had to add extra weigths to my BF's.)

Hi Bill, My name is Lloyd with "Integrity Striping LC". I have bought or ordered, well this will be my 4th Big Foot Layout Tool. You make an outstanding product !! I would like to get a couple of spools of the woven cotton string also. (new string for chalk box) If you would, please call me. Thanks, Lloyd


FROM "MO" IN CASPER WYO. I can't begin to tell you how much time I have saved since using the Big Foot. My husband was very "Skeptical" of this yesterday when we to work on a layout together, he was "truly amazed". The chain ("Radius Tool") makes angle marking a breeze and I Personally love the Pre-Marked Tape, no more hunting for numbers (!!) and being able to snap lines with "ONE" person is Great !!


ONE MORE :)..... FROM WOODY IN OKLA. I just did a truck stop job: added 200 new spaces @ 65 ft. long ea. and removed 23 spaces. I did it alone in about 18 hrs. including the layout. It would not have been possible to do it without the Big Foot, much less in 18 hrs.


ONE MORE...this is a good one for the lady/office managers/helper..etc...Smile
