last winter I completed the millwork for a plastic surgeon's office in Long island. There was extensive high gloss, mdf panels throughout the hallways and reception area. The thoughts of having to install using the traditional Z clips was going to take forever, so I found star hangers products and have never looked back. The zero clip was what I used and cut the install time at least in half and made my reveals what I wanted. This is an innovative company with a great product. They were very helpful and have a great series of installation videos. These things really HOLD. In fact they can be removed but they have extreme holding strength. I was actually thinking of using them to install the cabinets but they would not guarantee that they would hold.....I think they woud but its a liability thing for the company. great product though. Z clips will still have a place in the install world but this is a great alternative. Ill try to find some pics and post.

Had a look through the website. Very innovative. I can see how it would save a lot of time installing large panel jobs, and very simple to remove if needed.

I love to see great ideas become successful! That's the american way!

Hi Jim
heres the pics of the mdf panels we hung using the star zero hanger. Its just been a great product for this type of application. This way we can build and hang the panels as drawn without worrying about the 1/4" drop using a z clip. another shop in my area is using them for a modern house that had walnut flat panel throughout. thought you would like the fact that the compressor is included in the pic!!
