solo installing plywood siding

I'm replacing siding on my home and I'm doing it by myself. Is there a jig or jack I could use to lift a hold the siding in place while I secure it to the studs?

A prybar, one of the flat ones, or a short board and a pivot such as a piece of 2x4 will enable you to lift the panel with the stepping action of one foot while you drive the first nail. Then it will stay while you finish.

Or a drywall jack. Short steel bar with roller and lip on front.
