Don’t ruin your house! Relocate furniture, appliances and other items without causing damage to your home or office. Hand trucks beat up stairs leaving scratches, scuffs and dents. Dollies can scrape up floors and they tend to get stuck in thresholds. Forearm Forklift Lifting Straps rise up over doorsills leaving your home undisturbed.
The Forearm Forklift lifting straps were designed in 1997 by a professional mover who is still active in the industry. After many years “on the truck” he felt compelled to invent a tool that actually eliminated the risk of floor damage.
He designed them ergonomically to encourage proper lifting techniques and body mechanics. The Forklift Forearm was awarded “Best New Product of the Year” in 1999 by the Industrial Equipment News whose constituents are solely top professionals in the business. The lifting straps are also the first OSHA accepted moving tool to reduce potential injuries due to heavy and repetitive lifting
Not to long ago I moved into a new home. I used the forearm forklift many times. I found it was ideal for moving big items, for example my 65″ projection tv, which weighs roughly 350lbs. Without the forearm forklift it took 4 men to move, with the Forearm Forklift Lifting Straps it took 2! The only downside to this product is using it to go up or downstairs with big items. It is not easy almost scary, I found it to be safer to not use the straps then pick them up after the steps
One of the biggest challenges I often have when working around the house is moving large items by myself. My wife is always willing to try and help but her will is sometimes larger than her muscles.
Now, these make it much easier for us. Last weekend, we used these to move a washer and dryer from one end of the basement to the other. No problem at all with the Forearm Forklift! Before using these, I would have struggled to get this done but these straps made it very easy for her to help me and we got the job done quickly and probably much more safely. It was so easy I was almost laughing.
