Title : Above All Forearm Forklift Lifting and Moving Straps, Orange
ASIN : B008ASBLJI



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 Forearm Forklift 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.


Consumer Review
Good, but not great
The forearm forklifts work very well for lifting heavy things (washers, dryers, couches, etc) on flat surfaces. When you try to go up stairs, the person on the bottom has an easy job, and the person going up at the top should probably have arms like Rocky. For going up stairs with LARGE objects, I actually have a product called “Shoulder Dolly”.

Forearm Forklifts are quicker for flat surfaces, but for going up stairs, you need something that goes over your shoulders.
