Although the Forearm Forklift Lifting Straps has been on the market for a few years, we were a bit skeptical when our sample arrived. Not anymore!! You get two straps of super strength webbing that encourage proper lifting (a fact that has not escaped OSHA) and somehow, manage to defy the gravitational effect on furniture, appliances, power tools and other heavy stuff. There is nothing fun about lifting or moving anything, but with the Forearm Forklift you’ll get the job done safely and effectively. Patent Number 6,039,376

We all have to move machines, think TABLE SAW, and large pieces of furniture from time to time.
These Straps make moving things easier.

•Defies gravitational effect on furniture!
•Get the job done safely
•The perfect complement to dollies and hand trucks
•Designed to encourage proper lifting
•Made of super-strength webbing
Forearm Forklift Lifting Straps
  • Consumer Reports magazine: November 2010
  • The claim
  • Forearm Forklift, "the best moving tool ever," consists of two adjustable straps that "employ leverage, making the pieces you carry feel lighter." You place the straps under a heavy object; then you and a helper position yourselves on either side, bend your knees, insert your forearms (up to the elbow) in one of three loops on the end of each strap, place your hands against the object, and lift. A video shows two women using the straps to move a washer and a stove, and two men moving a huge TV, a refrigerator, a mattress, and other stuff. Claimed weight capacity is 700 pounds.
  • The check
  • We had pairs of women try to move a bookcase and a gas range with and without the straps. Then we asked two men to do the same, plus move a refrigerator.
  • Bottom line
  • Consider arming yourself with Forearm Forklift. It can help move big, bulky items more easily and safely. But it doesn't make anyone superhuman. One of our women testers couldn't budge her side of the stove, Forklift or not. If you don't feel comfortable moving an item, don't move it.
