Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by cmill This Safety Engineer approves
My wife and I bought a new house two years ago, and had a lot of stuff to move. As a Safety Engineer that actually went to college for safety, I always try to find things that will help make things more ergonomically correct, so I purchased these just to try them out. Let me tell you, we were able to lift a refrigerator like it was a pillow! Not to mention, the way this product is designed, it makes you lift with you legs and not your back. Because they work so well, I actually purchased a few of these for our workers out in the shop to use. If you are someone that has to lift something heavy, even just once, take it from me... try these. One wrong lift and you can have a bad back forever.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FFadvocate Great for moving heavy object
Simple to use, these make moving heavy object easy.
One downside is that you need two people to use these. On the other hand, without these straps, you'd probably need more than two people to move a lot of items.
Better than using dollies on hard floors - no scratches.
Due to the design of the straps, used properly, an item should feel like it is 33% of it's true weight.
These straps work as advertised. Check out YouTube for videos (search for forearm forklift) - I did before buying and the videos demonstrate how easy these were to use.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Junior I use them all the time
My guys and I use these Forarm Forklifts all the time. Before we yank out a carpet, we've got to move the furniture off it. Before we demo say a kitchen, we got to move out the appliances. These straps work for super big to medium sized stuff real good. Dollies are great for outside, but for inside I can't afford to roll on a floor and scratch it with the wheels and just one little teeny pebble is all it takes. I like how the straps adjust. The way they work for going up stairs and they fit right in my bucket or behind the seat of my pick up. I recommend everybody to get one. Easy to use too!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jimbo Perfect for Awkward, Bulky Furniture
I had to move a china cabinet and large curio cabinet, both made of oak with lots of glass and 6'5" tall. These wide straps were perfect for this move and completely painless. Being able to carry the cabinets inches off the ground as we went through doorways and feeling in complete control of these top-heavy cabinets was great. I've never moved anything up and down stairs as easily. The length of the straps made it almost automatic to lift with your legs. Would have been worth the price just for one move!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mello Good quality and made the job easier
I guess I would say these are 5 star except the directions are a little vague. Still they made it a lot easier to carry our refrigerator out the threshold of our house and out to the garage. My boyfriend has a bad wrist and I have a bad back, so I was a little concerned before we used them, however they spared us both a lot of pain in the long run. Well worth purchasing if you are moving heavy objects.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ken53 Worked great
I needed to move a Projection TV upstairs. It weights about 182 pounds. With these straps Cris-crossed it was pretty easy. The two forearm settings came in very handy especially for the man at the top and made the move easy. It would of been a beast to move without the straps. I know they'll come in handy in the future.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Shirley Worked great for lifting a refrigerator into a truck!
I got this for someone else to use in moving a refrigerator. Two fairly small men were able to easily lift the refrigerator from the ground to the truck bed. I'm looking forward to using it whenever I need to move mattresses and smaller furniture.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Reaper Great for lifting heavy or awkward items!!
I bought this to move a brand new wall oven. The oven was listed as weighing 150lbs. My 17 year old son and I easily moved the stove using this product. I also have a history of a bad back and it never felt like I was lifting this much weight. The real key is to make sure you keep your back straight and lift with your legs. Make sure you read the instructions carefully.
When moving an item without legs, such as the oven in it's box you want to have the straps come up on the outside edges of the box to provide stability.
