Does Forearm Forklift Really Work?

The Forearm Forklift is comprised of two adjustable lifting straps that claim to make lifting large and heavy objects like mattresses, cabinets, washing machines and the like more convenient, at the same time sparing one’s floors from scratches and unnecessary damage. The Forearm Forklift presents itself as the perfect complement to dollies and hand trucks. Designed by a professional mover, the Forearm Forklift is designed ergonomically to encourage lifting techniques that work with the body’s wellbeing. Forearm Forklifts are best described as lifting straps that loop on either side of a piece of furniture or large appliance, then slips onto the arms of two lifters on either side. The straps are adjustable up to 48 inches and carry a weight capacity of 700 pounds per pair.

Yes - Great for things that don't fit on a dolly!

These have been a lifesaver on more than one occasion! Since we bought them, my husband and I dont have to rely on finding others to help him move heavy items. Now just the two of us can do it. Ever the skeptic, my husband now recommends that anyone that’s moving buy them.

Works great. Move what you want, when you want. The hardest part to get used to is using your hands to PUSH FORWARD. You feel like you want to hold and lift, but don’t. Just push toward the other person. Keeps the item stable and you can move anything. Make sure you tuck any extra strap in somewhere so you don’t get them caught or trip on them. You will love these things. Don’t has to wait for a man to move things!

If you are not familiar with moving heavy items or have other tools i.e. hand truck, this is a worthwhile investment in your furniture and your back!

I bought these for my husband about 7 or 8 years ago. I have been the other person to move large and heavy objects with him. I find that I AM ABLE to do it with these. Otherwise, no way could I move a washer, dryer, sofa, pool table, dressers, and a huge tv, several times. We moved these items 5 times in the last 7 years and the straps have been my lifesaver. No hurt backs, just sore forearms on the heavier stuff. I even bought my son-in law a pair I loved them so much. I will NEVER be without them. EVER. I refuse to pick up anything that hubby wants me to move, without these! We actually moved the pool table upstairs temporarily for a party, only ’cause I had these available!
