The Pocket Troll

Thickness capacity: 1"

Editor test-drive:
I've had back surgery in the past, so I know how critical it is to lift with your legs instead of your back. With the Pocket Troll you only need to lift the sheet an inch or so to get the steel shoe under the bottom edge, then slide the sheet until it's centered. (Avoid setting a sheet down on the lip of the shoe; it took a bite out of an MDF sheet when I did this.) I had to stoop just a couple of inches and then lift with my legs, keeping my other hand on the top edge to steady it. The steel handle features a durable, grippable rubber sleeve. I'd like to see the handle angled away from the panel to avoid rubbing my knuckles. The Pocket Troll measures 29" long when extended and only 9" folded.

I think they're trying to say that the download is free, and the full color hard copy is $2.

"Check out our free $2 plan" ? Can something be free and $2?
