Wise Buys: One-Person Panel Handlers

Gorilla Gripper

Gorilla Gripper

Thickness capacity: 3/8 -- 1-1/8"

Editor test-drive:
Gorilla Gripper grabs panels from the top edge with self-adjusting aluminum parallel jaws covered with a resilient, rubbery material. Grasping the handle and stooping to bring it to shoulder height feels natural, and that means you can't help but lift with your legs, ensuring less back strain. It also makes it easy to adjust the balance of the load without having to fully lift the sheet. Once the panel is elevated, you can easily maneuver it around corners. To carry a panel upstairs, I simply shifted the grip forward, and then to the rear for going downstairs. Although its price topped our test, I equate it to one chiropractor visit, something I, hopefully, won't have to do again.

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