78% of 100

These moving straps fit under the object being moved and slide over your forearms to save your back from the strain of improper lifting and save your floors from scratches caused by dragging furniture.

Now you can move objects up to 700 lbs with ease! No more bending down and creating back strain. Using the Forearm Forklift actually encourages proper lifting techniques. Ideal for moving woodworking machines and custom furniture pieces. Forearm Forklift Extensions are available to extend the length of your lifting straps by 3-1/2 feet, allowing you to move oversized objects with greater efficiency and comfort. Extensions are sold individually.

Woodworking Experience:
Our installers used to use dollies...
Our installers used to use dollies indoors, but we had the occasional scratch caused by the wheels running over a nail left on the ground. Nails bring dollies to a screeching halt. Fixing those scratches cost us money and slowed us down. Since using the ForeArm Forklift picks our cabinets up off the floor we haven't scratched another floor with wheels. We let our guys use dollies outside, but only their ForeArm Forklifts indoors. It took each of the crews 5 - 10 lifts to get used to them, but now they love'em because they're faster with them and they can go up or down a few steps with them, no problem. We should be getting the Extensions next.

I use this product all the time at work. When doing remodels and restorations, the forearm forklifts makes moving furniture without damaging a finished floor a snap. I lift fully loaded fridges on a regular basis. I have even moved a piano with theses things.

This is a very well made product, I am glad that I got it. It works exactly as advertised, and can help two people lift almost anything.

I used my Forearm Forklift for the first time when my son-in-law and I moved a larg, very heav entertainment center out of my house and into his. We couldn't believe how it simplified this difficult task. For no more than it cost, if I never use it again I will consider it a great buy.

My daughter and I just picked up the fridge and walked it out the door without any difficulty! Wouldn't move without them now!

I recently sold a solid oak entertainment center online, and the buyer, her husband and I all had reservations about being able to move it from my home onto their waiting trailer. Fortunately I had just purchased the Forearm Forklifts and we all agreed it was just in a nick of time. I won't saying moving this piece of furniture was a breeze, but it would have been virtually impossible without this amazing product. Not only did we get it onto the trailer, but the buyers asked to borrow the Forearm Forklifts so they could move the entertainment center into their home. Definitely one of the smartest purchases I've made!

These things are great
Used to be strong enough not to need these, but old age is wicked. These straps make light work of it. I highly recommend all geezers to get some.

The price is right and I recently moved a washing machine up and down the stairs with a hand truck and it was a nightmare because the stairs changed direction halfway down. We lifted it without the hand truck the remaining steps thanks to four people.

Can you use them for taking heavy furniture upstairs easily?
Jenna on Jul 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Not easily, but it's doable unless the stairs are super-steep. True, the person on the bottom feels more of the weight once it's tilted toward them, but the same is felt when carrying by hand. However, with straps is better than by hand because Forearm Forklift employs leverage so whatever you're carrying feels lighter. Either way, the straps don't replace dollies or hand trucks. In fact, sometimes it's better to move furnishings on a dolly, other times with a hand truck, other times a Forearm Forklift.
Full size slate pool table. Min 6 people. 4 for lifting. 2 stablezing what straps might help ????
Don g on Jun 18, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes they will definitely help.
