Forming a step immediately behind the blade of the vast majority of digging tools (e.g., shovels, spades, forks), the ToolStep makes digging easier, more efficient, and less painful to the feet. The device slides down over a straight handle less than 1 3/4" thick and "D" and "T" handles 6 1/2" wide to rest firmly at the top of the blade. Being positioned in the center of the tool, the 4" by 3 1/2" anti-slip platform allows all weight to be applied straight down, not to one side or the other. The step distributes weight over a larger area than the blade of the tool to increase digging comfort. The ToolStep is made of strong but lightweight fiberglass-reinforced nylon with UV inhibitors to prolong life. ToolStep is yellow to make it easy to find in the garden.
