Gorilla Gripper Panel Gripping/Lifting Tool
Gorilla Gripper Panel Gripping/Lifting Tool

The Gorilla Gripper Panel Gripping/Lifting Tool is an easier and safer way for one to lift and carry large, bulky sheets of material (e.g., plywood, drywall, particle board, melamine, sheet metal), reducing the chances both of dropping them and injuring fingers, hands, wrists, and back. The tool slips over the center top edge of panels 3/8- to 1 1/8-inches in thickness. When the handle is lifted, the two gripping plates press against both sides of the panel, holding it tight. The heavier the panel, the tighter the grip becomes. With arm fully bent at the elbow and hand holding the handle, the sheet is lifted and carried as it rests against one's upper arm.
