A.N.T. Manual Tarp-Dragging Tool
Man using A.N.T to drag tarp full of leaves

The A.N.T. (Apparatus for Navigating Tarps) Manual Tarp-Dragging Tool is designed to help one move a variety of materials (e.g., leaves, brush, bulk items, logs, carcasses) with reduced effort. It's a 2-inch-wide, 10-foot-long, webbed strap, which is padded in the middle and has carabiner clips at each end. The user (1) attaches the carabiner clips to the tarp's outermost grommets, (2) runs the strap over one shoulder, across the chest, and under the opposing armpit, and (3) begins walking, the tarp and its contents being pulled along by the device.
