In for 1 but my best guess is that this is mostly for store > truck and truck > location, especially if needing multiple sheets and don't want to wear yourself down needlessly. Actual use on site seems like it could do more harm than good.

And honestly people who use stand up carts for material like this are doing it wrong. It sits on the rack flat. It goes on your truck flat. Why would you turn it up just to turn it back (banging it in the process) when they have flat carts instead? This is good for getting the material into the house since you have to turn it to go in the door, but if youre using this inside a store, please just find the right cart instead.

I bought one of these from Woot a while back to help me get drywall to the basement, but soon realized you cant really use this to carry goods at an angle and if you bump a step it pops right out of the clamp, so didnt really work out for me.

When I hung my drywall, I just used a 2/4, but will look into one of these for future installations.

I am on the fence about this. I'm not sure I like the "T" handle design of this product versus the "U" handle design of the Gorilla Grip. It seems that the "U" design would be more comfortable and allow me to shift the position of my hand more easily. Any feedback from someone who has used both?
I have not used the "T" style but I have the "U" style. When this was on sale about a month ago, quite a few comments said they didn't like the "T" style. I know i have smaller hands and it looks VERY uncomfortable to have a piece of metal between the fingers (shown in the deal picture). Also, some of the comments here state that if going downstairs (board at an angle), it could pop out if it hits a step. The "U" style cradles the drywall. I'm sure either one would work, but I feel the "U" is better overall. Even better to help with the back and stuff is to have 2 people (but sometimes you gotta get it done on your own!).

I've used this on stairs a number of times and have found the trick to doing it is putting the clamp slightly forward or back of the center of the sheet so when you lift the drywall it follows the angle of the stairs. That way I didn't bump the stairs on my way up or down.

I got one of these about a year ago when I was doing some work on my house. I'm not a contractor so I'm not used to lugging sheets of plywood by hand. This makes loading at home depot and moving the sheets around the house a lot easier for me. I've seen some comments about the center handle, but it really hasn't been an issue for me. The handle curves around so it doesn't hit between my fingers. I'm thinking at this price I am going to order another on just to leave in the truck so I don't have to try to remember it when I go to the lumber yard.

Wish they would do material up to 1 1/2 inch....maybe they are going to introduce that and are clearing out old inventory.
Lowe's has a similar product that retails for $20. It opens up to nearly 3 inches, but I'm not sure you will ever need an opening that large.

Could you imagine using one of these tools on a job site? You'be be fired almost immediately. How difficult is it to pick up a sheet of plywood? Wear a pair of gloves with the rubbery coating on the palms and you'll have no issues.

What a gimicky waste of money this trash contraption is. When did "men" stop becoming men?
Anything that makes a job easier is good. Anyone who wants people to struggle to reinforce their idea of "manhood" probably needs to lighten up. Stop crying about the state of manhood and go hammer in some more nails using your head or your hands, or whatever is manlier than using a hammer.

Pick up a sheet of 3/4 MDF and get back to us.
