Or just DYI something similar to this with your scrap wood laying around - it work quite good although you have to use the other hand to hold onto the top of the sheet; there's no risk of the carrier accidentally release the plywood though.

Check your local Lowe's. Mine has the Gorilla Gripper for $15.98. Looks like they're not stocking in anymore in a lot of stores. I have a brickseek subscription and most stores within 100 miles of me are out of stock.

I buy my boyfriend, Ralphy, tons of tools, but what does this thing do? How does it help you carry wood? Ralphy is really, really short. Would this be a good tool for him?

This video review made me re-think this purchase in favor of the Stanely panel carrier at half the price. Just based on where this puts the weight it doesn't seem as comfortable.

Unnecessary and unsolicited details are usually fishy, but on the off chance this is a legit question... No, these would not work well under a minimum height as it causes you to bend your arm at the elbow and have your carry hand up by your shoulder. If that height isn't more than 4 feet, or at least a little taller than what you are carrying, you are going to have to raise your hand higher to clear the ground and that will put even more stress on your muscles.

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?
I'm alerting the archaeology department at my local university. They'll be fascinated by studying neanderthals in their natural habitat, a construction site.

Can only imagine your comments in flashlight threads calling all the men out for not wrapping strands of cloth around sticks and soaking it in oil.

It looks like a good alternate. Showing $19.98 for me. I would rather go with the metal one due to durability.

Yup, that's my luck... now that I literally just got done lugging 9 sheets of 3/4 OSB, also known as splinterboard, home last week I find this. Excuse me, I have 9 splinters to go pull out of my hands. When I'm done I bet I find a SD on tweezers lol🙄

This is intended mainly for carrying sheet goods around, not for installation.

Except for ceilings, which is a whole 'nother can of worms, I don't think that I've ever installed a sheet of drywall that wasn't either resting on floor shims or on top of the sheet below it.

That's what I was thinking, but thought I saw someone comment that it's a must for installation
