Product Description

From the Manufacturer

The Forearm Forklift lifting straps were designed in 1997 by a professional mover who is still active in the industry. After many years "on the truck" he felt compelled to invent a tool that actually eliminated the risk of floor damage. He designed them ergonomically to encourage proper lifting techniques and body mechanics. The Forearm Forklift was awarded "Best New Product of the Year" in 1999 by the Industrial Equipment News whose constituents are solely top professionals in the business. The lifting straps are also the first OSHA accepted moving tool to reduce potential injuries due to heavy and repetitive lifting.

The good: The straps make moving heavy objects much easier.
C. McEwan
In this case the same product at the store is pictured and, since I didn't do any measuring, I didn't realize this was a quality stripped product.

The forearm forklift puts the weight on your arms, and not your hands/fingers, making things so much easier to lift and carry.

The forearm forklifts work very well for lifting heavy things (washers, dryers, couches, etc) on flat surfaces. When you try to go up stairs, the person on the bottom has an easy job, and the person going up at the top should probably have arms like Rocky. For going up stairs with LARGE objects, I actually have a product called "Shoulder Dolly".

Forearm Forklifts are quicker for flat surfaces, but for going up stairs, you need something that goes over your shoulders.

Not to long ago I moved into a new home. I used the forearm forklift many times. I found it was ideal for moving big items, for example my 65" projection tv, which weighs roughly 350lbs. Without the forearm forklift it took 4 men to move, with the forearm forklift it took 2! The only downside to this product is using it to go up or downstairs with big items. It is not easy almost scary, I found it to be safer to not use the straps then pick them up after the steps.

I try to filter out the hype that sometimes ends up in reviews on this site - but the reviews on this product seemed to have a bit of truth to them so I ordered them. I am very impressed; these really do help out.

One of the biggest challenges I often have when working around the house is moving large items by myself. My wife is always willing to try and help but her will is sometimes larger than her muscles.

Now, these make it much easier for us. Last weekend, we used these to move a washer and dryer from one end of the basement to the other. No problem at all. Before using these, I would have struggled to get this done but these straps made it very easy for her to help me and we got the job done quickly and probably much more safely. It was so easy I was almost laughing.

Enough said... these lived up the hype. I'm very glad to own them.

I ordered these directly from amazon.com using amazon prime on the basis of the description, which was for 3 inch wide lifting straps.

What I got in the mail (I also uploaded two images showing this) were a pair of TWO inch lifting straps.

I am sending this back to amazon. I went to my local hardware store today and found an "as seen on TV" product with the EXACT same name ("Above All Forearm Forklift Lifting Straps") but with the dimensions listed here on the page and implied in the product video.

It looks like one of Amazon's suppliers is supplying a knock-off or inferior product to them.

What's surprising is that other reviewers have already informed amazon of this, yet the product continues to be sold here. I hope the pictures and video I've uploaded will convince amazon to fix the problem with their inventory. The reason I am such a loyal customer (12 years now!!!!) to amazon.com is their exceptional customer service!

Amazon needs to properly describe this product or stop selling it!

Watch my video and you can clearly see the differences in what I got from amazon.com in the mail and what the product should look like.

I am quite suspicious of these 'As Seen on TV' type items. However, after finding some good reviews on this site and others and the desperate need for a miracle to get heavy furniture and boxes from a ground floor to a second floor unit (no elevators), I decided to purchase these through Amazon.

***What it does well:***
I have to say that after some test runs before the move, I was really impressed with how much easier carrying heavy items was. Please note that I have weak and noodley arms so this was truly amazing. Getting items from the apartment to the truck and generally carrying items over-ground (no stairs/large steps up or down) was much much easier and saved a lot of back strain.

***Tips on using it:***
You do have to make sure that the strap is all the way up your forearm by your elbow and that your hands are up against the item for it to work properly. You may also need to switch which arm holes you are using depending on the size of the item and your height (and the height of the second carrier). Do a couple test lifts before you commit to going the full distance to make sure you're all adjusted. These are designed to be used by two-lifters working together; don't expect to be able to use these solo.

***What it didn't do well:***
We could not figure out how to get this to work on stairs at all. This was my major fear in purchasing it and ultimately we could not get them to work for this task. This does work with less-steep stairs and ramps but not steeper stairs such as those between building floors.

***Overall:***
I am very happy with how much the straps helped us move furniture over ground when they did not fit on a dolly. This did save a lot of energy and pain over manually carrying the items.

In my life I have probably written under 5 reviews. I feel I need to write one for this product because I feel they are deceiving their audience. I originally saw these at a big hardware store with the initials of HD. I thought they were really cool so I came here to Amazon and noticed they were $10 cheaper. What I discovered was that this $10 reduction in price was because the quality is HUGELY sub par to the product at HD. Let me explain...

What you see in the pictures and video are 3" width nice and thick nylon straps. What you will actually receive is 2" very flimsy nylon straps. I cannot even accurately describe how much of a quality difference there is between these 2 products. I have not used the 2" straps but I have to imagine they will dig in your arms much more so than the 3" version. This is especially true when it comes to lifting heavy objects. Even the box that the 2" straps come in have pictures of the 3" straps with the upgraded nylon. Why would they try to deceive their customers like this? Most importantly I wonder if Amazon knows what they are doing? If customers don't see these at their local retailer than they just don't know what they are missing and most likely won't complain.

I do ask myself is it deceiving that Amazon has the picture of 3" straps yet has an accurate description of 2" straps? I say "yes" because this product is also offered in stores and I think many of us come to Amazon looking for the same product with a better value. In this case the same product at the store is pictured and, since I didn't do any measuring, I didn't realize this was a quality stripped product.

So I say "buyer beware". I do plan to return this product and letting Amazon know there is a discrepancy between the pictured product and the description they showing.

The Above All Forearm Forklift Lifting and Moving Straps that are direct from the manufacturer are packaged in either a brown reshipper box with a card insert or in a plastic clam shell. We have come across knock off product packed in a box with images from the manufacturer's website. Even though the box may look real, the item inside is not the original Above All. If you received an item that does not match the detail page description, it may not be the original product and you should contact the seller of record.
