Product Description

Color: Safety Orange

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 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 purchased two sets of Forearm Forklifts for an upcoming move. Because of the negative reviews complaining of fake product, I made sure to order "Ships from and sold by Amazon.com" so I would receive the real Forearm Forklifts. Anyway, as you can see, for some reason the fulfillment center sent me one real and one fake set of straps. (Like I wouldn't notice?)

If you order Forearm Forklifts from Amazon, even if it is "Ships from and sold by Amazon.com" and not a reseller, please check that it matches the specifications on the website (and in the video). Errors can be made when they fulfill and ship.

To Amazon's credit, they provided me a return shipping label to return the fake Forearm Forklifts with free shipping, and they are sending me another real set overnight.

I gave the product 5 stars because the real product is very well made and works great.

Well, I went and ordered these straps without reading the reviews first. This was mainly because I had used the "real" straps in the past when helping a neighbor move. Unfortunately, when these arrived, I immediately realized I had been duped. Of course, I went back and read the reviews only to find out that many other people have had the same discovery.

If you really want to see, or purchase, the real deal, go down to Home Depot or Target. There you'll find that the real ones wider, heavier and are packaged in clear plastic. They only cost a few dollars more, and are definitely worth it.

I wouldn't recommend using the pair offered here to lift more than 30 lbs. They're flimsy, light and hardly fit around your arm.

FYI: I have returned these straps to Amazon without any issues.

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.
