Very satisfied with updated version and will buy more. Distributor warranty replacement of original version required due to design issue affecting longevity.

Installs kind of easily but works great. I used it to shovel in the notheast and you really don't need to bend over. Fantastic product!

I got a snow shovel last year that had something similar (and with swivels) built in. The swivels broke.

This product, has no swivels. It just screws on - but that's the beauty of the thing. It screws on to ANYTHING - rake, shovel, snow shovel, push broom if you want! With its simple (but effective) UI there's few bits to mess up, so you simply have a strong, useful add-on to most any tool about the house!

I purchased this off a clearance shelf from "Wallyworld" on a whim one day. It sat around the shed for months until I used it on my pitchfork to unload and help spread six cubic yards of cypress mulch. What a back saver! It was most useful for the transfer of mulch from the trailer to the wheelbarrow and mulching was much easier this year. Adjustments, installation, and removal are all very easy thanks to the spade-head thumb screws. I have also used it on my transfer shovel loading sand and gravel off my driveway, which brings me to best uses and limitations.

It worked better on my transfer shovel than it did on my digging shovel. It would be great for snow and transfer shovels, pitchforks, and replacement grips for gas powered trimmers. I would not recommend this for rakes, or digging implements, as it will just get in the way. It is made of a tough thermoplastic and has shown it can take some abuse. I only wish I would have thought of it first. Thanks.

The lower handle on my Black and Decker Grass Hog string trimmer broke and the part has been discontinued. I tried using the trimmer without a lower handle and it proved to be a disaster because I had to bend over too far. Some Internet research turned up the Stout Backsaver Grip, but I couldn't find it in any local store despite Stout's website saying it was available. Thus, I ordered it from Amazon. Extremely easy to install and it solved my problem immediately. This would be an excellent way to add an auxiliary grip to something like a snow shovel or a rake.

I was rather dubious when I purchased it, but it was inexpensive so I figured I would give it a try. I'm glad I did.

Installation is easy. Though, a pair of pliers really helps tighten the wing-properly.

It encourage better posture while shoveling - I find that I use my back less and my arms and legs more when using it. After this most recent storm we had in the Northeast I had about 2 feet of snow to shovel. The next day I experienced no back pain like I often do after shoveling large amounts of snow.

My only complaint is that if you may need to modify your shoveling motion if you tend to twist the shovel as you move snow. I've found that the grip attachment will rotate if that action is used. But overall the product is great. Highly recommended.

Bought these handy tools for my garden cart, to keep myself from having to stoop over when pushing or pulling it around the yard. They work really well, considering they are just plastic. Seem to take the strain of heavy loads okay too. No complaints.

The backsaver tool is helpful and much easier on the back but it has several limitations:

1. The tool sits up too high from handle. It becomes a little unwieldy when you want to move a shovel around and dump load you dug up.

2. The tool would be better if there was an easier and quicker way to move it up and down the handle depending on what you want to do with it.

3. Also the tool would be better if it was easier to move around the handle. When I am using a shovel, sometimes I need to turn it over when I am double digging a garden plot. If the handle could move around it would be more user friendly.
