If you have to move sheet-goods in a shop and your grip aint what it used to be, then the GG is probably your saving grace. I think it's one of those tools that help folks that can no longer muscle the sheets around. But it's only for carrying; it will lose its grip when the sheet isn't very near vertical. So while it helps carry the sheet, it won't help moving it to the bench or saw-horse; you'll still need to muscle the sheet to the vertical position.
Good idea; works as advertised; hard to incorporate in to the workflow.
Like I said in the title, it isn't versatile, but it is really good at what it does do. It is not cheap, so I would not recommend it to a DIY'er, but it's the kind of thing that as a pro, you can throw in the back of your truck and know it will eventually pay for itself.
We run a custom cabinet shop and work with heavy sheet goods like 3/4" mdf. We load our sheet goods from the
truck right on to our panel saw but even so working with these sheet goods is tough on our aging wrists and usually
one guy will work with the panel saw.
The tool works as described, however you cannot unweight the sheet at all or it will slip right out. Example -
on the first sheet I tried -3/4" MDF I wanted to shift my grip slightly on the tool to get a better
hand grip. I snapped the weight of the board up slightly to do this and the split second
that the weight of the board was gone as it "bounced" it slipped out of the gripper and dropped. No toes crushed so
I tried again, this time I lifted up quickly on the board and bounced the weight again on purpose and it slipped
right out. So moral to the story is go slow and steady, if you need to change a grip or body position -set the
board down and then lift again. We watched the video on the gorilla gripper site and if you watch he never
unweights the board, and moves very smoothly and slowly and we know why. I'm not sure about
using it on ladders or scaffolding, but I would certainly give it a try with the above comment in mind.
But now we always use the gripper to handle our sheet goods. We have had
no problem with the slick MDF slipping out of the unit as noted on other reviews. Hope this helps your decision....

This thing rocks, there's no other way to say it. I can carry sheet rock all day with this and use a fraction of the energy it would take two people to do the same work. Read morePublished 12 days ago by Dr. Fudd

Good product. It is much easier to pick up 4 x 8 panels with the Gripper. I probably should have purchased one years ago.Published 2 months ago by Mance T.
