Product Description

Product Description

The Gorilla Gripper contractor model has a gripping range from 3/8 In. to 1-1/8 In. (9.53 mm to 28.58 mm). Its the original Gorilla Gripper and the appropriate gripper when working with plywood sheets and other panels up to 1-1/8 In. thickness, such as sub-flooring and double-sheets of drywall. It is also ideal for gripping and dragging horse stall mats, wrestling mats and martial arts mats as thick as 1-1/4 In.

From the Manufacturer

The Gorilla Gripper is a unique construction tool that allows one person to lift and carry heavy sheet goods (such as plywood, drywall, particleboard, melamine, tempered glass and granite) from the top, with much less strain and greatly reduced risk of injury to the back, neck, shoulders, arms & hands! The gripper works by clamping onto the top of the material, creating a sturdy temporary handle for the person who is carrying them. It allows the user to lift and move them with a straight back, eliminating the requirement of bending over to get under the bottom, thus avoiding the torqued back and the aches and pains that are far too familiar to construction workers and do-it-yourselfers. It's made of aircraft-grade aluminum, very rugged and virtually indestructible. It is continuously self-adjusting from 3/8-inch to 1-1/8-inch. Rubber gripping pads mounted on both plates protect the surfaces of the materials from being damaged or marred. There's just nothing like the Gorilla Gripper...it works!

As I get older I'm literally "loosing my grip". The Gorilla Gripper works as advertised (except the clothes in the ad aren't required). I had a 700 square foot building to roof which included hauling approximately 30 sheets of CDX up a 14 foot ladder. My thought was to use the GG to do the job. I know some day I'll need to use it (and it works just as the add shows), but it's much faster to hoist the sheet so it's held by one hand & balanced on the shoulder, go up the ladder on to the trusses and put the sheet in place. I found it awkward to the point of dangerous trying to make the transition from the ladder to the trusses with a sheet hanging by the GG.

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.

I saw the Gorilla Gripper on TV and decided right then that I needed to have it. I waited a while hoping to find it in the stores, but never did. I finally bought it on Amazon and was so happy when it came in. I tried it out, ouch! I was sure glad I had my steel-toed shoes on. I droped the first sheet of drywall twice while carrying from the garage to the basement. I went back up to the garage to get the second sheet but this time played with the positioning, practiced lifting it smoothly, got comfortable with the new walking style, and I was good to go. I now carry plywood, tile backer board, and drywall from the utility trailer, into the garage, into the house, and into the basement all without ever having a problem. This tool is very useful and I love it!

i just discovered this tool the other day while trolling the woodworking forums, watched the video (BTW, the second video on the website is HYSTERICAL) and bought it online. i received the gripper within three days, went in the garage, clamped it on top of a sheet of MDF and started waltzing around with it as a smile crept over my face. anyone who has to deal with sheet goods (drywall, melamine, plywood, tile backerboard) on a hobbyist, DIY'er or professional basis should seriously consider this purchase as an insurance against: smashed fingers/toes and strained backs. i eagerly look forward to the next time i go to home depot and have to pick up and load 10 sheets of melamine by myself!

My previous review of this tool was quite negative but I am happy to report that the manufacturer has completely re-designed it with substantial improvements. It is recommended for anyone who needs to move sheet materials (plywood, drywall, etc.) around. The gripper is not designed for materials below 3/8" thickness without putting a pad (rubber or similar) into the jaws.

I bought this when a broken hand turned me into a one-handed carpenter. I would definitely recommend going to the manufacturer's website and watching the video. I didn't find it quite as hilarious as other posters, but that's beside the point. What it does in that video, it does in real life. If you will be doing those sorts of actions, this tool will be a real help. The ability to grip a sheet of 3/4 ply at the top, in the center, and carry it on your shoulder without twisting, bending or straining, walking normally, is a real nice thing, especially if you need to get a bunch of ply from one end of a jobsite to another through doorways. No more stooping. That said, it's pretty useless going up stairs.

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.

I read over a lot of reviews, especially the 1 - 2 star ones and decided to give this a try anyway.
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....
