My wife and I bought a new house two years ago, and had a lot of stuff to move. As a Safety Engineer that actually went to college for safety, I always try to find things that will help make things more ergonomically correct, so I purchased these just to try them out. Let me tell you, we were able to lift a refrigerator like it was a pillow! Not to mention, the way this product is designed, it makes you lift with you legs and not your back. Because they work so well, I actually purchased a few of these for our workers out in the shop to use. If you are someone that has to lift something heavy, even just once, take it from me... try these. One wrong lift and you can have a bad back forever.
Simple to use, these make moving heavy object easy. One downside is that you need two people to use these. On the other hand, without these straps, you'd probably need more than two people to move a lot of items.
Better than using dollies on hard floors - no scratches. Due to the design of the straps, used properly, an item should feel like it is 33% of it's true weight.
These straps work as advertised. Check out YouTube for videos (search for forearm forklift) - I did before buying and the videos demonstrate how easy these were to use.
My guys and I use these Forarm Forklifts all the time. Before we yank out a carpet, we've got to move the furniture off it. Before we demo say a kitchen, we got to move out the appliances. These straps work for super big to medium sized stuff real good. Dollies are great for outside, but for inside I can't afford to roll on a floor and scratch it with the wheels and just one little teeny pebble is all it takes. I like how the straps adjust. The way they work for going up stairs and they fit right in my bucket or behind the seat of my pick up. I recommend everybody to get one. Easy to use too!
I guess I would say these are 5 star except the directions are a little vague. Still they made it a lot easier to carry our refrigerator out the threshold of our house and out to the garage. My boyfriend has a bad wrist and I have a bad back, so I was a little concerned before we used them, however they spared us both a lot of pain in the long run. Well worth purchasing if you are moving heavy objects.
Pros: Durable, Sturdy
Cons: instructions are a little confusing, no instruction on how to place under low objects
I had to move a china cabinet and large curio cabinet, both made of oak with lots of glass and 6'5" tall. These wide straps were perfect for this move and completely painless. Being able to carry the cabinets inches off the ground as we went through doorways and feeling in complete control of these top-heavy cabinets was great. I've never moved anything up and down stairs as easily. The length of the straps made it almost automatic to lift with your legs. Would have been worth the price just for one move!!
Pros: Durable, Sturdy, Nice Design, comfortable to use
I bought this to move a brand new wall oven. The oven was listed as weighing 150lbs. My 17 year old son and I easily moved the stove using this product. I also have a history of a bad back and it never felt like I was lifting this much weight. The real key is to make sure you keep your back straight and lift with your legs. Make sure you read the instructions carefully.
When moving an item without legs, such as the oven in it's box you want to have the straps come up on the outside edges of the box to provide stability.
I needed to move a Projection TV upstairs. It weights about 182 pounds. With these straps Cris-crossed it was pretty easy. The two forearm settings came in very handy especially for the man at the top and made the move easy. It would of been a beast to move without the straps. I know they'll come in handy in the future.
Was a little skeptical but decided to try them out. Wasn't disappointed. Moved a washer and dryer set with ease. Might be nicer if there was some extra padding in the forearm loops but definitely not a deal breaker. So simple you'll wish you bought them sooner.
Pros: Sturdy, Nice Design

Review 9 for 9.4 ft. L x 3 in. Moving Straps
Worked great for lifting a refrigerator into a truck!
I got this for someone else to use in moving a refrigerator. Two fairly small men were able to easily lift the refrigerator from the ground to the truck bed. I'm looking forward to using it whenever I need to move mattresses and smaller furniture.
We bought a new BIG Stainles Steel Refigerator and removed doors and hardware, we live in a bi-level house with many steps getting to the front door and then more getting to the living level, the Frig was Heavy heavy heavy even with 3-4 men trying to lift and keep from bumping and scratching the finish, it was practically impossible to get where we needed it to be until our neighbor left and returned with these Straps, i was skeptical about using them but we tried and what a great idea, we were playing with the frig moving it all around with virtually no effort at all, we talked about those amaizing Staps insted of our new Frig... every person can use them. buy them, buy them, buy them.
ForeArm forklift works for us better than we thought it would. We kept thinking about buying them cause we get older and the stuff we carry in and out of rooms before and after remodeling, paintng, demo'ing or whatever seems to get us more tired these days. We originally bought from a super well known website, but they shipped fake's that didn't seem like the ones we'd seen used by other contractors. Then, we bought the foreArm straps in your store. The straps are excellent quality, easy to figure out, have a lot of adjustment, work nice for going up stairs with dressers, washers and dryers (a little trickier with bigger friges and tall wardrobes). All in all though, the handiest tool in my toolbox for sure!!!!!
Pros: Durable, Sturdy, Good Size & Weight, Nice Design
These are a huge help for moving just about everything. I had seen them in the past and wondered if they worked all that well. Bought these before I recently moved and with 2 people you can lift some very awkward or bulky items quite easily. I like using a dolly but these work better, easier not to bump into door frames and manage staircases. Glad I bought them!
We purchased this product to assist with moving a heavy entertainment center...the product worked as advertised and I am pleased, especially with the availability and the price was attractive. We will keep this product for future moving projects!
I'm very pleased with these lifting straps. Easy to use, inexpensive and very ergo friendly. Save your back and lift with your legs. My wife and I moved a heavy king sized tempur-pedic mattress today with ease. I remember seeing two strong guys struggle with it when they brought it into my house. It's big, bulky and really is pretty heavy. these straps paid for themselves today just by the fact I didn't have to bother a neighbor to help me. More importantly, nobody got hurt and the job was done quickly.
My son and I were moving my house. He is 5'10" and goes 250 lbs. Me, well I am 64 years old, 5'3" and 160 lbs. With the straps having three different levels to use on your forearms, I was able to use the lowest level while my son used the uppermost level. We moved furniture that I had had a difficult time moving out for cleaning. It was simply amazing. The best, such minimal stress on my lower back which was fantastic and always my worry since I had fractured my lower back in 1990. This was probably the best purchase I have ever made.
Pros: Durable, Sturdy, Nice Design, adjustable to my size
I guess I have mixed feelings on this item. Quality is good. And I think it does what it is advertised to do. But it is not necessarily helpful for everything. With some items, the straps were just too awkward. Its not a product flaw...just don't expect them to work with everything. In fact, on the move we purchased them for, we ended up not using them more than we used them.
I bought these to help with back pain while moving. The straps were well built and have many adjustments which I liked at first. But only useful if you want to move one item. I tried for a full move and the weight constantly put on my forearms caused them to cramp, all the way to fingers, painfully. It had to happen while I was going down the stairs with a huge computer desk, the main reason I bought the straps in the first place. Needless to say the pain caused me to drop the desk, which in turn destroyed the desk. When using them for simple items like a stove it was easier to just lift without them. The only things that were made easy by this, were the couch and mattress. Not worth the money for such a limited use.
Cons: no adjustments while moving, not long enough
