Forearm Forklift Lifting Straps are a pair of straps that are ergonomically designed to encourage proper lifting techniques and are OSHA accepted to reduce back injuries due to heavy and repetitive lifting. These straps employ leverage which makes the items being carried seem 66 percent lighter. This makes it much easier to go up and down a flight of stairs, and to turn around corners. Forearm Forklift Lifting Straps save floors from scratches, dents, scuffs and scrapes that dollies and hand trucks leave behind. They are adjustable up to 48 inches so you can easily carry small (SM), medium (MED), large (LG) and extra-large (XL) items. Forearm Forklift Lifting Straps are portable and they can conveniently be stored in a drawer, tool box, or under a truck seat. Forearm Forklift Lifting Straps are affordable, safe, ergonomically designed, adjustable, and portable.

So useful, I'll let others do the elaborating, but I've used them more times than I'd known I would when I originally purchased them.
Very handy tool when directions are followed!
We were getting ready to move and I asked my husband why did you spend the money on these? Well, when we had to move some heavy stuff and it was just my husband and myself, these things were awesome. They stay with us where ever we go. Moving mattresses - easy, easy, easy now. Can't say enough about these. If you are hesitating to buy them, DON'T, you will not regret the purchase.
I bought the forearm forklift to move out an old mattress set and move in a new set. I'm 6'3" and my wife is 5'3" and we had no issues lifting a king size mattress on flat ground. However, the forearm forklift does not work well on stairs with large objects. I can see this product working with smaller heavy pieces of furniture on stairs, but not for mattessses. I still think the forearm forklift is great and I'll use them again because they work wonders when moving heavy pieces on a level floor.
Just to be clear, this item includes both the standard "Forearm Forklift", and adds the optional shoulder harnesses that will be useful for heavier items and moving up/down stairways. Product seems to be well built with wide straps (3"). I've used these in the past and they are great! Makes heavy/strenuous items to move easy to move so long as you can keep it balanced (its not as hard as that sounds)
