The springs extend out, which makes it easy to grip the boards to lift them, and they also have hooks on the end, so they're easy to attach. The hooks also made it easier to attach the carry strap to the springs. The springs have hooks on the end, so it's easy to attach them to the board. The boards themselves were easy to attach, and they didn't slip much at all. The only complaint we had, and it's not a big deal, is that the springs might be a little too big for the carry strap. The springs could slip off the carry strap while it's on, and you could accidentally drop the board. This wasn't a problem for us, but it can be a little annoying.

Gorilla Gripper 44010 Panel Carrier

Gorilla Gripper 44010 Panel Carrier

by Gorilla Gripper

Makes it easy for one person to lift and carry sheet goods

The Gorilla Gripper 44010 Panel Carrier is a rugged, well thought out panel carrier that we found very comfortable to wear and carry. It's particularly useful for panels that are up to 6 ft long, which could easily be too long to carry by hand. The carrier has a padded shoulder strap and waist belt that adjust to fit different-sized users, and it's comfortable enough that it can be worn all day without feeling burdensome. The included locking lever allows you to lock the carrier in place during transit, so you won't have to worry about panels sliding around or falling off. The carrier is constructed from heavy-duty, reinforced nylon, and it's reinforced with metal hardware throughout. The locking lever and handle are made of aluminum, and the carrier has a steel zipper, all of which combine to make the carrier extremely sturdy. The carrier is lightweight but durable, and it has a maximum capacity of 660 lb. The carrier's dimensions vary depending on the panel size, but we found that it fit well on our 10 ft x 30 in. panel, and we even managed to carry 2 panels of 10 ft x 30 in. with it. The carrier's locking mechanism also snaps securely into place, so even if you're carrying more than 1 panel, it won't slip or slide around. We also found that it's ideal for transporting 2 panels at once, as it sits high enough off the ground that you won't have to worry about them falling over. The carrier's reinforced handles make carrying awkward panels much easier, and its overall rugged construction makes it a good choice for carrying panels on rough or muddy terrain. We also liked the carrier's adjustable shoulder strap and waist belt, which makes it easier to carry multiple panels at once. The carrier has a limited lifetime warranty, which we found reassuring.

Plywood & Drywall Panel Carrier Gripper Handle, Single Hand Clamp Lift Tool for Wood/Glass/Plaster Board or Heavy Object without Handle, 0 to 1

LUBAN Plywood & Drywall Carrier Panel Gripper Handle

by LUBAN

Not only ideal for handing plywood panels, but also for drywall, metal sheets, glass panels, and materials that are awkwardly shaped or too long to carry or lift by just one person, a versatile panel carrier is an unique lifting and carrying tool perfect for the construction industry

This Panel Carrier works as advertised. It clamps down on any flat, solid surface (such as plywood, glass, and Formica), and holds the material tightly as you pick it up. The jaws are smooth and forgiving, so you won't have to worry about scratching or denting the material. It works well with sheets of plywood or drywall, but it's less ideal for materials like Formica, since it doesn't grip tightly enough. The handle is ergonomically designed to make carrying heavy panels easier. It comes with a short extension strap, so you can easily reach heights above your head. The Panel Carrier is also great for picking up heavy beams or objects without handles, like large washing machines or refrigerators. The handle is 9.5 inches long, so if you need a taller handle, an optional extension strap is available for $9.99.
