    Plywood Panel Carrier Handle - Help Me Find It

    I recently saw a handle device designed to carry a panel of plywood (or I suppose drywall). It is NOT the one that attaches itself to the bottom of the panel, but instead it slips over the TOP edge of the panel and as you lift it up it clamps onto the panel. The heavier the panel, the greater the clamping pressure. Then you can heft the panel off the ground and move it around the shop. I can't remember where I saw it advertised and I am not seeing it when I google for panel carrier handles. Anyone recall seeing it advertised? Thanks.

    this was answered over at "the other place ", as a public service for those that don't check in there

    looks like it would be awkward to me , but a few over there said they had and liked it

    I figure harbor freight will have a knock off in 6 months or so

    Yup . . . I got my answer! And ordered it at:

    I'm hoping that device will save me from some trips to the chiropractor. It should also help to pull and slide panels out of my plywood rack I am building. Their website has a very well done video clip showing how it works.

    Thanks for your replies above.

    That's sweet, I bet I have carried thousands of sheets of osb up a ladder balancing the sheet in both arms while climbing up a ladder to put roof sheeting on a house or garage....that tool would be great. I think I need one.
