V24858 - Forearm Forklift Moving Straps w/ Extension Strap & Gloves
do not pay for movers again
girls, you can leave the men at the gulf course, these straps aren't no joke. they make moving anything easy as pie. forget paying for movers any more, just get your girlfriend and move whatever yourself.
These have been helpful in moving appliances. Makes a job of moving things into an easier chore. I would recommend these as they do come in handy and the price point is good.
More than worth the money!
I bought this item for a large heavy entertainment center I had in my living room with a 36in tv, 600 vhs tapes, and a audio-video system for four years and couldn't move it without fear of breaking it apart and not wanting to take everything down. I needed to move the unit and with this and my buddy it was a cinch!
If used properly this item is a great back saver! Running delivery depts. for 2 different major retailers we used these 99% of the time. This will give you more stability with an item than using a dolly, especially moving up and down stairs. I have used these on all large items except fridges (used appliance dolly) and I can tell you from first hand for many years this is excellent. Again I stress please read the directions because if used improperly I can see how they might not work.
Don't waste your money
To late to return this item or believe me it would go back !!! Purchased in anticipation of moving washer and dryer as well as King Mattress. They were useless for the men moving furniture for me as well. Please trust me, a pure waste of hard earned money !!
be careful & read instructions...

this is a great item, JUST be sure to follow the directions so that you use this item properly...
you do not want to drop a refrig, dryer or washer etc. on your foot or your co-mover's foot! You may also damage whatever you drop!
Makes the old Laurel and Hardy films come to mind, where they move a piano up a LONG set of steps, only to find they could have driven around to the exact spot where the piano was to go.
I think they would have LOVED this item! Oh, the piano gets delivered the worse for wear.
You must use common sense with this tool, as with any other tool
It has helped us out quite a bit, and being my spouse and I are now over 50, we have found we cannot move and lift things like we did in our 20's etc.
Works as Advertised
I used these with my daughter, we moved a entertainment center, misc. bedroom furniture and big screen TV with little or no problem. We went up and down one flight of stairs on the way out, up two flights on the way in. Works exactly as shown, takes the bending and struggling out of moving.
What a Great Invention!
My fiance & I inherited a solid oak armoire that we have been keeping in the garage until we could find someone to help us move it into the house. I saw this item advertised before Christmas and decided to give it a try.
Well let me tell you this product works exactly as it was advertised. We were able to carry this solid oak armoire through the garage and up the stairs into the house. Needless to say my fiance was dumbfounded. He could not believe it and honestly it baffled me a bit because I'm only 5'2" and was able to lift this heavy piece of furniture with ease and carry it up stairs no less.
What a great invention! Thanks QVC for carrying this product!!
We hired professional movers to move a piano, my husband showed them the straps - they loved them. We have used them to move numerous things - washers, dryers, and entertainment centers. We have even used them to pull out a stuck tractor when he was on the tractor driving. I will tell you they did break when he tried to pull the tractor out a second time by himself. We are getting ready to move so I am ordering several pairs. They are backsavers.
maybe my armoire was heavier than QVC's?
I have 2 solid wood armoires that my daughter and I were unable to move with these. Sorry folks, but I have trouble believing in this product when it doesn't work for me. I just watched the video again and we were not using it incorrectly. We finally put throw rugs under them and scooted them to the room we wanted.
These Saved Us!
My husband and I moved ourselves with these. My husband laughed when he saw these and thought they were a gimmick. He now respects the straps! Although I'm strong, I am not strong enough to move HUGE pieces like fitness equipment, armoires, mattresses, around tight corners, upstairs, etc. Not only did these help us get a grip on awkardly shaped items, but they helped me become pretty close to a super hero moving woman. This small purchase helped save us thousands of dollars in a state to state move. Thank you QVC for this terrific item!!
movers want them!
Highest praise--movers asked my husband where he got them! I took a risk buying these for my husband--I was worried it just going to be one of those useless contraptions that wives are sucked into buying. These saved his back and I am so happy I was able to give him something he finds so useful and valuable.
