The Gorilla Gripper is a construction materials carrier designed for use by individuals with use of one hand or upper extremity arthritis or disabilities. This device is designed to enable one person to carry heavy sheet goods such as plywood, drywall, particleboard, melamine, tempered glass and granite from the top, using only one hand. The gripper works by clamping onto the top center of the material, creating a sturdy temporary handle for the person who is carrying it. This device uses the item's weight to create leverage and allows the user to lift and move the materials with a straight back, eliminating the requirement of bending over to get under the bottom of the materials. This carrier has T6 aluminum gripper plates and special rubber gripping pads, as well as a cushioned handle.
