How to use Forearm Forklifts


All you have to do to use the forearm forklifts is cross the straps in the shape of an X underneath the item that you anticipate on carrying or moving around to prevent any chance of the item slipping out. Once this is done you are ready to lift and simply coordinate with your partner when to lift and when to slowly go down at the same time to prevent load shifts and equal weight distribution.
