"Strap Carrier" Makes It Easy To Carry Plywood, Mattresses

Carrying plywood, sheetrock and any size mattress is easy with this new strap carrier invented by John Fields of Wasco, Oregon.
  The back-saving device is made of flat, tangle-free webbing material arranged in a long loop, with two colored cross straps.
  "It makes carrying large flat loads much easier and reduces the possibility of back injury and muscle strain," says Fields. "The webbing hugs both sides which helps distribute the weight evenly. You can lift a load with one hand and steady it with the other. No more bending and twisting to maneuver stairs, narrow hallways and doorways."
  Fields makes and sells the straps. One model adjusts to fit everything from a single sheet of plywood up to a 15-in. thick pillow top mattress. Sells for $19.95. Another model is designed strictly for mattresses up to 12 in. thick. It sells for $14.95.
  Fields also makes a bale carrier for handling two small square bales.
