"Pinch-A-Log" Firewood Handler
The one-handed firewood gripper can handle wood from 6 to 26 in. and comes with a main carrying handle, a front “drive and release” handle, and 2 jaws. The carrying handle attaches to the main frame, which pivots to cause a closing action on the jaws.
To pick up wood, you hook the front jaw into the forward end of the log and then drive the rear jaw into the other end. The weight of the log creates the closing force to carry the log. To release the log you can use the forward handle or simply toss the wood by shifting the weight to the forward jaw, releasing the rear jaw.
“People are amazed at how well it works, saying the logs feel lighter. That’s due to the weight distribution between the 2 jaws. You’ll never have to deep bend and your hands don’t get wet or dirty,” says Considine. “You can easily move most firewood with just one hand.”
The Pinch-A-Log sells for $28.99 plus S&H.
