This is the most popular Gorilla Gripper since it will grip the most commonly used sheet goods that include 3/4″ plywood, drywall, 1/4″ plywood, thin sheet metal, very thin plastic sheets and everything in between. You can carry all of those materials and more…with surprising ease!
This and all models of the Gorilla Gripper grip from the top, making it easy to position, providing wonderful leverage, permitting a full field of vision while carrying and encouraging proper and safe lifting technique. Each Gorilla Gripper has a soft-cushioned handle that serves as a lever, using the weight of the panel to create clamping force. With the non-marring rubberized gripping pads the gripping plates pivot to remain parallel, self-adjusting to the thickness of the material.
