Don’t let go.
It’s probably a gross understatement to say that large fish tanks are a challenge to lift and move. Not only are they awkward and unwieldy, but they are also incredibly fragile. One bad bump, or even slightly imbalanced support, can shatter a panel. The more expensive the tank, the more you dread dropping it, the more your hands get sweaty, the higher the likelihood of dropping it! Thus, to avoid potential injury and the loss of a valuable tank, one should take every precaution to make this task as relaxed and safe as possible. That’s where the Wood’s Powr-Grip Hand Cup comes in. These devices basically look like huge suction cups with handles. But they are much more than that! These lightweight flat vacuum cups have a sturdy rustproof ABS handle; a red-line indicator on the plunger warns the user of significant vacuum loss. It is even supplied with its own protective carrying case. Replacement parts are available.
Two sizes are available from AlgaeBarn for rental as well as for sale!
What can Wood’s Powr-Grip Hand Cup do?
This tool can make the job of relocating a large aquarium a lot easier on your back and help ensure that your tank doesn’t end up as a pile of shattered glass. It is designed to make fast attachment on smooth, nonporous flat surfaces such as glass, metal and stone. Its flexible vacuum pad edge grips materials that may bend or flex when lifted. Its release valve lever allows for quick and complete release. Note that some environmental conditions such as high elevation can affect its performance and longevity (consult the product instructions or call technical sales at 847-675-2290 with any special concerns).
