Beckson Manufacturing, a Bridgeport, Conn., provider of thermoplastic products, has released its new safety utility hook, a simple, inexpensive device that makes it easier to move heavy objects while preventing back injury. The hook can be useful at self-storage sites or any location where heavy objects need to be moved from one location to another such as post offices, mailrooms and warehouses.
The Beckson utility hook comes in several sizes. The three- and four-foot models are recommended for pushing and pulling trays and bins. The longer hooks in five- to eight-foot lengths are best for warehouse applications or anywhere an extended reach is needed. Users can avoid bending over or using stools and step ladders for moving objects in hard-to-reach places such as high shelves. Custom lengths are also available.
The product’s aluminum tubing is sheathed in high-strength, non-conductive plastic for safety. The finger grip provides comfortable ergonomic operation, and the sturdy hook gets a firm hold on the object. The hook may also be used as a protective club.
Goods are priced to include freight for ease of ordering and can be purchased through Becksonmfg.com.
