Move Heavy Garden Pots in a Snap

PotLifter In the spring, you probably lug houseplants outside so they can enjoy the summer, don’t you? We do too. So we know just how backbreaking it can be to haul large pots outside and back in year after year.

Make heavy lifting easier with the PotLifter. Need to move that cute, potted lemon tree that’s as tall as a sixth-grader to make way for the Christmas tree? No worries! The PotLifter’s simple system allows you to wrap straps around containers 12 to 30 inches in diameter. Just fasten the buckles. The straps cinch tightly and securely as you lift.

Made of durable, high-strength polymers, the PotLifter is safe to use for moving heavy and awkward objects weighing up to 200 pounds. Use it to move landscaping stone, bags of compost, and firewood, too.
