This is something you may do with a door, or other large object that you cannot carry in a perpendicular fashion. By attaching the GRABO to the side of the item you can safely carry it beside you to its destination.Different shapes and sizes of items will need a different approach, so the GRABO is designed to give you a firm and safe hold from both angles.Lifting Capacity:Perpendicular Hold parallel lifting by Nemo GRABO vacuum Parallel Hold Suction cup lifting boxGlass 375Lbs ( 170 kg ) 265Lbs ( 120 kg )Ceramic Tiles 375Lbs ( 170 kg ) 265Lbs ( 120 kg )Metal 242Lbs ( 110 kg ) 242Lbs ( 110 kg )Plastic 220Lbs ( 100 kg ) 220Lbs ( 100 kg )Wood 220Lbs ( 100 kg ) 143Lbs ( 65 kg )Rough Slate 176Lbs ( 80 kg ) 176Lbs ( 80 kg )Rough Concrete 176Lbs ( 80 kg ) 176Lbs ( 80 kg )Dry Wall 165Lbs ( 75 kg ) 143Lbs ( 65 kg )You also need to consider the weight of what you’re lifting to use the GRABO safely. This chart provides you with the safe guidelines for carrying the main materials you will find yourself using with GRABO technology.It is also important to keep an eye on the pressure gauge you will find on the GRABO itself. This rubber protected gadget will tell you how good your suction is when it is attached to any material, this is especially useful if you are using it to carry a pane of glass.
