Recently, I was told by my doc that I can't lift any more than 25 lb. I'm single, so no sig other to do the lifting.
After a several-day-long internet search, I was shocked to discover there is no such thing as a Personal Crane for lifting things like boat batteries, propane tanks, beer cases, etc.
So, I have two sticks; call them quarterstaffs, alpenstocks, hiking staffs, whatever.
I got 2 U-bolts and a small steel ring at the hardware store. I already had some rope with a hook.
I had thought of patenting this doo-dad, but I don't think you can patent 2 sticks and $5 worth of hardware.
It lifts my battery easily and I can position it precisely on my adapted suitcase cart, in my boat or in my Blazer.
Here, for anybody restricted in lifting capacity for any reason, is my "invention".
