Stout’s BackSaver Grip®

bending that is the primary cause of back strain. Allows the legs to take
the burden off the back. Also, the perpendicular gripping position
reduces stress on the wrist, arm and shoulder. Another benefit is the
improved comfort, stability and control in working with overhead tools.
