Gripper door or board carriers Before using a gripper door and board carrier, make sure it’s the right size for the job. All sizes are suitable for use with weights up to about 90kg, as long as you can carry that much weight. There are different size ranges for varying thicknesses of material.

Step 1 – Position carrier

Position the carrier on the edge of the sheet material. Usually you will want to keep the carrier in the middle of an edge, so the sheet will balance. For lifting, the carrier needs to be on the top edge of the material; for pulling horizontally, it should be on the side edge.
