Why would I need an EZGrip?
Today most horse owners know and understand the importance of well maintained stall mats. And every stall mat owner knows how heavy and awkward stall mats are to handle.
The inventor of the EZGrip had this problem and did some research to find out what tools could be used to get a hold of the mat to move it. Here are some common suggestions he heard:
In trying to use these tools he found shortcomings in all of them. Ordinary vice grips simply did not have enough traction unless you pinch them tight. Since they grab right on the edge of the mat they could slip loose or even worse tear a piece right out of the mat.
C-Clamps weren’t as apt to tear the mat but they were awkward to tighten and tended to slip loose. After having landed on his butt a few times with the other alternatives he wasn’t even brave enough to try the hay hook. Somehow flying to the ground with a hay hook in his hand just didn’t seem like a good idea.
Then while picking up some sheets of metal at the steel mill he got an idea. The large tool used to pickup sheets of metal just might work for his mats if he could fabricate it down small enough to be used as a hand tool.
The EZGrip Mat Mover
The keys to the success of the tool was a grip that would hold fast no matter how brittle or slippery the mat might be. He also wanted to design the tool with a material that would not rust and was durable enough for work in the barn. He settled on a glass-filled plastic for the body (the glass fiber fill adds strength and durability) and a high impact plastic (Acetal) for the lever.
After considerable time and effort he finally had a tool that would work.
