Snow shoveling got you down? Get back up with backEZ!


Winter is here and that means it's time to think about shoveling snow..or for some of us actually doing it now! Shoveling can be a back breaking experience if you're using a straight pole shovel. I'm here to say "Break your back no more, no matter the type of pole with backEZ".

backEZ is an ergonomically designed auxiliary handle that is "added on" to any stick tool. Attaching the backEZ instantly converts any old and awkward shovel (or many other tools) into an ergonomically correct powerhouse of efficiency, safety and comfort. Adjust along the tool shaft to fit your height and arm length and your ready to go. Utilizing your hands with both wrist positions has proven to reduce strain and carpel tunnel stress.

We received two backEZ attachments and have already put them to good use several times this past week. We had 8" of snow dumped on us over a 24 hour period and the sidewalks had to be shoveled several times. The backEZ made shoveling so much easier and less back breaking. I was amazed that when I was done my back didn't hurt like usual from the awkward positing of holding a shovel to push and throw snow. The best part is it's totally removable so once winter is over I can more them to yard rakes or other long handle tools to utilize them year round!



The backEZ ergonomic tool grip easily attaches to all long handled tools and equipment; rakes, shovels, hoes, snow shovels, power washers and even painting poles and vacuums. Instantly transforming them into ergonomically beneficial tools designed to give the user dramatic back pain relief and safety benefits. It can be placed anywhere along or around stick tool for maximum comfort. Strong as steel, glass fiber reinforced engineering resin, yet weighs only 7.3 oz.

With all the snow we've had lately I've been outside a lot more than usual causing my hands to feel the effects of the cold temperatures (even with gloves on). And I'm not a fan of dry scratchy hands. That's why I have PURELL® HEALTHY SOAP next to both the kitchen and bathroom sinks right now. And I have bottles of their sanitizers through out the house for using when a full hand wash isn't necessary. And I'm happy to say my hands haven't gotten scratchy or cracked at all this winter!
