The Panel Handler is a hand-fabricated block of HDPE 4" long, 1-1/2" tall, and 3/4" thick. It is designed help installers more easily carry solar panels from the staging area to the installation location, helping to eliminate injury and fatigue. It easily fits in a pocket or tool belt and is more convenient than wearing gloves.
The Panel Handler has a narrow slot on the top that engages the bottom mounting area (rolled lip) of a PV panel and holds it securely. The bottom edge is rounded to comfortably fit in your hand. It distributes the panel weight by over 1,000% from a 3/32" flat metal edge to a 1" rounded plastic grip.
We install PV panels - lots of them! That's how we know the Panel Handler is so great - we designed it to make installation a little bit easier on us. This is the cheapest PV installation tool that you will never want to lose, and won't be able to live without once you try it. Oh yeah, it's virtually indestructible!
