PITTSBURGH..."Working as a welder on the shipyard, I saw many lifts experience uneven balance when the outrigger is engaged to balance the weight," said an inventor from Virginia Beach, Va. "I came up with this idea in order to stabilize and level heavy equipment so that it does not sink into the ground."

He developed the patent-pending BETTER GRIP to spread out the weight distribution of a piece of heavy equipment. This ensures that the equipment does not sink into the ground. It keeps the equipment stable and level for safe and proper operation. The invention solves the problems posed by conventional outrigger pads. It will remain in place and not shift at all once set in position. Additionally, the device is usable with a variety of equipment including a forklift or tractor lift outrigger and trailer landing gear.

The original design was submitted to the Virginia Beach office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
