That's freakin' awesome! (but I'm a little shocked that the plastic straps could hold the full weight like that.)

Considering it was being lowered down the stairs, it wasn't quite the *full weight*.
Still, cool idea, even it wasn't necessary for the ~86 lbs.

It's hard to tell from the pic, but it looks like it's rigged such that the rope creates a wide angle between the two straps, so I'd guess each strap saw close to the full load.

Do you have an Appliance Guide Cert, or are you just poaching business from professional movers who have families to feed and credit hours to log?
