Minimize Back Strain

The KAGE® Buddy Strap includes many features that make what was previously a chore, fun! A major benefit of the shovel sling and assist handle strap is that it’s universal, so you can enhance any D-handled snow shovel in 5 minutes, saving you time, money, and back strain.

Simply attach the strap to the shovel and you can sling it over your shoulder for hands-free carrying. For high-speed commercial applications, the one-handed on and off design allows for easy access. When it’s time to use the shovel, the assist handle loop of the Buddy Strap saves your back once again, providing leverage and reducing the need for bending over.

The size and flexibility of the sling and handle allows for easy stacking or storage of multiple shovels without having to remove the strap.  The durable seatbelt material resists damage and abuse, and with reinforced stitching and grommets, the heavy-duty strap won’t tear or weather. Make shoveling fun and “weightless” so you can enjoy winter again.
