The Triple Gaff project is a solution to carrying heavy objects with narrow handles that cut into your fingers.

The Triple Gaff has hooks that grab narrow handles on objects to be carried, but the handle of the Triple Gaff has a large diameter to distribute the load over a larger surface area thus translating the concentrated high stress load from a narrow handle to a low stress load.

The shape is designed to be 3D printed with no support structures.

It can prevent finger pain while carrying grocery bags, garbage bags or paint cans.

Paint Can Hook

A paint can puts over 30 psi on the fingers, which is enough to cut off circulation and if carried for any length of time will become painful.
