HEFT in the Media

Another 'thumbs up' review of the HEFT

The Heft really is an innovative idea. What makes it so attractive is that its super easy to install, and you can use it on almost any long handled tool. Chances are after you have used it a few times you will want to order a few more so you don’t even have to bother changing it over to the tools as you need them, although its really easy to do.
