The new Universal Harness was designed to highlight our Big Mouth Bubbler family, a product of the same innovation and passion for making homebrewing easier. By making it locally, our engineers were given the flexibility to customize, test and tweak every detail of the Harness' construction along the way. This journey has resulted in the toughest and most modular homebrew handler on the planet, equipped with enough strength and durability to meet all your fermentation needs. Whether lifting, transporting, sanitizing, or storing, the Harness holds tight to its passenger. The included detachable lid retention strap ensures your Big Mouth Bubbler lid stays in place during even the most intense fermentations so you can sleep better at night.
I found the harness to be good. You have to be careful to get it on so that the center of gravity is right and it does alleviate the risk of wet hands.
This is an updated version of the harness I purchased about 7 years ago.
This is the only way I would carry a glass carboy. Given the nature of the carboys and the fact that there are no published standards on their construction, it is precarious to try to carry a full carboy without the aid of the harness. The harness distributes the weigh of the carboy and allows you to carry a full load with weight evenly distributed between the two handles.
Universal Harness for Big Mouth Bubblers and Carboys
I tried to pick up and move my parboy without this harness. Very hard. With this, no problem.
Getting too old to cart these car boys around without something that makes it easier. Bit of a pain to figure out in the beginning, but extremely helpful once you do.
