Liftdini is a portable hand-held tool that claims to take the strain out of lifting and moving heavy objects. They say you can use it to pick up almost anything under 50 lbs using just one finger.
Liftdini is sold by Telebrands, a direct marketing firm that has been in business since 1983. You may not know the name, but you know the “As Seen On TV” logo, which they invented. Telebrands is accredited by the BBB and currently has an A- rating. This is because even though they have had many complaints about products over the years, most have been closed (the company lost points because of the length of time taken to resolve disputes.)
How LIftdini Works
Liftdini looks like a giant set of fireplace tongs. It has a red/orange handle at the top and a pair of flat grips on the bottom. To use Liftdini, they say to gently push the contoured handle to open it – the Liftdini is now ready to grip.
Lower Liftdini around any item 50 lbs or less that is on the ground and you don’t want to bend over and pick up; use the handle to push the tongs closed against the object. They say Liftdini’s powerful non-slip claws will grip it tightly. They say this includes round or unconventionally-shaped objects, up to 16 inches wide. They state Liftdini uses the weight of the object to create a tight grip.
Then, they say to grab by the handle and lift – the object, box, or package is now easily transported. They claim you can even carry items with just one finger under the crook of the handle. Some of the items they suggest you can move are dog food bags, flower pots, soccer balls, cinder blocks, propane tanks, or moving boxes. They add you will save time and effort while gardening.
They state Liftdini is made of heavy aluminum, weighs just 2 lbs, and is built to last. They tout its compact design makes it easy to store and is ready whenever you need it. They claim using Liftdini is much better than bending over and possibly straining or injuring your back. They say you will be able to lift practically anything comfortably, almost like magic.

Each Liftdini Order includes:
- Additional Liftdini “free” (extra S & H)
Liftdini Pricing, Shipping, and Returns
They state you can have your very own Liftdini for $19.99 plus $7.99 S & H for a total of $27.98. At the time of your order, they give you an option of adding a “free” Liftdini but they tack on an additional $9.99 handling. Telbrands says your Liftdini will appear within 3- 6 weeks. With all Telebrands products, you have 30 days to try them and if you don’t like you can return for a refund. However, they do not pay for return shipping, nor do they refund the initial S & H fees. In addition, you must provide a “detailed explanation” in writing why you did not like it.
