Some of you may remember the thread this was in, but I'm ready to give it up. I almost took it apart, but its more useful as is..

You can now get your giant palm purchase home and not worry about snapping its "neck". It worked great getting it home. The palm dried and died later, but that was a different story. :angry:

Nevermind the fact that it was an Orania that came out of a hot and humid greenhouse into a cool coastal climate. Nevermind that!!!!!!! I said there's nothing to see here people. Go home and be with your families!

I'm glad to see you're getting rid of that monstrosity. Next time you have to transport a large palm, I've got 3 words for you: Horizontal.

I've seen in person both the devise, and the palm that was grown in the closet that was tortured on the devise. At first I thought both were photo-shopped, but in later seeing them in person they are confirmed real entities. I believe the devise is a bargain for free because it has duo purposes; it can transport future closet grown palms, or you can attach a sail, turn it on its side and use it as a flotation devise. Both purposes can be used with similar great success.
