That's prpbbaly fine I would still probably use it to gently drag a full carboy into place... slowly.

I actually bought a 5g glass carboy at a garage sale that was in an awesome wooden crate that seemed to be made specifically for the bottle. It's sturdy and goes about 3/4 of the way up the bottle so there is almost no chance of tipping. I wish I knew where it came from or where to get more! It also looks pretty nice in case I have to stash the carboy somewhere around the house.

i prefer glass over plastic any day! been using glass since the late 90s never an issue. though i own and use 4 beer haulers i will inspect the stitching and reinforce if needed. i use 6.5-7 gallon carboys and i don't think they will fit in a milk crate? gonna check it out.
very nice thinking outa the box...cool!

FWIW, my 6.5G fits perfectly in a milk crate with exactly zero tolerance (and I mean zero). So if the 7G is any larger in circumference, it probably wouldn't fit, but cylindrical 6.5G's do, at least in my experience.

If I dropped 6 gallons of wort on the basement floor because the hauler broke my wife would have personally driven cross-country to the manufacturers headquarters and knee-capped them

I feel better with "hands on" as well...friction ridge skin is amazing.

I just started brewing, and thought it made perfect sense to spread the weight of the carboy between the hauler and carboy handle using two people as I am a tiny dude. I did go all out and buy a whole bunch of stuff I thought Id need, tho.

I use it with every brew as well. Great invention.
