A lot of handyman jobs are considered back-breaking endeavors, but who wants to break a back?

Weekend Handyman host Paul Ryan shares a couple of tips for lifting heavy weight:

  • Instead of using your back for an extremely heavy object, consider using a car jack.
  • If you have to get rid of vinyl flooring, try removing it by using a large cardboard tube. Simply roll the flooring up on the tube. This will give you much better leverage.
