Default Carrying Panels...? Thumbs Hurt...?

I'm thinking some of us have some "basal joint arthritis" and probably can't swing a sheet around like a toy like we used to.

More and more I'm having a hard time squeezing the top of a 3/4" panel and hauling it off the truck and into the shop...

A long time ago I started using these and moving into the new house reminded me that my thumbs hurt a bit more...out came the little helpers you see below. Lots of uses besides carrying sheet goods...use your imagination.

Maybe you have these already and maybe you've made up something for yourself to help...and maybe these could be helpful...

For the price, ya can't beat 'em...

But, nowadays, even with the carrier, a sheet of 3/4" or, even 1/2" drywall is too much for these old joints.
