back when i was in the hardware biz these were popular.  There was another one that was like a 30" long j-hook and it grabbed the sheets from underneath, but this was far superior.

The one we got seems a little better than the Gorilla...
It is bulletproof billet aluminum and opens up a lot further.

yeah that one you have is nice. im curious if the plates toward the center will slip out? if i remember the grip strength depends on the weight carried..

The grip seems perfect, tight enough to get there but gentle enough that the plates never know it.
In our case it doesn't really matter, the plate folders are corrugated chip and the "bottom" is the fold.

I used to fashion a "carrying case" out of the box the plates come in. We'd take the plates out and put them in a drawer, and once developed, put them in the box for transport to the pressroom.
