I'm wanting to see if anyone n the nation would want to buy a pair or a whole set of these grab handles. They are made out of 550 cord and are basically unbreakable. Can be made out of any color combo.

I have never considered 550 cord unbreakable. Lol.

Only as strong as the weakest link which is 1 strand at the connection point. 550lbs. Take 225lb guy and apply full death grip and hard cornering. It may still brake.

But it probably is stronger than the plastic it replaces.

Considered how it's intended to be used, I couldn't imagine a better material for the 'oh shit!' handle. :thumbup: :lmao:

I weigh 205 and can lift myself out of the seat with one handle. So PRACTICALLY unbreakable. A single strand has 550 lb breaking strength. When woven it multiplies. They'll get the job done haha

If you have a way of getting the stock handle off, there is a plastic piece underneath it that will over everything up. You need like a dremel or something. I couldn't get it off.

For 2 just $20. If people think that's okay.

Yeah I did actually. As the title says, I am trying to gauge peoples interest in them before I start actually producing them.

I'd be in for a dark grey and yellow pair.

It looks like the hinge pins could be tapped through to separate the factory handle from its baseplate.
