Handle grips help tool users comply with OSHA recommendations

March 15, 2012

Re-Grip Inc. offers handle grips to help minimize safety risk and downtime while adhering to OSHA recommendations for pneumatic tools. Made of durable elastic material to provide mechanical and environmental protection while increasing user comfort, the grips help reduce muscle fatigue and increase control.

The grips fit any handle that is cylindrical or semicylindrical. Applications include hammers and sledges, levers, wrenches, and jackhammers and other pneumatic tools. The elastic grip is held extended by an inner coil, forming a tube that fits over the handle. The user pulls a tab at the bottom to unwind the coil, allowing the elastic grip to constrict around the handle.

The grips are available in three sizes, with clearances of 1.3, 1.6, and 2.1 in. Standard length is 7 in., but custom lengths are available.
