S.O.L Paracord Grabhandles?

Hey guys, I just paid for a set of grab handles from this website, but I'm not sure if they're quality grab handles, much less if they're even still selling them. Regardless- I'll have to see to find out. Anyone purchased some anytime soon?

If you're curious, here's the website:

I haven't seen those in person, but I don't like how they are attached to the Velcro straps. Seems cheap and overpriced. Good para cord handles are incredibly strong but do have some stretch and are not rigid. IMHO there are better manufactured grab handles out there over para cord handles. I would only use para cord handles if you can make them yourself. Using para cord for bracelets, grab handles etc (again IMHO) is improvised "survival art" and should by DIY not mass produced. By DIY you gain a skill.

I made these this morning. Took a little under two hours, but I did have my kids running around like maniacs.
