Paracord Grab Handles & Paracord Goodies
 
5 Attachment(s)
Hey Everyone. I know these are probably not new to a lot of people out there but I have been making these for a little while now. Just never really branched out and tried to sell them on forums until recently. I began making them for myself and locals.

Just a little bit about me. I make these on the side, I have a full time job and just enjoy a hobby. With that said, I have had time to make these perfect.

About my products... I use 550 paracord made here in the USA, none of that chinese crap that falls apart. In my handles there are about 150 feet of cord (per 2 handles) and I use heavy duty stainless steel bow shackles to put them together. They are very strong, I use them almost every day getting in and out of the jeep. All 3 parts of each handle are made with a king cobra braid so its very strong and also looks very good.

My main sellers are the Grab Handles, but I also make and sell...

-Grab Handles 02 and Older ($45) 03 and newer ($50)
-Door Handles (CJ's, YJ's and TJ's only, Sorry JK's) ($20)
-Door Limiters (CJ's, YJ's and TJ's only, Sorry JK's) ($12.50)
-Dog Collars ($15-$25)
-Leashes ($15-$35)
-Gun Slings ($30-$50)
-Belts ($25)
-Bracelets ($5-$10)
-Paracord Grab Rings (Donuts) ($6-$10)

All prices do not include shipping. usually around $5-$6 depending on what you want. More if you buy multiple things.

I have attached some photos of things I have made. If you have any questions please let me know. I have all sorts of colors, you name it... I have it or can get it.

Turn around time will depend on what is ordered and if I have a bunch of orders in front. At the moment I am pretty caught up. The belts can take some time though. Probably at least a week as I work on it after work.

Colors... Lol. I pretty much have everything you can think of.

-Black
-Neon Orange
-Neon Pink
-Neon Green
-Neon Yellow
-Red
-Gray
-Crimson Gray & Red Camo
-Blue
-Aquatica (Blue, Green, and Yellow)
-White
-Military Tan
-OD Green
-Starburst
-Red, White, & Blue Combo
-Blue Snake
-Urban Camo
-Purple
-Woodland Camo
-Hunter Green
-Burgundy

I have more, this is just what i could come up with at the moment.

Most recent set that went out today...

Black core weave and OD green and tan on top. Looks pretty good!

Looks like you do a great job at it. Would be interested in a set of grab handles in Black and Orange(Harley owner .. lol) Can they be ordered from you on Ebay or.... how do forum members usually pay and order then from you ?

KentuckyMike 04-24-2013 02:09 PM

one other thing, how would they be installed on a roll bar is there a clasp or something to wrap the mount rings around the bar, or does the bar have to be removed to install the brab handles?

bostiguy 04-24-2013 08:27 PM

He makes them with a really nice and really strong stainless steel shackle. You can almost see it in the very first pic.
You would unscrew the shackle, wrap your roll bar portion of the handle around and then clasp the whole thing back together.
It goes on in a minute and is really strong.
I know he uses a secure website 'Etsy' Etsy - Your place to buy and sell all things handmade, vintage, and supplies to complete the transaction, it protects both the buyer and seller.
I know all this because I just got a set from him and couldn't be happier with the whole process.

Hey there. Black and Orange is no problem. I'm a Harley owner as well. Just recently actually but been looking for a while now.

They go around the bar and then slide onto the bow shackle. Similar to a D shackle where a pin unscrews and you slide them on. I make them a bit different then others, I make them so they can be removed and flipped around to make the colors opposite or if you needed to use the shackles in an emergency.

Here are some more that just went out...

I'd like to order a set of grab handles in a red/black color combo-I have a 2012 JK, if that info is needed. Also, do you have a Paypal account? If not, I'd consider, your items look good and seem to get good comments from buyers! Thanks.

Wranglin4Life 04-27-2013 04:24 PM

Pieman1963, sent you a PM

Big Sarge 04-30-2013 11:36 AM

Would you be interested in trading a set of your grab handles for one of my camo pool ball shift knobs?

hayoCT 04-30-2013 11:46 AM

I ordered a set of JK grab handles earlier this month and also could not be happier - the handles get comments from everyone who rides in the Jeep, they have proven nice and strong early on, and arrived quicker than I expected.

TASARCTIC12 05-03-2013 07:36 PM

Where in MD are you located? I just bought a commando green JK and would like some OD grab handles...

I work in Rockville. The thin blue line should be no problem at all.

Yes. Let me try and find one. If I can't find one I will take one when I get home.

blackrubi003 05-08-2013 06:58 PM

Black and Tan is no problem. Let me know and I will set it up.

KentuckyMike 05-09-2013 10:44 AM

Well it looks like USPS will dropping mine(the Black, w/orange and gray above) off today. Will post some pics after I mount them today. Thanks Phil. Considering you made the grab handles after I ordered them, 5 business days is a fast turn around. I sure wasn't expecting them so fast, that is for sure.

My lady has recently had a pretty serious back surgery, so I am sure these will make it a little easier for her riding in the Jeep and getting in and out. And knowing my money went to someone who actually worked for it, makes even sweeter. Thanks Again, much appreciated.
