    I saw 08yoter's grab bars and decided to make my own but with a different knot pattern and with some 5/16" nuts in them for some added style. I posted my creation in "What Have You Done To Your Tacoma Today?" and its grabbed a little attention.

    Here's a few pictures of what I made for my own rig. 20150617_161139_zpsn4tm8ax8_34dcd72f43428f71a30859eb0ed6e8f670d7aa1a.jpg 20150618_195550_zpsclp8gsbx_95968ec0ec9afb12ca5f211a551e3071894c473a.jpg 20150618_195605_zpsg1ixho9f_7364720b134a99598eb0bb46dbd599afef60765e.jpg

    I also like that this style is flexible

    25$ Shipped for a pair. Go here Paracord and choose what color you want. The hex nuts I can do in stainless steel. The place where I get the black nylon nuts is out-of-stock, and not sure when they'll be getting more so I can only do steel until they get more. I also upgraded the carabiners to stronger ones (see next post) as these cheap black ones aren't up to my standards.

    SORRY BUT I AM NO LONGER MAKING THESE HANDLES ANYMORE. I WAS PRACTICALLY SELLING THEM AT THE COST OF THE MATERIALS AND SHIPPING. IF I GET A LOT MORE INTERESTED PEOPLE THEN I MAY MAKE THEM AGAIN.
