The Handybar gives you a strong handle to lean on to assist you in getting in and out of your vehicle. The Handybar inserts into the U-shaped striker plate on your vehicle door frame. The striker plate is one of the strongest parts of the vehicle and is designed to keep your vehicle door closed in the event of a side-impact collision. There is a striker on each of the vehicle's door pillars allowing the Handybar to be used on both driver and passenger side-doors.
In the event of an emergency the Handybar also aids you in escaping your vehicle. To break out your side window, strike center of side window with pointed end, using a hard snapping motion. To get out of a seatbelt that will not release, remove slack from seatbelt, insert belt into cutter slot, pull firmly across body.
The Handybar works on the vast majority of North American and Japanese vehicles.
The Handybar is suitable for individuals weighing up to 300 lbs.
