Handy New Grips
"Hydra Grips" consist of hollow steel shafts threaded on each end and covered by oil-resistant polyethylene covers that look like motorcycle handlebars. The adapter screws onto the end of the hose and the coupler. It's sold in pairs with each unit color-coded for easy identification.
"It's especially helpful for coupling and uncoupling the small hydraulic hoses used on grain carts, ammonia applicators, disks, etc.," says Neil Rowe, manufacturer. "The problem with conventional hydraulic hoses is that there's nothing to hang onto so when the hose gets dirty and oily, your hands slip off. Hydra Grip gives you much greater leverage in connecting and disconnecting hoses and keeps your hands clean."
Sells for under $50 per pair.
