Electric Grips For ATV's, Snowmobiles
Cold weather means cold hands but you can stay warm with these new electrically-heated, replacement hand grips that have built-in heating elements.
  Hot leads and ground wires from the grips wire into your vehicle's alternator or generator. They can be used on any vehicle equipped with a 12-volt power source capable of supplying 35 watts. The grips have a high-low temperature control switch.
  You use a utility knife to cut off the original grips, then use epoxy glue to install "Hot Grips".
  "They work on the same principle as an electric blanket and allow you to get by with a thinner, more comfortable glove and in some cases, no gloves at all," says Jim Hollander. "Some farmers use Hot Grips for non conventional applications such as on the control levers on skid steers, forklifts, tractors, etc."
  Hot Grips come in different lengths to fit 7/8 and 1-in. dia. handlebars. They come in black, red, blue, green, and purple. List prices range from $60 to$110 per kit, which includes two grips.
