Hand Grip Helps Pull-Start Small Engines
Anyone with severe arthritis who has trouble gripping a pull-start handle will be interested in this new device that eliminates the need for a tight hand grip.
  The patented GripStart device works with virtually any size or style pull-start engine handle. It can be used on everything from lawn mowers to weed whackers, chainsaws, leaf blowers, generators, and so forth.
  The unit’s neoprene and nylon strap secures around your wrist, and an ergonomic metal hook rests directly in the center of your palm. The middle part of the hook has a slot in it for the rope, with room for a finger on each side. As you grab the handle with your fingers, it automatically slides into place across the hook.
  “The hook grasps the handle tight, so the only strength you need to start the engine is coming from your arm,” say co-inventors Chris Orsulak and Tom Coakley. “You don’t have to worry that the handle will slip through your fingers if your grip gives out. Once the engine is running, you just slip your hand and the GripStart away from the handle.”
  GripStart sells for $29.99 with free shipping.
