“Grab Handle” For Propane Tanks
“I’m 87 years young and got tired of lifting 40-lb. propane tanks using the built-in handle on top. It’s uncomfortable and awkward. So I made an easier-to-use handle by removing the bail from a 5-gal. plastic bucket and reshaping it to hook onto the tank handle,” says Lyle Qualley, Tekamah, Neb. “Makes it easier to carry or move the tank.”
  He straightened out both sides of the bail and bent the bottom ends into hooks that snap into slots on the tank handle.
  “The length of the bend depends on your height. I’m 5 ft. 9 in. so I bent the hook about 5 1/2 in. from the roller,” says Qualley. “The hook itself is about 1 1/2 in. long. The bail is springy so the hooks will snap right onto the slots on the tank handle. If the roller happens to be missing on the bail, a short length of rubber hose makes a good substitute.”
