The Problem

Our customer requested a tubular steel handle that attaches to their equipment and folds 180° for easy storage. Their current design was expensive and was not working properly. There were several challenges that needed to be solved with their new tubular handle:

  • How to attach the handle to the device
  • How to create a hinge for the handle
  • Ideally find 1 turnkey vender, that could both bend the tube and assemble the handle

Triad’s Custom Solution

Triad handled a complete redesign, bending of tubing, andassembly for this customer, creating a custom tubular handle for their application.

Their tubular handle solution included the following:

  • Reduced customer manufacturing costs
  • Custom handle redesign
  • Convenient foldaway handle for easy storage
