What are iTip Handles? Overview

“It is always good news to find a product that reduces the risk of injury and makes a task easier and quicker."

Features the key
Revolutionary rotating handle System
It completely removes the moment when the laden barrow is at mid tipping point of balance when you need to change position of grip from above to underneath.
Fit to anything in minutes
Suitable for all types of barrows, trolleys, cement mixers and wheelchairs with a handle diameter between 24mm and 32mm.
Reduce the risk of injury
It is hugely beneficial for users with mobility or dexterity issues.
Health & safety Reduce the risk of injury
Health and Safety professionals always apply the hierarchy of control when assessing risks. Often the solution for a manual handling task is to reduce the risk of injury by introducing wheelbarrows, trolleys or sack trucks into our task design. However, this introduces new ergonomic risks in the form of:
- Fixed handles with no flexibility of movement.
- Difficult grip in a fixed position.
- Need to change grip for the final movement of tipping the load – creating jarring action.
Increase the effectiveness of your controls by eliminating poor ergonomic handling of your manual handling equipment and removing likelihood of jarring injuries – you no longer need to rely on training alone.
U s e r R e v i e w s Happy customer
I bought these for my Dad at Christmas. He is remodelling their new house. He says they are great!
10 tonnes of 20mm gravel to move! Can't believe how much easier it was with these handles on the barrow. Highly recommended!
'good ergonomics, fits in the hand nicely and extra length on the handles makes it easy to control the barrow'
