Handybar Vechile Transfer Device - 20 November, 2001
This cast steel lever locks into the u-shaped latch on the frame of most modern car doors. Once locked into place, it provides a stable handle right where the user needs it. The Handybar is easy to insert and to remove, and can provide a great deal of assistance to people who have problems getting out of their vehicles. Go to http://www.handybar.com/ for a list of compatible vehicles, and more information. The bar can be purchased from Mobility Transfer Systems, Inc at 1-800-854-4687 for $38.00 plus $6.50 shipping and handling. When I saw this product I thought it was such a good design I bought two for family members who have trouble transferring, so you could say I am personally field testing it.
