Plastic grab handles??

I know it's a long shot, but you guys always seem to come up with the goods. Does anyone know anywhere in the UK I get these?

Cheers

Mike

Quick Google search for 'kayak grab handles' threw out so many I wouldn't know where to start! Guess you have to rummage through to find the style you want.

Thanks Mike,

But already tried that, when limited to a UK search most of the pages appear to be referring to the handles all ready on new boats rather than spares.

And if you refine the UK search furher by looking for the whole phrase "kayak grab handle" you get zilch.

I've sent a few emails to uk stores to see if they can get them and if not I guess I will have to import them.

Cheers

Mike

You could try Brookbank Canoes in Stockport (south Manchester). I've used them for bits like drybags etc.

They've always been quite helpful.

Sorrry - I was thinking that some of them looked like manufacturers and might have parts available. eg http://www.perception.co.uk/
