The Handy bar inserts into the U-shaped striker plate on your vehicle door frame. This U-shaped striker plate is one of the strongest parts of the vehicle and is designed to keep your vehicle door closed in the event of a side-impact collision. The Handybar 3 in 1 Car Aid uses this strong-point on your vehicle as a simple insertion point that creates an instant, easy to operate “support arm” for exiting the vehicle. There is a striker on each of the vehicle’s door pillars allowing the Handy bar® to be used on both driver and passenger side-doors.
One of the most important applications of the Handybar Handle is the side window breaker. In the unfortunate event that immediate escape is necessary, use the seat belt cutter and free yourself, then simply strike the center of your side window with the pointed end in a hard snapping motion. The area opening will be large enough for you to get out of your vehicle and into safety.
Just like biometric principles practiced by Olympic gymnasts, the Handy bar provides a leverage point creating what is known as a “mechanical advantage”, allowing the user to move more easily from a seated position in a vehicle to a standing position with a fraction of the typical difficulty or strain. Reduce the amount of exertion and risk of injury or accident by using a Handybar to exit your vehicle.
