The new accessory Handle Kit for the Aqua-Jaw Carry Vise by Omni Cubed adds two more handles to each carry vise. With extra handles, four installers are able to safely carry heavier tops (two installers on each side of the top). Each of the four installers has their own pair of handles for easier lifting, and even distribution of the countertop load reduces worker strain, reports the manufacturer. The comfort-grip, foam rubber handle material is UV and ozone resistant, and also will not absorb moisture. The extra handles are an inexpensive upgrade option, and are quickly and easily added to an existing pair of Aqua-Jaw Carry Vises. The Aqua-Jaw Carry Vise and accessory Handle Kit are manufactured and assembled in the U.S., and are covered by a one-year manufacturer’s limited warranty, reports Omni Cubed.
