Product Overview

The ProHandle is an ergonomically designed Back-Saver handle attachment that is added on to any straight-handled, stick tool such as a garden shovel, snow shovel, rake, mop, hoe, push broom, scrub brush, weed whacker or steam cleaner. The design helps one to work with a better, less stressful posture by reducing the need to bend which reduces the risk of back injury. 5 customized positions allow the ProHandle to work with the body’s natural movement and form and are particularly helpful for those with arthritic conditions or other joint ailments. This reduces strain and injury to lower back muscles and joints while helping the body to move and lift properly in the garden, during construction, landscaping or janitorial work, or even on a boat. No tools are required. Comfortable, large, ergonomically designed knobs allow the ProHandle to be easily attached or removed and are designed for ease of use by the gloved hand of a worker or those with arthritic conditions, particularly among the Boomer population. The ProHandle is also designed to withstand repetitive shock especially when digging in snow or in the garden. Thumbscrews compress rubber inserts tightly around the tool’s shaft ensuring that the side clamps bite in and remain in place even during the most rigorous work. The ProHandle is currently used by many government, state and city agencies such as the U.S. National Guard, U.S. Coast Guard, NYC Parks Dept., NY & NJ Board of Education & Botanical Gardens.

Hey Gary, it states on HD.com and the ProHandle packaging, that the ProHandle will fit on straight handled stick tools from 5/8" (think house mop, garden rake) to 1 1/4" such as a steam cleaner. It won't go larger because then it would be too heavy for the lighter weight tools such as the garden rake. Most tools are 3/4" to 1" so the ProHandle will fit tools a little bit smaller or larger that the Read More
Hey Gary, it states on HD.com and the ProHandle packaging, that the ProHandle will fit on straight handled stick tools from 5/8" (think house mop, garden rake) to 1 1/4" such as a steam cleaner. It won't go larger because then it would be too heavy for the lighter weight tools such as the garden rake. Most tools are 3/4" to 1" so the ProHandle will fit tools a little bit smaller or larger that the average tool. Of course, you can always go out and simply get screws a little bit longer and then that may help fit the 2" carpet wand. Give it a try. Oh, also is a great replacement handle for the weedwhacker! I have ProHandles on everything. It seems crazy not to. It sure beats taking aspirin! Read Less

Great question. I have had a wrist operation in both hands and a trigger finger operation. The ProHandle is an ergonomically designed tool that allows your body to work using the best possible form for your hands, back, legs, etc. Carpal Tunnel occurs through repetitive motion probably over years and caused by whatever it is you do on a daily basis.

Great question. I have had a wrist operation in both hands and a trigger finger operation. The ProHandle is an ergonomically designed tool that allows your body to work using the best possible form for your hands, back, legs, etc. Carpal Tunnel occurs through repetitive motion probably over years and caused by whatever it is you do on a daily basis. What I can say about my use of the ProHandle is that it takes the stress off my hands because it allows me to use my hands differently. Typically when you dig with a shovel, your hand is "under" the shovel stick so you have to "bend over" and lift using your left hand (if you are rightly). That puts a lot of pressure on your wrist "plus" you have to lift with that wrist causing more stress. The ProHandle allows you to "reverse your position" so that instead of lifting with your left hand - you push down with your right hand like a see-saw. This works perfectly and take a ton of stress off your wrist so to answer your question - does it ease carpal tunnel? It would. Plus there is no more bending required. Remember to use the 90 degree angle for digging and lifting (snow shovel) and the 45 degree angle for pushing and pulling (mop, garden hoe, push broom). Just a great all-around tool! Read Less

Ergonomic Universal Adjustable Handle Attachment is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 34.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from ProHandle is a back saver Having chronic back issues, I have been unable to shovel or rake. I have resumed both activities thanks to the ergonomic, adjustable, handle attachment. I also ordered one for my husband. I saw these on a home improvement/garden show, and is a must have!

Attached this to an (already ergonomic) snow shovel handle in a couple of minutes and went to work on the snow... wonderful! A really effective product - lessens the strain on arms & back, works exactly as advertised.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Screws too short The thumb-twist screws are too short and therefore I can not tighten it around my snow shovel which was the whole reason why I bought it. I'll have to buy some other longer screws to make it work.

I have a couple of these for my snow shovels and this product makes shoveling snow in the Midwest far easier than shoveling without it attached. I have one complaint. I was trying to break through some deep snow that had some internal ice blocks. I was striking straight down on the snow mound to break the snow block into pieces so I could shovel and throw them aside. One hand was on the Ergonomic handle grip when I struck down and the neck of the grip handle broke. My complaint is that I was not able to get a replacement part for this part of the product, even though this grip section is easily removable (and therefore easily replaceable). I was advised that the distributor did not provide any replacement parts. Since I like this product and except for this experience it has performed well, I bought another Ergonomic Universal Adjustable Handle Attachment to replace the broken grip section. Naturally, I have learned from this experience and will use the grip in this manner again. I have recommended (and I will continue to) this product to my friends and neighbors, but....I'm very disappointed that replacement parts are not available through the distributor. I'm sure I'm not the only person who snapped the handle under extreme pressure on the grip neck.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Suggested by my therapist, as I needed help due to injurd hand Because of a hand injury my therapist suggested I explore various garden tool products. I found PROHANDLE on Home Depot's website and purchased it. Have used it on my rake, hoe, broom, indoor mop and other handled work tools. I contacted the manufacturer a to its use with a shovel and pitch fork. I was told the shovel which could be used with the PROHANDLE was Home Depot's fiberglass handle shovel. Since I must use a shovel often, and my 12 year old shovel has about had it, I decided to purchase the fiberglass handle shovel. I would recommend the PROHANDLE to anyone, whether they have any physical limitations or not.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Product for Women! I bought this tool to assist me in my gardening. I am a young mother with a bad back and this makes cleaning (sweeping/mopping) and gardening enjoyable again! My neighbor has taken hold of my pro handle and I'm not sure I will ever get it back! I love my Pro Handle!
