    Default Grab Handle

    I have a Jeep Wrangler and my wife started complaining that it was harder to get into it on the passenger side since I put a lift kit on it. So I found a grab handle that attached to the roll bar. She likes it. The kit came with two and one isn't needed on the driver's side with the steering wheel to assist. So I thought I could adapt the extra one for the rear seat in the Carbon Cub. I removed the handle from the Velcro wrap system that went around the roll bar and used some plastic ties to attach it to the overhead tube. It seems to work as well in the Cub as the Jeep.

    Maybe a little overkill with the ties but I didn't want it to break loose with someone pulling up. Anyone with structural knowledge of the CC fuselage see a problem with this?

    That tube is a typical place to grab when getting in/out, though may be out of reach of some people especially with extended gear and larger tires. I am not an engineer but I don't see anything wrong with it.

    Better than grabbing the sight gauges!
