Shurhold Industries has introduced the Handle Mate PFD, an addition to the company’s One Handle Does It All System, which give RVers a variety of twist-on and plug-in tools to clean and polish surfaces as well as remove any scratches or dents.
Brush and mop handles can accidentally scratch fine RV finishes. The Handle Mate PFD will slip over the aluminum shaft of its telescoping and fixed length handles to protect gelcoat, clear coat, paint, chrome and vinyl graphics.
Made from soft, high-quality neoprene, Handle Mate PFD is designed to give RVers a solid, comfortable grip. The durable sleeve is easily installed and fits Shurhold's 5-foot, 6-foot and 9-foot handles. It comes with a closed cell foam insert for added flotation, if ever used on a boat or near water.
Handle Mate PFD is part of Shurhold's One Handle Does It All system. Brushes, mops, brooms, scrubbers and squeegees snap securely onto a handle.
Handle Mate PFD for Shurhold's 5-foot fixed length handle sells for $12.98, and $14.98 and $17.98 for the 6-foot and 9-foot telescoping handle, respectively. Handles start at $19.98.
