Easy-Grip Hand Tool
Diagram of the Easy-Grip Hand Tool on a garden hand rake

Doreen Greenstein's book, Easy Things to Make Things Easy, describes/shows how to make an Easy-Grip Hand Tool using a "D" ring, Velcro strap, and hot water pipe insulation. One end of the Velcro strap is fastened to the top end of the tool handle; the "D" ring is fastened to the opposite end of the tool handle; and the foam pipe insulation is then wrapped around the handle. A person's hand can be strapped onto the thickened handle by passing the Velcro strap through the "D" ring and doubling back onto itself.
