Hey,

That truck looks vaguely familiar - now I'm wishing I had cleaned it up a little

Glad to see you made it to the site Eddie!

Eddie, just a question for you, have you done any testing with the grab handles to see what kind of forces they can withstand?

Do you mean the grab handles we manufacturer or the factory Toyota ones on the 80 series?
Ours have been tested to 500#'s each. http://www.raingler.com/merch88GrabHandles.htm
As far as the OEM ones, we do not have this data, although I am sure that it could be located in some archive. We do use an 800# rated buckle along with 1,000# rated webbing. With the design of the netting, an impact from an unsprung load would obviously be dispersed amoung all mounting straps. (yes, please read the legal disclaimer on the website concerning loads and safety if one intends to purchase any item such as this) \ I'd have to dissect a handle to see if it does have a steel band insert to get an idea of it's strength. My best educated guess is that the weakest pount would be the 800# METAL buckle that we use or possible the OEM bolt and attaching structure. (Just to illustrate, that we do not use any plastic hardware)
Likely if a loose bowling ball is left in back during a front end collision, it most likely would be fatal, Raingler net or no net.

Matt, the screws that hold those handles on are M6 x 1.0.. not so big. I would speculate that's your weak point, they'd either snap or pull out of the body before that injection molded handle breaks.

So Tim, do you think it would be worth the effort to have some brackets fabbed up that use the grab handle bolt to attach to the body (under the handle) and then have an opening in the other end to attach the cargo net strap to?

I was considering looking into that but it sounds like it would not make a difference, and it wouldn't be any stronger. I don't ever plan on anything super heavy needing to be stopped by the net so maybe it is a moot point

Makes a difference from a looks/function perspective, but you're not going to gain any strength, it's just a little screw in there. If you were fabbing something to mate to the seat belts that would be a different story. I'm using some little angle brackets from the Depot for my ghetto-net.

Mine gets the job done, but I'm definitely considering one of the nicer ones that Eddie sells for the future.


edit: and no, my DS handle isn't missing, it's right where it belongs (above the driver's door!)

Something along the lines of these in this article?
