10-Minute Tech: Get a Grip

Originally Published in

We have a Clearsource water-filter system, and to make it easier to get a grip on it, I added a handle. I purchased a 12-inch heavy-duty barn-door handle by SmartStandard and enlarged the holes on each end of the handle to 3/8 inches. Then I removed two outer bolts that hold the filter to the housing and installed the handle using the bolts that were removed. Now the system is much easier to move around.
