ProGrip Tri-Lobe Handles

Not too many decades ago I grew up in the family glass business. We didn’t follow the typical glass shop recipe of installing home windows. This is more along the lines of an automotive shop. We specialized in classic cars, muscle-cars, hot-rods, and heavy equipment. Much of these older vehicles and machinery have glass that’s installed with a rubber gasket. Hook tools like included in the Mayhew ProGrip hose pick set were used every day at our shop.
