The product info didn't give any idea of the strength rating of this handle so I explained to the sales person (who was very courteous) that i needed a handle to allow a large swimmer to hoist themselves over the swim grid and into the boat. This handle would be dangerous in that application. it is no where near the strength required for an adult to access the grid. the cost of shipping etc was more than the value of the handle so it seems i must just garbage the handle. other expereinces with iboats (boat cover) have been great. this is small but annoying.
