While the helm provides steadiness to a boat's captain, it's also important for the passengers to keep their balance when the craft changes direction or speed. Accon Marine's Telescoping 800 Series Grab Bar gives individuals something to hold onto when hitting the waves.
Easily mounted on center consoles or the side of a bench seat, it can be installed virtually anywhere an extra hand hold is required. Constructed from 6061 marine grade aluminum or 304 stainless steel, Accon's grab bar provides additional safety for those aboard.
Each bar features a heavy-duty, marine powder coating and solid, 316 stainless steel snap buttons that lock into place. Vinyl hand grips enable users to keep a firm grasp on the bar while the boat is moving and help prevent slips. Its welded design delivers a dependable, long-lasting performance.
Accon Marine's 800 series Telescoping Grab Bar has retail prices starting at $91.69. White powder-coated aluminum bars are in stock while the stainless steel version is made to order. Custom lengths can be made.
