The Ready-Grip Handle is one of Hide-A-Hose’s most commonly used handles and is used in conjunction with the switch on your Hide-a-hose inlet valve. This handle does NOT have an on/off switch installed in the handle (For wireless handle version please see our Wireless Hide-a-Hose Ready-Grip RF Handle or Kit). Simply slide the handle onto the retractable hose (adapter included for both rapidflex and socked hoses) for a friction fit and vacuum away!
