This is a quick fit push on handle grip for the Arrarex Caravel and Vam machines. The original hard plastic grip often cracks, chips, and seemingly finds its way to a hot stove burner. We have looked long and hard for a good replacement and this Italian made 'ergostyle' grip works very well and looks good also. The plastic has a soft 'give' to it and is very simple to install over the inner rod of the original handle. Once installed the grip is the same length as the original and feels very good in the hand.
The rod is 7mm cross section and the grip is designed for 8mm (not many parts made in 7mm these days) so a wrap of the rod with tape, and force the grip over the rod...the more wraps you give the rod the tighter the grip fits....one full wrap neatly done was enough for us. This turned out to be a tidy simple solution to a vexing problem with the Caravel machines.
