Select the Packaging that fits your specific needs:

  • Retail Packaging:  Each HandleSaver is individually enclosed in a "clam shell" package with instructions.  Package can be "hung" for storage or sale.
  • No Packaging: an AwesomeTools exclusive - HandleSavers have no packaging to throw away.  Ideal for work sites where Handle Savers will be stored in bins or buckets.  And we pass the packaging savings on to you!

Mix and Match Discount Pricing: Just add each size and quantity to the shopping cart and the cart will automatically calculate your discount.

Installation hint:  It may be necessary to remove handle to put on collar.  Soaking your Handle Saver in hot water for a few minutes makes them "somewhat" more pliable and easy to slip over the handle.

    Best 'bang' for the buck!

    I searched through the 'net and found by far the best price on this Handle Saver at AwesomeTools. Shipping was immediate. The savers fit on the handle tightly - I followed the directions to heat the product in hot water and used petroleum jelly to help install it on the handle. This product is a great solution to the inevitable - when you just miss and end up causing a split in the handle just behind the sledge or ax head. I will never again use an 'unprotected' handle.

    This handle saver slid right on with no trouble. Cheaper and a lot less time consuming than replacing a handle. This tool is used by several people and the added security is nice to have.
