This may be a dumb question but better to ask then do things wrong. With the carboy handles should you attach them in between the two ridges on the neck or under the second ridge?????
Stan welcome to the best forum. Please go to the introduction thread and let us know who you are and what you're working on. Keep the questions coming in. We will be happy to help you out with anything you're working on.can you lift full carboys with these handles. Or are they just to help
when cleaning. they do get pretty slippery.
line up the straps and they can't slip enough to ever lose a 5 gallon carboy.I bought a brew hauler. That thing is really nice. I do get worried about a strap slipping though. If they weren't so pricey I'd order one for each carboy.
I use the carboy handle while washing the carboys out. They do get very slippery.
I use the handles exclusivley on all carboys as they are cheaper. As far as drying goes what I found using a 6" pvc coupling found at Lowes works perfect and is more stable. I drilled a few 1/2" holes in it for air flow and it easily excepts bottles with handles.I agree with XANXER82. The brew haulers are really nice. I have one for each carboy I own. I took my carboy handles off completely. If you have a carboy drying stand, the carboy handle gets in the way, so you can't use the stand at all.
