Peterson Get-A-Grip Telescope Handles
Zoom  Zoom

The rugged Get-A-Grip handles were specifically designed for Meade's 12" and 14" LX200R and LX200GPS telescopes, and then redesigned to fit the entire RCX400 scope line as well. They can also be installed on the smaller LX200R and LX200GPS scopes as well as the LX200 Classic family of telescopes. The large diameter grip area is optimally angled to match the natural bend in the arm and wrist, whether lifting the scope from the floor, carrying it across a field, or mounting it on a tall equatorial mount. (12" GPS scope shown in photos).

These handles replace the handles provided on the front fork of Meade's RCX 400 scopes and on the 12" and 14" LX200R and LX200SCTs. In addition to a pair of ergonomic handles we provide detailed photo-illustrated installation instructions, mounting hardware, and hex wrenches. You must provide a small adjustable wrench or a pair of pliers.

On the RCX and on the 12" and 14" LX200R and LX200GPS scopes installation consists of removing the fork arm inside covers, removing the existing handles on the front of the forks, installing the Get-A-Grip handles using the same mounting holes, and replacing the inside covers. On 7", 8" and 10" scopes you can do the same thing except you are swapping with the rear handles - and a drill bit is provided (you provide the electric drill) so that you have the option of mounting your Get-A-Grips to the front fork if you so desire. Handle mounting hole distance is different on the LX200Classic scopes and at least one extra hole must be drilled per handle.

Pete Peterson (shown in lower photos) is rather wiry, at 5' 10" tall, 167 pounds and 64 years old. Before Get-A-Grip carrying the 12" around was a bit of a strain - now it's "no sweat."

How strong are the Get-A-Grip handles? Each of these black solid aluminum handles is conservatively rated at 200 pounds capacity.

CAUTION - Always lift with your legs and arms. NEVER lift with your back. Although the Get-A-Grip handles greatly facilitate handling of these large SCTs and ACFs, they are still heavy and PE Corp. and Rother Valley Optics assumes no liability for injury.
