Bucket handle replacement

Bucket handle replacement

The handles seem to be the weakest link in our bucket brigade.  Anna made this replacement grip out of a feed sack and tape last year, and it has held up well.

Some buckets have lost their entire handle, though.  Maybe rope replacements will do the trick?

Maybe an old garden hose?

When my bucket handles break I take some old garden hose that is no longer usable. I cut about a 10-15 inch length tube, slide it through the wire handle, reconnect the handle. Works great, waterproof and never hurts your hands.The longer the wire the longer the hose handle so it does not slip around.Can't stand small handles.I save all my old hose for everything.Good Luck.
