Re-Grip®, the new way to add a handle grip to tools, sports equipment and more, recently received the National Hardware Retailing Association (NHRA) Retailers’ Choice Award for innovation in manufacturing. Hardware Retailing has been handing out Retailers’ Choice Awards at the National Hardware Show® for 50 years. Each of the winners is selected from the thousands of products on display at the show. Judges are simply asked to walk the floor as they usually would and select products that they feel are unique and hold sales potential for their stores.


As a winner, Re-Grip will be featured in a special Retailers’ Choice section in the July 2016 issue of Hardware Retailing magazine.


The patented Re-Grip significantly improves upon existing options in the market. The design features an elastic cylinder with a helically spun inner coil. Easy for anyone to install, the user simply places the cylinder over a handle and then pulls the tab at the bottom to unwind the coil. As the coil unravels, the elastic grip constricts and tightly conforms to the shape of the handle.


Re-Grip is comfortable, affordable, and manufactured with UV technology that allows it to stand up to nature’s extreme elements. In addition, Re-Grip’s non-slip safety properties and ergonomic design make it a perfect solution for every household, factory, construction site, automotive facility and manufacturing plant in the world.




Re-Grip® is a division of Preval, a wholly owned subsidiary of Chicago Aerosol. Although relatively new to the marketplace, Re-Grip has an extensive network that includes some of the largest distribution channels and retail outlets in the United States and Internationally. Re-Grip® is distributed within multiple markets, including Tool & Hardware, Lawn & Garden, Industrial, Electrical, Sporting Goods, Fishing & Game/Outdoors, USG, Automotive, Nuclear & Utility.
