Constructing Your Own T-Handle

Head to any hardware store or Home Depot and go to the plumbing aisle and find:

  • One 3/4" diameter X 12" long pipe nipple for the vertical shaft. A "pipe nipple" is a short pipe threaded on both ends with male pipe thread
  • Two 3/4" diameter X 4" long pipe nipples for handles
  • One 3/4" diameter pipe "T" fitting
  • One 3/4" floor flange
  • Optional But Suggested: One spring clamp (suggestion - Irwin Quick-Grip 1") to keep plates from drifting up at the top of the swing.

Assembly Instructions:

  • Connect the two 4" pipe nipples into the handles of the T pipe. You are basically extending these handles so you can hold them.
  • Connect the 12" long pipe nipple into the single shaft of the T pipe. You are basically extending the vertical shaft of the T pipe to make a holding pipe for the weights.
  • Slide weighted plates onto the body of the T handle.
  • Attach the floor flange to keep the plates from falling off as you swing.
  • Optional: attach the clamp to the pipe just above where the weight sits to keep the weights in place.
