I bought a handle keeper about a year ago at one of the Expos. It definitely works as it should - keeps the handle from rattling around. But mine fell apart into pieces. I don't have my Hi-lift mounted on my exterior. I keep it stored inside the jeep when I take it on trips and I keep the jack and handle in my garage. Granted it gets hot in there, but it gets no sun exposure. I like in socal - it gets hot but the temperature swings aren't extreme. Literally crumbled apart in my hands when I was loading the jack up for a recent trip. I love my Hi-Lift jack, just wish/hope they can figure out what happened here. Hopefully maybe mine was a fluke. But just wanted to share. Im using a bungee to keep things together now.

This might keep your handle from moving but it’s got too much play. It slides up and down easily and that’s NOT what you want. Not sure why it’s so loose. Looks cool but little too loose for my old Hi-lift. Maybe it fits better on a newer one? IDK maybe it will shrink a bit in this desert heat

5.0Great Handle Keeper
This handle keeper ensures my jack handle remains in place and not beating up the back of my jeep, regardless of how rough the road is. I mount my Hi-Lift vertically on the tailgate and the factory spring clip handle keeper is inadequate for this installation. It also fits snugly and reduces jack rattle.

Fits snug and keeps the handle in place. I'm glad I decided to order it.
