Very handy handle for Better Bottle® Carboys and other plastic carboys. Easily snaps on to neck of carboy to safely lift and carry empty or full carboys with one hand. Easily snaps off to be used with multiple carboys at a high pace. Handle is very rugged and can handle full 6, 5 or 3 gallon Better Bottles®. Works with bungs however you may have to remove an airlock while using this handle.
**Please keep in mind this handle easily snaps on and off and while it is designed to use with full carboys, it can dislodge and cause the carboy to fall if not used with care. We recommend carrying carboys as close to the ground as safely possible (watch your back!) and use extra care when lifting carboys to higher surfaces.**

This handle slips off too easily, resulting in dropped carboys and major spills. The product description gives a warning but it's not enough. If you use this product, you will eventually dump wort or beer all over the place. Just lift it up and carry it or buy a strap that goes under the carboy.

I'm generally not a negative person, and even if I run into issues with something I usually give it the benefit of the doubt. But I've precariously lugged full carboys with this only to give up after a few minor drops and one big one. The 'warning' in the product description pretty much describes my experience. It is a balancing to carry it without the handle popping off.
