Why do I need the GP-Grip Jeep Wrangler grab handle/ grab bar?
Grab and get up your Jeep Wrangler, UTV or Jeep-type UTV sooner, rest your arm while driving, stabilize you when the doors are off, grab handle is an essential part of the Jeep and all. But there is more to the GPCA® GP-Grip for Jeep enthusiasts like you.
- Sturdy grip for both on/ off-road, no more swinging back-and-forth
- Safe, not just safe, it’s practical in an emergency
- Foldable when getting in/ out, check tire placement or when a full window view is needed
- Versatile with inner pocket and utility pouch(PRO) for whatever you need
There are many handles for cheap, should I research more?
Yes, always research before you buy to fit your need. What is the best roll bar/ rack grab handle? Only 3 main types of grab handles are on the market now.
- Plastic grab handles on window roll bar
They are there for years, on cheap bags and every other Jeep, wiggly, head bumping and dated looking
- Metal grab bars on A-pillar
Great for getting in the Jeep, blocking part of the window, too far to reach to rest your arm when driving
- Paracord handles on window roll bar
Great for personalization, it’s still a cord, thin, wiggly and too soft to hold
The authentic patented GP-Grip by GPCA® is the ONLY ONE that is foldable, maintaining full window view, solid no swinging back-and-forth, and pack with versatile features.
Is it easy to install? How is fitting for JL, JT, JK and more?
Yes! 3 simple steps to install: (illustrated instruction is also in the package.)
- Put the GP-GRIP PRO on top of the roll bar with the secret pocket side down, arrow-end pointing back.
- Wrap the straps through the handle, and guide the straps through the back loops of the utility pouch, and press the Velcro area on the top. Always mount the utility pouch on the inside of the roll bar.
- Now fold the handle up FIRST and then pull and adjust the straps to fit tightly. After the adjustment, firmly press the Velcro area on the top. DONE!
You can tighten the straps accordingly for the first time. To maintain the flip-away tightness, you might need to tighten it a bit more after a few weeks of the first time installation. For Jeep JL/ JT, you can move the handle a bit near one side of the roll bar since the roll bar cross-section is more like a square instead of a circle.
The GP-Grip strap has 2 functionalities on it. First, it straps to the rollbar, second, it should be tightened to hold the foldable handle in 2 different positions. Please remove the freedom top, so that you can have full access to the roll bar, you can then pull the strap fully when the handle is in folding position and Velcro them. It’s also recommended to tighten the straps after 1-2 weeks after the first installation because it helps the fabric to really adjust to the roll bar and keep things nice and tight.
JL/ JT/ JK from 2007-present models has 3″ window roll bar, it will perfectly fit the GP-Grip PRO and LITE version.
For earlier Jeep models (CJ YJ TJ LJ) or Jeep-type UTV, the GP Grip LITE Universal handle will fit your roll bar or rack from 1″-5.5″(max) diameter.
Will the GP-Grip fit the roll bar on both driver and passenger sides? or even the rear passenger side?
Yes! The design is universal, fits both driver and passenger sides and even the rear sport bar above the cargo space, but the utility pouch installations are slightly different.
Please always mount the arrow-end towards the back and the utility pouch inside. Note that on the passenger side, the utility pouch opening points to the front like the top one in this image and the video:
For the rear passengers, you can also mount them after the top speakers. For the JK soft top, you can mount the GP-Grip behind the knob. with the flip-away feature, you will never bump your head when getting in and out and they are closer to your shoulder behind the speakers, more convenient. Get 4 or more as a set! They also fit for the cargo roll bar size as well. ( * fold the arrow end inside to fit the back window roll bar for rear passengers on JL/ JT)
As for the orientation for the utility pouch on the rear right passenger side, since it’s open-sided on both ends, you can still maintain the GPCA orientation, point the Velcro opening to the front, and insert the window breaker pen from the rear side openings. From our test, if you slide in and clip the pen on the bottom side, it’s still easy to access and slide it out while moving the rear-end loop up a bit.
You can also mount the GP-Grip to the rear sport bar above the cargo, as an option, you can fold the arrow end to the main wrap to make it look symmetrical and cool. This folding option could be for Spiderweb shade owners if there are straps in the way of mounting the GP Grip.
How do I install the GP Grip LITE Universal handles?
The installation is similar to the PRO line. The Universal strap will fit 1″-5.5″(max) roll bar/ rack/ rail on all truck, UTV, car, boat, yacht. And you can extend the use of the MOLLE strap connecting the 2 straps to mount more gear on the GP Grip LITE Universal.
Under the Jeep Wrangler JL Sky One-touch top, It’s tighter than other top types, but you can feed the strap through in an angle so that the Velcro is not attached, after pulling it tight, shift align it with the Velcro and attached them. Reference this setup video
How well will the GP-Grip fit my hand? I have large hands.
It’s designed to fit all hands comfortably with the design intent of a SOLID grip for off-roading.
The average adult palm width is from Small (3.5inch) to XL (4inch), the GP-Grip metal handle size is 4.5 inch, added 1/2 inch wider than the 4inch XL size.
The padding wrap for the GP-Grip PRO is 4.2 inches wide, 1.2 inches in diameter. For big hands on the far side of the spectrum, you can tighten the handle padding for more space. And sometimes if the headrest is in the lowest position, you can raise it a bit to gain more space if needed.
We have the GP-Back-Grip so your passenger in the back can hold on to it behind the headrest.
What are the differences among the GP-Grip packages?
Our grab handle line includes PRO Survivor, PRO, LITE, LITE Fiber.
The PRO single-pack includes one handle Base with built-in inner pockets and an aluminum handle plus a utility pouch and a handle wraps.
The PRO Survivor includes a window breaker pen on top of the GP-Grip PRO package:
Any color options to match the handle to my Jeep?
The GP-Grip is all black on the wrap and straps to keep it consistent with the Jeep roll bar padding black. The metal handle is metallic gray aluminum that works with the wrap and all the factory colors well.

Can I mount other tools or different pouches to the GP-Grip so I can access them anytime?
Yes. The GP-Grip PRO and Survivor model comes with a linear utility pouch that is reversible to a MOLLE strap system, now you can mount GPCA Utility Case any 3rd party tools storage on top on it.
I have a Sunshade mounted on the rollbar, will the GP-Grip fit with it?
Yes. If space is limited, for instance, the JL/ JT rear window bar is shorter, or you have Spider Sunshade web straps on the roll bar, the GP-Grip bandana end is foldable, you can fold it inside make the length to 6″, and make room for anything else. Or you can wrap your sunshade straps after mounting the GP-Grip.
I have Sky One-Touch power top above the rollbar, will the GP-Grip fit with it?
Yes. You can get the GP Grip LITE Universal which is constructed by the duo-strap. the GP Grip PRO won’t fit it since under-space is tighter than the manual hardtop and soft top.
My JL manual soft top has a panel over the roll bar, will the GP-Grip still fit?
Yes. You can run the straps through the part without taking it off and install the GP-Grip. ( * fold the arrow end inside to fit the back window roll bar for rear passengers on JL/ JT) *JL Sky One-Touch Power Top is not compatible due to its tight tolerance.
