Simon Hope Double Ended Quick Release Handles


These are now discontinued. Take a look at the Simon Hope Deluxe Quick Release Handles which are the replacement.

Redesigned in 2016, these Simon Hope Double Ended Quick Release Handles have the following improvements:

  • Better Grips.
  • Self Ejecting Heads.
  • Encapsulated Collets – releasing the head pulls the Collet free which, in turn, releases the blade.

Made in the UK using CNC processes and the Collets are made from Acetal which soaks up vibrations and prevents loosening.

If you wish to use these new style quick release heads on your older style black quick release handles, you can!

The Quick Release Handle also comes in a single ended version.
