Adding your handle. I chose to use 1" webbing, but you could use tubular webbing and add a dowel inside for a more rigid handle, 2" webbing folded over or what ever floats your boat. I had 1" laying around so I used it up. To add to its strength, we'll fold it over itself and sew it together; don't forget burn the raw edge to prevent fraying:
Place your 1" webbing 1" away from the hook side of the velcro. Pull approx 1 inch onto the underside and fold the remainder underneath so it reaches to the other side. Flag stitch it and if you do it properly it will secure both sides of the webbing to the body and ensure a strong, structural handle. Do this for both sides.
What it should look like on the other side:
Final product after cutting off threads:
Install it, my measurements were a bit off, I could have added a half inch in length but the 2'"velcro will be strong enough to hold it. It's a very snug fit:
End result, a happy fiancee which won't whine about erratic driving!
