  • Product Description

    Handhold assemblies are configured in many different ways. Each assembly is designed to match the individual passenger or freight car. Attention is given to the material finish of the steel as that can affect the functionality and aesthetics of the product. The holes of the handhold are drilled to create an accurate diameter and the handhold may be screwed or riveted within the car itself. The middle brace section of the assembly is screwed into place.

    Depending on your requirements, KDK will make a custom die for your handhold requirements. Please send us a copy of your drawing and we will be happy to review your part and send a quote to you.
