Wanted Wanted: Sullivan "Insta-Just" #2 Control Line Handle(s)

So now, I'm on a "Handle Kick" and am looking for the old style Sullivan Control Line Handles...yes...like Uncle Wayne had back in the day.  

These had a much smaller rail than the current Sullivan Handles though the plastic grip looks to be the same.  This is another of my "Nostalgia Buys", so I'm only interested in the type on the left below.

Anyway, if one of you might have one or more of these laying around that you'd consider selling, please shoot me a note! Old Bugger

THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I used that handle back in the day and I had many of them. I will tell you that while the line spacing was adjustable and the holes were correctly located the center locking screw is the bad part. I had the cables get caught on them and wreck more than one airplane. The last was my Tudor in the 80's and that's when I called it quits for those handles. The later handle you show had a red cap on the end of the threads and that was notorious for catching the lines. Just beware that in hard maneuvering, there's that potential for that to happen.  When we fly two or more up, NO HATS as the button rivet on the top of the hat ALWAYS catches the lines causing near crash or instant crash.

I will look in my handle stash and if any are left, I will certainly give them to you.

Kim, I will take a peek tomorrow evening as I have to move a lot to get into the closet. My son feels I no longer have them but I think I do. Will check nonetheless. Ken
