Joysticks Sure Grip JM/JL joysticks are designed for the really tough applications. The JL Series is a simple, reliable device that will change the way you look at electronic joysticks. The unique spherical metal housing ensures a solid base that protects the electronics from outside interference. The spherical body of the joystick is mounted within a two piece clamp that permits up to 20 degrees of adjustment in any direction - meaning the angle of the joystick can be easily adjusted, reducing operator fatigue. The "S" Series Control Grip is a small low cost grip that is designed for simple applications. It is commonly used as a replacement handle when installing a new attachment. The "C" Series Industrial Control Grip is a mid sized compact grip designed to offer 2 or 4 switches in the faceplate as well as the option of a trigger switch or deadman lever. The "J" Series Industrial Control Grip is a newer, mid-size grip designed with a new look and feel. It is comfortable and ergonomically friendly, and can be supplied with a rounded blank faceplate or with a fully switched faceplate. For applications such as forestry, mining and construction, the Sure Grip "L" Series Control Grip is a large handle. The tough ABS housing combined with a comfortable shape creates a rugged lightweight control handle that has become very popular for extreme duty applications requiring up to 10 switches (with the capability to expand to an additional 10 switches).
