Universal Control Grip

Guardian’s Universal Control Grip offers the most flexibility in choosing left or right-hand styles. Two different left-side grip head modules can hold two or four switches. Two right-side grip head modules do the same. Four different body plates convert a left-hand grip into a right-hand grip with ease, and the grip can be specified with or without palm rest features.

All component parts are made from high quality cast aluminum alloy A356-T61 that can be anodized per MIL-A-8625, allowing the grip to be painted any color required.

Optional Switches1

Given the flexible nature of this grip, almost any switch can be mounted into the body of the grip. Shown in the schematics, the head pieces are different on the left-hand and right-hand variants. Typically, the switches are pushbuttons, two-way toggles, bat-handle toggles, mini 4-ways, or mini 5-way switches. Seldom-used switches that need flip covers or shrouds to prevent accidental operation can be accommodated (note the “JETT” label, above photo.)

This grip can hold from one to ten switches and a trigger. With the aluminum construction, custom switch locations can be installed per customer requirements.

This grip is available for aerospace applications, simulators, commercial, and material-handling applications.
