A great upgrade for your jigging setup, making for more comfort and ease while fishing vertically and winching big fish out of the depths.

First, you must remove the two phillips screws on each side of the 2-speed button. Gently remove the switch cover, small plastic spacer with switch (Leave switch and spring in the plastic spacer, for reverence) and then remove handle.
You will have to transfer the switch and spring from the old plastic washer to the new one. (Look at old one for reference, only goes one way).
Then slide handle over the post, followed by the new plastic spacer and original switch, then the new cover plate, tighten with new longer screws (Blue Loctite 242 recommended).

I love the handles and what a difference they make. I appreciate all the Customer Service Support.
Original power handle for my Talica II 20 looks great and powerful. Received the Talica power handle on time as advertised. Good job Tackle Express!
I replaced the original handle of Shimano Talc II 16 with this T-bar handle. It was easy to install. I like it because it is a genuine Shimano part. Others sell generic brands, a bit cheaper than Shimano T-Bar handle. This is very sturdy and will add more power when I land bluefin tuna in San Diego. I gave it 4 stars because the plastic part is a bit too thick. It could have been better if it is not so thick. I am 5'9''. It may be alright for others who are taller than me. Other brands like Okuma and Avet power handles are perfect for me. Anyway, I was glad to find it on the Tackle Express website.
