Vitop Plastic Handles

Vitop® handles allow consumers to easily and comfortably grab the Bag-in-Box® (BIB) on retail shelves, boosting sales through increased customer convenience. Specially designed for maximum strength, they are as durable and strong as conventional rigid plastic handles, yet are comfortable to hold and easy to carry. The handle is soft and smooth and will not mark fingers, even when carrying a five liter BIB. The Vitop handle technology ensures that once the handles are inserted into a box, it is virtually impossible to involuntarily remove the handle. Vitop handle insertion can be manual or automated using our handle insertion machines. Handles are available in different colors to add the perfect finishing touch to your Bag-in-Box packaging.
