OTTO Contour Grip Right - Side.jpg

Otto Engineering releases the Contour Grip, a modular ergonomic grip incorporating controls on the front, side, and back. The grip’s ergonomic design was tested and refined to minimize muscle strain in the arms and wrists, enabling extended use with minimal fatigue. While the housing remains constant, the Contour Grip switches are configurable to allow for various controls in different locations. Any Otto switch can be used in the grip, including Hall-effect and electromechanical switches such as thumbwheel, K series rocker, P and HP series push button, and T series toggle switches. Users can build a grip based on application-specific needs. The Contour Grip is available in left- and right-handed versions and is made to withstand harsh environments in construction, agriculture, forestry, and industrial applications.
