Woman gobsmacked to discover proper way to use grab handles inside car

A woman has revealed she was shocked when she found out the “proper” use of grab handles in her car.

TikTok poster Jess, who has more than 250,000 followers, @jmac8781, often shares videos about “things you might not know”.

Some of her previous videos have explained why toothbrushes have different coloured bristles and how to remove tough stains.

But, her recent car hack went viral with over 1.4million views.

The video began with one person pulling down the grab handle in the car – that’s the ones that flip down and sit above the car doors.

But, when letting go of the handle instead of it flipping back up to sit flush with the car’s roof they flip a catch.

This makes the grab handle stay in place like a rail, reports the Mirror.

And, it makes it super easy to hang things like suit jackets or dry cleaning in place.

Jess looked stunned before running to her own car to check whether the hack worked on her handles – and it does.

Now, it should be noted that this trick might not work on all car models, but it’s worth checking if you use them as hooks a lot.

The video has racked up more than 1,800 comments and over 100,000 likes.


Another wrote: "What the heck?!? 42 years of my existence!"

A third commented: "Why don't these things come with instructions!!!!!!! Ahhhhhhhhh my life!!!!"

"I thought that it is for hanging shirt," said someone else.

But, some commenters were confused by the purpose of the latch.

One person noted: "I didn’t know you could do this. Genuinely curious though. What do you use this for? I feel like I’m missing something."

Are you able to do this in your car? Tell us in the comments…
