I'd like to discuss the existing "BreakAway Handle". I've ordered some black high temp silicone hose to begin making some solid handles for testing. https://www.mcmaster.com/#51135K152 Currently we have had 3 broken handles out of 300 sold. Yes i've bent mine before and I do realize there weak around the cross holes. Is it possible this weakness is actually beneficial to protecting the glass. Sure removing the cross holes and adding silicone would strengthen the handle and I'm sure we will never hear about a broken handle again. There's a limit to how much leverage the glass joints will endure before they start snapping. Are we moving the stress to the glass (Protecting the glass is always most important)? I wish I could admit that this breakaway feature was intended. Please consider the benefits of the breakaway handle next time you hand someone your flowerpot. Or what's best for a newbie? Perhaps a solid/silicone handle should be sold separately but not sold as the default choice. It's sure great to be talking about flowerpot upgrades again.
