    I'm building/pricing a cap for my truck. One of the build options is a single T handle or double T handles on the rear door.

    Are the doubles stronger? Is there much difference other than styling?

    I've owned both. For ease of use single, I'll never go back to double handles.

    No problems with durability or longevity with the single compared to the double?

    The single is a little more complicated than the double but being able to open with one hand is priceless

    I am in and out of my shell constantly. I have about 45K on this top and 125K on my last single handle. Besides needing to lubricate once in a while, I have had no issues.
