The carrying handle on my Trident pulled out. It didn't break, just pulled out. Anyone know where to get the parts or how to fix it? Everything I see online is just a replacement handle which I don't need.

What type of handle, the rigid plastic or the nylon rubber type?

Disregard. It was where the carrying handle screws into the hull. The metal lined hole was stripped out but a little larger screw grabbed in and I got it reattached.  For now.

Those brass nuts are molded in when the plastic is melted during the process. Easy to access for the front to change out the molded nut. I can help you with that if you want. The rear handle might be a bit trickier.

Does anyone know where to source those handles?  Mine ripped on one side.  I see similar handles on eBay, but not sure if they're the right fit.  IIRC, there's one company that makes all the accessories, but I may be thinking of Wildy

I don't think it's too stripped. I found a bolt similar to the one that came out on the bow and it's holding up good so far
