    I've had them and didn't like how they are monofilament magnets.

    Agreed. The one you show is just garbage. I've had both.

    Whats wrong with carrying an AL80 over your shoulder with a hand on the valve?

    There's probably nothing wrong doing that. I like to take 2 tanks from/to the boat and the garage and from/to the vehicle and the dive shop. Having a good solid handle on the tank makes it nicer for me, and I think my husband likes it too now that he's used it for a while.

    I wouldn't stop paying the electric bill in order to have handles but they are nice to have.

    I don’t get it either, there’s a good of a handle as you’d wish already( the valve) and manufacturers come up with these “ingenious” ideas, and then people buy them
