If ! was a betting man ! would bet most people that use clothes washing powder find the tiny little handle on the scoop that comes in the box annoying and inconvenient. The weird feeling washing powder leaves on your skin, trying to dig deep down with that little scoop, and if you had limited use of your hands? Oh man ! would hate that little scoop.
The Long Reach Laundry Scoop is a utilitarian item and as such ! recommend printing the Scoop Tub on standard Fast Print settings and the Handles on Normal or Fast Print settings, nothing more. The Handles are interchangeable.
The split in the ring of the Grip Handle is to help get a finger out should one get stuck in there.
The Pin Handle is easy to get into a clenched fist.
So here's a new Laundry Scoop world! The Long Reach Laundry Scoop!

Update 12 January 2018: model now solid (no multiple shells) due to some slicing software not being able to handle multiple shells.
22 Sept 2016: Updated STL's for a tighter fit of the handle to the scoop.
If you have downloaded and printed the updated files and are still not getting the handle to fit as tightly as you would like, ! would recommend scaling the Scoop Tub Down by 0.5% (that's one half of a percent) OR Scale Up whichever Handle needs a tighter fit by 0.5% (that's one half of a percent). If you downloaded the STL's before this Update please Re-Download the Updated STL files.
