Custom Divers do a bar that bolts on to your set just for handling.

Personally, my two methods for the twinset are:
Hold it by the boots, so the valves are about head high - when I take it for fills
Leave it atatched to the wing & harness - all the other times

Wouldn't find a handle useful, as it's too heavy to even consider carrying with just one hand - throws your back out. And that's just twin 7s..

<font color='#F52887'>Hi Wacker. At the NDC, on the counter in the shop they have a handle made out of machined ali which is GORGEOUS! I dont know who makes it, but it is lying there waiting for me to buy it! every time I go there, it sits there seductively, willing me to buy it. The handle lies under your manifold and clamps onto the tank necks in the usual way.
Hope this helps,
JOHN

What's wrong with using the valves?
You will inevitably be putting a lot of pressure on the open/close knobs which are moving parts and have o rings(at least my make does).

A recent small gas leak in this area warranted replacement of the O rings and I was told "common fault down to wear and tear and particularly carrying them by the valves".

Having said that, I still pick my twin 10s up by the valves.
