Title: Shock-proof structure of the handle cover of a hand tool

Abstract: A shock-proof structure of the handle cover of a hand tool for improving the shock-proof ability of the handle cover. Wherein the handle cover is made of soft elastic material and has a hollow handle shape. The center portion of the handle cover has an axial engaging hole for being engaged by an inserting portion of the hand tool. Characterized in that: banks of vents are formed at sides of the upper and lower portions of the handle cover, each vent has a certain depth within the handle cover without penetrating the handle cover. Thereby, the vents is formed as air bags in the upper and lower portions of the handle cover and as a shock-proof structure of the handle cover. Wherein when a react impact is induced from an object due to the hand tool, since user's hand holds the periphery of the vents, thus, the vents will be compressed and pinched so as to reduce the volume thereof. Meanwhile, the react impact from the hand tool is buffered. therefore, the impact from the hand tool to the hand of the user is reduced.
