An Electrograpple Handle is a magnetized section of Equipment designed to fly toward a specifically attuned Grapple Gauntlet (The cost of which is included in the Upgrade cost). A piece of Equipment with an Electrograpple Handle can be retrieved by a character wearing the attuned Grapple Gauntlet as a Move Action out to a range of 6 squares. If the Equipment is held or strapped down, the Grapple Gauntlet allows a Strength check with a +5 bonus to rip it free. This is used as an opposed Strength check (To remove it from someone holding it) or against the break DC of the straps restraining it.
This is most often used on a Weapon. This allows a character to throw a Weapon down to "Prove" they are disarmed, only to retrieve it at range when trouble starts.
