MOTORISTS are just realising how to use the grab handles in their car properly thanks to a viral video on TikTok.
Social media star @jmac8781 made the discovery and rushed to share the revelation with her followers.
Jess has more than 250,000 followers on the social media site and usually shares tech-based hacks.
But one of her videos went viral and was watched by more than 100,000 people who were stunned when she revealed this car-related hack.
The video starts by showing someone pulling down the car's grab handle, then flipping down a small catch inside.
The catch ensures that the grab handle stays in place, making it easier to hang things up when you have your hands full.

Since the video was posted it racked up more than 107,000 likes and almost 2,000 comments from other motorists who were just as surprised as Jess.
One person said: "Why don't these things come with instructions?"
And another said: "What the heck?!? 42 years of my existence!"
katiecc86 was slightly confused and said: "I didn’t know you could do this. Genuinely curious though. What do you use this for? I feel like I’m missing something."
This comes after TikTok star sidneyraz discovered that his sun visor is actually a lot more useful than you might think.
He starts this driving-themed video saying "Here's something I didn't know until I was in my thirties.
"Sun visors in cars extend!"
He goes on to pull the car's sun visor down and then out to the side, before sliding it back towards himself.
This gives an even greater range of protection from bright sunlight during the summer but also on those sunny winter days.
