Kinetic Research Group or KRG manufactures a gunsmith free oversized bolt knob for the ever popular Remington 700 that installs with a single tool and it's rather ingenious.  The KRG Bolt Lift comes packed in a stylish little metal tin with the KRG logo embossed on the lid.
Inside the tin you will find both halves to the Bolt Lift, 4 o-rings, the one screw that holds it together, a sticker and some instructions.
The Bolt Lift is designed to fit over the rinky dink bolt knob that comes standard on pretty much every Remington 700 I have ever seen.  There is a pocket shaped like bolt knob and each half of the bolt lift sandwiches it.  The o-rings are there to allow you to snug up the fit.  I only used one on mine and it was rock solid after locking the halves together.
The two posts visible closest to the bolt combined with the one screw makes things come together without any wobble.  It actually locks together so well with just the two posts that it took me several minutes of careful prying when I put them together when I first got it.  The kit suggests that if you want things to be permanent you can epoxy things together if you really want.
Once you have the proper setup with o-rings and its on the bolt just screw it together making sure to not over torque it.  The threaded side is just a threaded insert pressed into the other half of the polymer body.  This whole thing can go together in less then 5 minutes.  The body of the KRG Bolt Lift is lightly textured to add a bit of grip.  If your stipple happy I am sure this would also be a good project for you.  The added size of the Bolt Lift feels miles better then the original bolt knob.  Being as I am stuck in the land of ice and snow, gloves are always on my mind when it comes to shooting.  I now have something substantial to grab onto and ram another .308 Winchester into the chamber with.  The best part of the whole thing is the MSRP is $28 USD and you can choose from the model pictured above or the SV version which is smaller and looks a bit different.  That would only cover postage to and from a gunsmith if you want a bolt knob put on by them.  This means you can take the money you save and invest it in ammo to get better at shooting.  It also adds negligible weight to the rifle for those stuck humping a rifle up a mountain in search of Big Foot.
