Unknown Part of Drill - Help? Answered

This should probably be an easy answer, yet I'm unable to find it through Google.

On almost, if not every hammer drill, there's a part that lets you connect a handle to the drill, like this:

How is that part called? A collar?

Thanks.

In the pic of the drill they just call it a "Secondary Handle or Auxiliary Handle with Depth Stop .

But it is a split collar mounting secondary handle with depth stop.

I would call it a split collar. Here's a picture of a bare split shaft collar from a quick Google search.

This page, calls teh side handle, "drill handle" and "removable handle"

http://www.popularmechanics.com/home/tools/how-to/...

A Google Image search for, "collar for side handle for drill", seems to produce more specifically pictures of this, collar plus side handle combination.

https://www.google.com/search?hl=en&site=imghp&tbm...

Still dunno exactly what it is supposed to be called though.

I dunno. I just tried a Google(r) Image search for "drill with removable handle", then went to a few of the sites those pictures came from, and then I did not actually read the descriptions in their entirety. I just used control-f, to search the text for instances of the word "handle".

I found one place, calling this handle on the side of the drill, a "removable side handle"

http://www.cpomilwaukee.com/milwaukee-5380-21-1-2-...

Also on many of these sites, I found a bunch of chatter about a "spade handle" or a "D-handle", but I think that refers to a handle on the back of the drill, behind the chuck and the motor, a handle often shaped like a capital letter "D".

I think the answer is out there, if you have the Google-Fu to find it.
