"Hand Springs/Cedar Point '76" is a split 7" single released in 2000 by Detroit garage rock bands The White Stripes and The Dirtbombs. The White Stripes song "Hand Springs" is on the A-side and "Cedar Point '76" by The Dirtbombs is on the B-side. Only 2,000 copies were pressed and included free with the pinball fanzine Multiball. The record is extremely rare, and a highly prized collector's item.

"Hand Springs" was later featured on the 2000 compilation album Hot Pinball Rock, Vol. 1. Also, a large number of copies of the White Blood Cells album were packaged with a bonus DVD that included audio tracks of "Hand Springs" (as well as "Lafayette Blues").

The single was packaged with another one track single, "Red Death at 6:14", as its b-side for Record Store Day 2012.
