Left radical is one of the radical versions of 'hand'. Right radical is a character found only in Chinese, here used phonetically to express 'sway/shake'.  Its bottom element is 'can/boiler' (缶). Its top element is another of the many radical versions of 'hand'.  Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'Shaking hands reach for can.'
