When we introduced our Golf Grips at the PGA Show, we were so proud. Oliver came up with a great design. They were made with 6,000 lb rated nylon strapping, heavy duty upholstery thread, buckles rated for 250 pounds, D-rings rated at 60 lbs and industrial strength hook and loop / Velcro rated at 5,000 closures, the number of times the Velcro will maintain its current tear strength after so many opens and closes.
We proudly designed and hand-made our Grips to last forever.
Our booth was swamped! Our ‘Bag Tag on Steroids’ was so unique! Our embroidered patch enabled golfers to show off their colors, while helping them centralize their gear and carrying and air-drying several golf gloves at once.
We had lots of interest.
We priced them at $24.95.
Attendees lost interest due to our pride pricing!
But from there we discovered that our solution was not just golf-centric. It made sense for so many other applications. Our Grips evolved.
We also lowered our prices yet kept the following in place.
-Hand made in Chicago
-Exact same rugged, high-quality components.
Yes our Grips are over-built. PROUDLY!
Yes our Grips are under-priced. Even more PROUDLY!
We learned that pride does not encourage purchases. Value encourages purchases.
Many of our customers have had their grips for years!
We proudly over-build our Grips so you can under-worry about your gloves and gear.

O Glove where art thou,

A grip for your gripper, that tool you depend on for work, or play, or usage all day.
No pain nor damage of duress, keep all your layers of epidermis
No loss, no stink. Never to worry, never to think.
All kept secure on a Grip, Grip, Grip
We love a glove, or gloves for a pairing
Keep them close by, air-dry, no erring!

An Ode to our crush...
Oh Velcro dear friend, let us count all the ways….you make gloves better, so worthy of praise!
Yes, Hook and Loop is correct to say, why not give papa George De Mestral his props today.
For without Papa G, many of us would not play the games we so love since gear would fly ‘way,
From palms holding so tight. No more ‘ripping sound’, so cool, that glove was on right!
No securing, no air-drying, gloves would go missing, we spent so much money, and now who is dissing.
They were left in wrong bags, so sweaty, so dank. In the dark for so long they permanently STANK!
Gloves are a tool that we need and do trust, to keep them secure our Grips are a must
Your gloves will stay true, your palm no more blue, having some fun since the job’s getting done
For so many jobs, V Gloves are the best. We love V Gloves as our grips do attest.

Choosing the right glove is equivalent to choosing the right tool.
Why are some tools more expensive than others?
Is it the quality? Sometimes it is the brand. Many times it is what materials are used to make the glove. Other times it could be the amount of labor that goes into making the glove or where it was made.
But all things being equal….if a glove fits and appears to be able to do the job, why even get the glove with a velcro wrist strap and instead save a few bucks and get a glove with a ‘Elastic Wrist Cuff’ (EWC). It saves money and gets the job done, right?
Only if you don’t really need gloves in the first place….maybe to protect that man’icure or at the other end of the spectrum, you are handling stuff and waste that will render your gloves useless or undesirable once the task is done.
Surgical gloves come to mind. Also those brown canvas gloves you are wearing to handle some nasty waste….let’s not get too graphic…but I think you get the point.
What it comes down to is whether you spend $7 or $70 on a pair of gloves, get ones that become a 2nd layer of protection or added grip for your task at hand…gloves with a velcro wrist strap!
In addition to firmly securing the glove to your hand, there are five other ways wrist-straps pay for themselves?
Velcro Wrist Straps enable you to….
Our Velcro-powered Grips are glove holders that embrace all the functionalities of your gloves Velcro Wrist-straps.
YES, wrist-straps are worth it! They pay for themselves, especially when paired up with one of our Grips!

According to Dictionary.com,
1. an implement, especially one held in the hand, as
a hammer, saw, or file, for performing or facilitating mechanical operations.
4. the machine itself; a machine tool.
5. anything used as a means of accomplishing a task or purpose:
Education is a tool for success.
1. a covering for the hand made with a separate sheath for each finger and for the thumb.
If a tool is properly stored, dry and maintained, does it last longer?
If a glove is properly stored, dry and maintained, does it help you do your job, complete your task or make you a better competitor?
Gloves are used as a means of accomplishing a task or purpose.
Gloves = Tools
Treat your gloves as you would your tools.
You’ve spent good money to help you do something important, fun or safe. If you can’t find them, or the gloves are stored wet or not close by, they are less effective.
Keep your gloves accessible, air-dry and close by.
Notice that all the tasks above use gloves with adjustable wrist straps. Velcro wrist-straps have an advantage over ‘elastic wrist cuffs’……THESE GLOVES DO NOT SLIP OFF! An additional benefit of having Velcro wrist-straps is their built in ability be hung from, secured….GRIPPED.
Keep your gloves accessible, air-dry and close by….with any one of our Grips!
Keep Safe, Focused and Gripped!
