The Sears green-handled grippers...first gripper I ever saw, ever used. They must not have changed for 30 years, as I remember the box and the grippers, my brother had them. I know the time frame, because he had them for a year or two before I broke my arm in 1967. After I got my cast off I could not budge it, and it hurt down to the very bone. I used the gripper to judge my rehab/recovery.
