So I made my own RGC rating device and tested it out today, pretty I tried to copy cannons rating process as close as I can. The only main difference was the strap, mine is 3/4" and I placed it at the

I made my own TTK which is bigger, more solid then the Ironminds, Olympic sized loading pin rather then standard, and I feel like the angle on it is better. I have a few ideas for a blob trainer and

Good looking rig! The strap goes at the end of the handle, not at the bevel. I don't know how this confusion ever got started, but somehow it's being passed along despite my tenacious efforts to co

I think the best system would involve parallel plates on either side of the gripper pushing on the handles, but that's not nearly as easy as weights on a strap.

Cool stuff there!

Thanks, its been fun to play around with rating grippers.

That would be a harder thing to build or a very expensive thing to buy.

I like the idea of a crane scale and ratchet strap setup the best so far.

That definitely seems like the least amount of effort to rate, which is great. I can't imagine hauling those weights every time.

Jared, if I have space in the truck when heading up for the comp I will bring up my Pinch Secret Weapon. I think you would dig it and may give you some ideas.

Bevels/chamfers will vary wildly in size, this is why they shouldn't be used for alignment purposes!

And not all grippers even have them. But all grippers have ends of handles.

Just curious, how does this work with extended handle grippers?

Yeah I would love to check it out!

Yeah I'm also wonder about the extended handle grippers and smooth handled grippers.

I think Cannon said he used athletic tape for smooth handles to keep the strap in place. I'm assuming some sort of measurement is used on the extended handles.

For extended handles, I would guess you just immobilize the extended handle in the device, and weight the knurled standard handle.

Extended handled would have to be given an estimate...and I forgot to say, nice set up Jared but blobby welding! ;)

Yeah I'm not a welder by trade and YouTube taught me how but I'm pretty sure it will hold.

Are you a mig welder?

You just put the extended handle in the device and the strap on the regular handle. Then close as usual and get the rating.

I can point and squirt but prefer TIG...can pretty much weld any metal any position, MIG, TIG, MMA and old school oxy too...it's just sticking metal together in the end. ;)

For the Elite, check the spring wire diameter. It may be a BBGM spring. Warren is known to have put the wrong handles on occasionally especially in recent years. I have at least a couple at home that were mismarked.

- Aaron

It is an Elite spring but narrow according to Cannon. Rates at 147.

Aaron is your pinch secret weapon anything like this? I'd like to see my model improved and made of metal one day, but just haven't done it myself yet. Here is the vid of what I came up with.
