Wow that's such a cool idea, beats the heck out of a hose clamp for safety and damage prevention. 

If I understand this right is totally different. A clamp decrease the range of motion while keeping the resistance the same. I think this will keep the range of motion while increasing the resistance by adding friction

Correct, except not friction. 

When a spring moves, the inside of the coil deforms slightly. With The Bumper installed the deformation has to fight back against the rubber. Since the added resistance comes solely from the soft, natural rubber it’s impossible to harm the gripper. 🤗

We’re really excited to offer this. We feel it will be a huge addition to any gripper collection.

This is a really great idea. Can’t wait to try it. Thanks for always pushing the envelope and improving the store!

This thing looks like something David Blaine would design - My feeble mind cannot comprehend how this works but I'm in - Will buy one.

Also pretty sure David Blaine could no set close a #4 or at least make us think he did🤔

When you squeeze a gripper the diamater of the coil hole gets smaller. If you fill this hole with something that will add resistance and make the gripper harder.

So Tightening the knob must expand the foam to add resistance. Kinda surprised no one has thought of this before? I don't see this taking the place of buying a "bridge the gap" gripper but it will certainly help when your stuck between a 5 pound increment.

I'm old enough to remember when people were using hose clamps on the spring.  Yes, it would add resistance and make a gripper harder.  But at the cost of permanently damaging the spring.

Everyone always asks me about clamps and chokers and I don’t use them because I believe relying on them too much makes your set and sweep weak. I love that this new device makes the gripper harder while keeping the range of motion

The brilliance lies in applying a similar item that has existed for decades to increase gripper resistance. It's very similar to a rubber pipe plug.

Absolutely. I remember this too. Same idea as inserting an IRON pipe through the spring and forcing it shut. Both of these methods use something stronger than the spring PLUS force to damage the spring. This is where The Bumper is totally safe because the natural rubber cannot harm the spring.

What is the products life expectancy (is that the right word?)? 

Great question! The rubber was the hardest part to get right and source. We tested it pretty extensively and failure is yet to be seen. It still functioned as new after thousands of reps.

Okey great :)

And also, thanks for answering even though it was already stated in the description. Read it now.

Finally had a chance to look at this.

This is freakin GENIUS!  Anyone who trains seriously with grippers should want one.  

Kudos Cannon Powerworks!

The product launches tomorrow 9/19. While we are expecting an initial rush, there should be plenty for everyone!
