The Adjustable Pinch Apparatus, originally designed by David Horne, has been a staple of Grip Strength Competitions since 2005.
The Two Hands Pinch World Record is the most coveted World Record in Grip Sport, and now the One Hand Pinch is increasing in popularity faster than probably any other record in the sport as well.
To truly perform your best in competition, it is IMPERATIVE that you own and train on an actual adjustable device.
Sure, you can use a ghetto 2HP device using 2-45’s, but you will never have optimal training that way because you will never know the perfect width for your hand size. That is, after all, the beauty of the Two Hand Pinch and One Hand Pinch that we contest in Grip Sport – the apparatus is fully adjustable to fit any hand size – man, woman, teenager, big hands, average hands, and small hands.
Having an apparatus to train on is imperative in order to perform at your best and put up the best score possible. This has been proven over and over, as all of the record holders and perennial top performers in Grip Sport own their own devices to train on.
In the past, the only way to get your own set-up in the United States was to purchase one from David Horne and deal with exorbitant shipping charges and long wait times.
But not anymore. I have begun sourcing the materials to produce adjustable pinch apparatuses that I call the Napalm Pinch Device.
There are two versions of the Napalm Pinch: the Basic Model and the Pro Model.
Napalm Pinch Basic
The Napalm Pinch Basic comes with two outside steel plates (.25″ thick) and 9-rubber inserts (each .25″ thick), giving you an excellent range of variety for your Two Hands and One Hand Pinch Training.
Napalm Pinch Pro
It is just like the original device designed and sold by Horne, but instead of having rubber inserts, it has inserts made of expandable PVC with tabs on them to make them easier to adjust widths for multiple trainees and competitors.
You will receive the outside steel plates and the inserts with your purchase
The Napalm Pinch adjustable-width pinch devices do not come with the loading pipe or collars. The unit includes only the outside steel plates and inserts. The pipe and collars would make the unit extremely expensive, and drive up costs significantly. A 3-foot length of Schedule 80, 1.5″ inside diameter pipe is suggested, to reduce the chance that the pipe will bend when dropped. Spin lock collars, as shown in the images, help keep the unit tight when lifting on it, and offer spacing between the gripping plates and the weights added to the pipe. Pony Clamps or other collars can be added to the outside of the pipe to keep the plates from sliding off during the lift.
When you order yours, there will be $30 added for shipping to your order. This is an estimate and if it is not enough to cover the shipping, I will get back with you to make up the rest. If it is too much, you will be refunded. All devices ship out USPS Standard Shipping or Priority (depending on availability) with Tracking and Insurance coverage.
Once you have your own Official Two Hands Pinch device, prepare to watch your numbers explode, since you will finally be able to figure out your proper width and get to practice on a device that is the same as what is used in competition.
All the best in your training,
