Vacuum Grip Applicator DIY Guide

Step one:

Go to your hardware store and puchase:
 - 1x 250mm long 50mm diameter pvc tubing


- 1x multiplier 50mm


- 1x decrease diameter from 50mm to 32mm (or whatever size your vacuumcleaners pipe is.


- 1x roll of insulation tape if you dont have it

Step two:
 
- Measure the length needed for your grip setup (harrow, SH or LH would be different)
- The pipe has to go on both ends of the multiplier, so you need to cut it, i used a hacksaw. Measure how much you need.
- The decreaser goes on the other opening (the 45 degree pipe)

Step three:
- Put it all together, tape any connection, sand down the edges and try it out!.











Oh- and by the way - it works on octopus Grips as well!

No idea. I was just sick of my Gm not functioning properly. Took it apart, matched the measurements with the pvc, tried drilling and assembling first, but that was very bad. Second time around I tried this.. Basic idea is, enough suction, and every grip will expand. And ofc, everybody should be able to make and use- unlike the ones in the factories, and easy grip etc.

Looking forward to seeing the variations on this once the forum members start creating their own versions.

Very useful way of doing it. Wish this was done before Saturday, spent my evening applying a second grip to my 3 and I'm super picky about how I like it; don't like anything above the handle and like the top grip to cover the bottom completely. Cue several attempts with the bat cone before having to squish it up/down etc and my thumbs being blood red afterwards

75 kr = round 8 pounds. Not counting the vacuum cleaner, hacksaw, sanding paper for the rough edge.
