Originally created as a grip for professional tattoo artists using the Apple stylus, EGO grips can be used for all sorts of things, including crochet hooks! They are perfect for use on hooks you can't or don't want to replace. OpoCrochet stocks EGO ergonomic grips to help those crocheters who work with very tiny crochet hooks or want to make a on old favourite hook ergonomic. They are extremely effective at easing hand pain.
Don't be fooled, the quality and design of these grips is superior, far better at relieving pain than smaller, cheaper ones. A combination of quality materials, generous width, and ergonomic shape sets these grips apart from others. They are silky smooth without being slippery, allowing hand relaxation and a use of a very light touch.
The inside diameter of EGO pencil grips is 8mm, a little larger than standard pen or pencil size. It can stretch a little so will fit over many handles, even the ergonomic grips on some crochet hooks. It is possible to accommodate the grip to slim items by wrapping them with a rubber band, yarn, or PTFE/plumbers tape to make them a little wider prior to fitting the EGO. The are available in two styles:
- Large: At 27mm across, the width might look and feel a little unusual at first, but it beautifully opens the hand, relieving pain very effectively. Availabile in solid white or black, as well as pink swirl, blue swirl, and grey swirl.
- Slimline 14mm is the same quality material and workmanship, but in a different outline and more slim design as the name suggests. Only available in solid white or black.
No grip can fit all items, so if the EGO grip does not fit, returns are accepted provided the grip and original packaging is in resellable condition.
