Should JAW Grips and Gloves feel really tight, I think they are too small?
They are designed to have a firm fit. There should be no slack in the palm section otherwise after the initial use and time, they will stretch and therefore become too large. They are supposed to feel like a part of your hand not a foreign product which is attached to you. JAW Protects hands and also allows you to feel the movement. Enjoy them!
Will the cloth stretch?
Yes. They are made from a stretch crepe fabric which will stretch after initial use and get more comfy with use.
Why are the finger sections not cut?
The Grips and Glove products are unisex and therefore need to cater for the variance in finger sizes of both males and females. This way you are able to personally tailor your grips to suit.
How do I cut the finger sections of the grips?
Using a sharp pair of scissors, cut from the top and only cut to the size of your finger. We suggest you cut a bit, then try on, and then cut a bit more if needed. They are meant to be a tight fit on your finger with no gaps. If you cut too much you will expose a gap which isn't ideal. Cut carefully and ensure they are perfect for your fingers.
Can I wash the grips products?
Yes, however it is not advised to use hot water. A light hand rinse in cold water if necessary. Please note that frequent washing will deteriorate the fabric a lot quicker.
How long will my grips last?
The suggested life span of the grips products varies from 3-12 months depending on the frequency of use and the care of the product. What also impacts this is your grips stength. The tighter the grip the more it will wear and rub on the rig or barbell. Another factor to consider is how rough your gyms barbells knurling and rig is. As the fabric is of a delicate nature, rough surfaces will definitely deteriorate the product quicker.
