Two-Finger Utility Gripper
Train One or Two Fingers at a Time

The IronMind Two-Finger Utility Gripper, or IMTUG™, allows you to train one or two fingers at a time, at your choice of seven different strength settings. In this non-conventional design, the thumb is not excluded either; by training your pinch grip, you make sure that your thumb is working in powerful opposition to your digits for maximum holding strength and control.

Pocket sized and easy to use anytime, anywhere, the Two-Finger Utility Gripper is soft-tissue friendly, made from authentic IronMind Grip-Tech™ with ergonomically designed aluminum handles. The GR8™ Springs in the IMTUG utilize the same technology IronMind developed for its gold standard Captains of Crush. As such, the IMTUG can also be used in tandem with your CoC grippers, creating even more ways to train.

Choose an IMTUG based on the relative strength of your fingers:

  • Thumb - weakest - use an easier IMTUG (1-2)
  • Ring and Pinkie Fingers - moderate - use a medium IMTUG (3-5)
  • Index and Middle Fingers - strongest - use a tougher IMTUG (6-7)

Choose an IMTUG based on which Captains of Crush Gripper you are training with:

  • Guide or Sport - IMTUG 1, IMTUG 2
  • Trainer or No. 1 - IMTUG 2, IMTUG 3, IMTUG 4
  • No. 1 or No. 2 - IMTUG 3, IMTUG 4, IMTUG 5
  • No. 2 or No. 3 - IMTUG 4, IMTUG 5, IMTUG 6
  • No. 3 or No. 4 - IMTUG 6, IMTUG 7

Two-Finger Utility Gripper is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Isolation I love working each of my fingers and thumb separately, also pinching makes it harder.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well Constructed; Tougher than it looks I purchased the IMTUG3 to work on targeted improvement of an injured hand to assist with grip. While I have a decent grip strength, I elected to go with a slightly lighter resistance than the chart indicated. I am glad I did, because had I gone with a 4 or higher I would have had difficulties getting things started. Note to self: park ego and work on basics and build up from there. I now look forward to higher resistances in both the IMTUG and the COC grippers as "graduation gifts". Well done.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AKA Tugs I have 2 thru 6 each one definitely has their own resistance level. I like these grippers because I can focus on one finger #6 almost there - closing the grip. Just got the # 7 - its going to be awhile before I close them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great idea I bought this to try because regular angled grippers don't get the pinky or thumb. So, as cute as this little thing is, it isolates digits that are often over looked. Those problem are now solved for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It is heavy Don't be judged by such a little gripper because they are a tough exercise. I bought the number 3 and it is still hard to begin with. Great tool for strength.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from IMTUG 3 and 4 These small grippers really help to develop thumb strength as well as your lower two finger grip, something a normal COC can't isolate, I also recommend you wipe all the springs down with a Sentry Products Marine Tuf Cloth, because they are carbon steel.
