Same awesome tape, different way to use it. Our HookGrip tape provides pre-cut strips sized to protect weightlifters' thumbs when using the *hookgrip technique. We’ve taken a standard 5cm (2”) x 5m (16’) roll of RockTape and pre-cut 32 150mm strips that easily tear off for quick use. That means less time taping, and more time lifting!


5cm (2”) wide to fit all thumbs
32 strips = 16 lifting sessions
No hassle, pre-cut 150mm/6” strips for quick and easy application


Approved for use in all competition as long as the tip of the thumb is exposed
Protects thumbs and provides increased grip during high volume barbell lifts

*Hookgrip: A method of holding a barbell by gripping the thumb between the barbell and the remaining fingers, thereby making the grip strong when performing heavy load lifts.

Hook grip tape is awesome!

Written by Rlong LMT on 3rd Aug 2021

I like the versatility of hook grip tape! I use it as a shorter (6") pre-cut strip especially for shoulders when I don't need the full length pre-cut (10") Sticks just as well as the "extra sticky/H2O" tapes. It's also great to support foot arches, tops of feet, backs of hands, elbows, upper traps etc. Please keep this in production!

Perfect as a precut tape

These are great! I’ve been cutting mine out for years and it saves so much time to use the precut! I use this and the 10 inch precut ones now and they meet most of my needs! I still have a few uncut rolls in case I need a custom length.

Hook Grip Review

Written by Jeff Soelberg on 31st Oct 2019

I have used the hook grip for a while now and love it. I am a partial hand amputee and compete in many types of adaptive fitness comps. I have found several uses out of the norm and what it was designed for. I sometimes use it to protect my amputated index fingers MP joint as it gets tender under my prosthetic. It helps to add a little cushion.

After tearing up my thumbs with CrossFit for a few months, I thought I'd give the HookGrip Tape a try. The flexibility versus standard tape is wonderful, and the fabric holds chalk and grip very well. Plus, the pre-cut strips eliminates the need for scissors when slippery hands make tearing tape a chore.

Great tape

I only hook grip on sets I can't hold with an overhand grip. The tape is excellent. The stick side is scored to help with the fit and flex. I slightly bend the joint as I'm taping. Plenty long.

At first I didn't like it to be honest. But I love your tape so I gave it another try. I heated up the first contact to my thumb then wrapped and rubbed more. I put it on before I leave my house, so by the time I'm at the box it is secured. LOVE IT!!!!

great for non-glovers

Written by ronny varghese on 22nd Jan 2015

This tape is a perfect quick solution for the Oly lifts. There's a time and place where I want to wear my gloves, then there's a place where I need to just tape my thumbs and get after it. Taping the thumbs wins often as I like the feel of the bar and chalk...
