Topic tags/keywords: gripper diy gripper ordex

I saw the following post here and have a question…

The poster – Stelios L.A Stavrinides said he used 3mm “Ordex” non slip mat for the “Anti-skid grip”

Does anyone know where to get this or is there a BORG, Hobby Lobby or ??? alternative?

I believe Ordex is a European product. I’d be surprised if 3M doesn’t have an equivalent product.

You might want to look at the gripper built by DeLayne Peck to see what he used on his version … I believe it was a mouse pad.

The drawer liner for tool chest or 1/8” diaphragm rubber (really sticky stuff) works too! I got my diaphram rubber material at a local hardware store.

I used reclaimed material from a messed up grout float.

Ordex is a nonslip rubber mat that is used for yoga mats in the U.K. Almost any kind of nonslip rubber matting will do . 3 MM is about an 1/8 of an inch ,best I can figure , check with some of these Europeans on here they can tell you.
