Really clever and well designed workout tool
I can't believe nobody came up with this earlier, such a great solution to a seemingly simple problem. I workout at a couple gyms that either don't have kettlebells or are missing important sizes. I also travel a lot and hotels never seem to have them, so if my crossfit workout calls for them in the workout, I'm out of luck. This thing is a must-have in my gym bag and my suitcase from now on.
I was worried about the durability of a plastic handle, but I accidentally dropped this one on the concrete outside in the middle of my WOD with a 50# dumbell, and it was completely fine (other than the scuff I put on it). So far I've tried it on quite a few different types and brands of dumbells (Rogue, Ivanko, York, etc.) and it has worked great on all of them. Truly a great design, and I like the fact that it's actually manufactured in the U.S. That's a rare commodity these days, especially at such a reasonable price.
The owners of one of my gyms saw me with this thing and decided to buy a bunch for the gym. If this company makes it on Shark Tank or something, I think you'll start seeing these everywhere, kind of like the TRX explosion, so I recommend getting it now ahead of the wave and you can say you were a trendsetter!

Innovative. Easy to use.
Update: I now enjoy this device, after having purchased, here on AlumiGogo, and received a pair of Humanx Arm Guards.
Pro: lightweight, strong and flexible
Con: needs a good set of arm guards for comfort
This is wonderful device to swap out dumbbells of various weights in performing different exercises. What I soon realized, however, is that when I upped to a 20# dumbbell, my forearm was getting impacted with various exercises, as I attempted to maneuver my arm and the weight . I had to stop immediately, until I shop for wrist guards. Since I do not have a gym membership and never have had one, I had no idea that this exercise would affect my forearms. Since I believe that the Kettle Gryp has promise to provide me with a Great workout, I will order wrist guards soon. An update shall be forth coming.
on 2017-09-11 Smart design - works great!
This thing is genius. It works for all kinds of dumbbells, and it makes it so I don't have to buy any kettlebells for home use. But the real benefit is that I can take it with me to gyms when I travel or even other gyms like at work where they will never buy kettlebells but they might have a decent dumbbell set. The plastic seems strong and the rubber in the grip seems durable. I read another review that talked about how smooth the handle is as a negative thing but I think it's great for dynamic movement. I bought mine to take to work where they have all the dumbbells one could want but no kettlebells. Now I essentially have a kettlebell for every weight I could ever want. Kettle Gryp

Great for travel and home.
As a traveling professional, what an amazing light weight product that enables a kettle bell workout in any hotel gym. What I like, is that the Kettle Gryp is more robust than anticipated and that it works with a wide range of dumbbells. Therefore, unlike other exercise equipment you only need to pack the Kettle Gryp for a trip. At home, it expands my workout routine by adding kettle bell exercises. Highly recommend!

Genius design and price is right.
I bought the Kettle Gryp primarily for travelling and using at hotel gyms. I'm blown away by the quality and design. This snaps right onto my pro-style dumbells at home and feels and functions like a kettle bell. The clamp and grip were well designed function flawlessly. For 35 bucks I now basically have kettle bells from 15-55 lbs at home and on the road.

Love my KettleGryp!
The KettleGryp is perfect for my at-home workouts. I don't have a set of kettle bells, so the KettleGryp does the job. I can do my HITT workouts and easily transition between the dumbbell and kettle bell sets. The KettleGryp is sturdy and well-designed. Definitely satisfied with my purchase. It will be traveling with me on my next trip!

This is perfect! My gym only has one set of kettlebells ...
This is perfect! My gym only has one set of kettlebells and they are always being used. I was able to get through my workout and I actually liked that I had more weight options with the dumbbells. Super easy to use too. I wish it came in more colors!

A great alternative to those that incorporate a kettle ball to their workout regimen!

Great Gear Item for the Road Warrior Fitness Guy
I've been looking for a product like this for a while. My career requires me to be a road warrior travelling every week Monday-Thursday and staying at hotels. Most hotels have at least dumb bells, but very few have kettle bells. This worked like a charm and I was able to bang out kettle bell swings no problem.
I did find a competing product but never bit the bullet and bought it. It is made out of cast iron, weighed nearly 8 lbs., and cost around $150. I found this product on AlumiGogo and not only is it dramatically cheaper, it is plastic and easily fits in my airline roll-a-board carry on.
Product feels solid while in use. The dumb bell does not slip or move at all within the handle. Time will tell if it’s durable.
Between this product and the TRX Go, I have a portable gym that fits into my carry on and allows me to have a great workout even if I’m stuck in hotel with a terrible gym.

Surprised how well it worked!
I was a bit skeptical of this product, but I was pleasantly surprised!
It worked well with my dumbells. Basically, I wanted to do the kettlebell swing.
Since my dumbells are adjustable, I can adjust weight as well.
