Dumbbell Handle Width and Diameter

The dumbbell handle width needs to be at least 4.5″ wide for Kettle Gryp® to fit. Most dumbbell handles are approximately 6.0″ wide. Some very light dumbbells may be less than 4.5″ wide.

The dumbbell handle needs to be less than 1.5″ at its thickest point. The foam insert inside the Kettle Gryp® will contour to both straight and curved dumbbell handles as long as the thickest part of the dumbbell handle is less than 1.5″.

Weight Shape


Some dumbbells with large or odd shaped weights may interfere with the handle of the Kettle Gryp®. Although the handle of the Kettle Gryp® is a snug fit, the Bowflex SelectTech 552 will fit with no interference from the weight plates. The Bowflex SelectTech 1090 will not fit the Kettle Gryp® when the large inner weight plates are selected.




Lightweight and compact, Kettle Gryp® travels easily in a carry-on or backpack so you can take your workout with you. 


Kettle Gryp® transfers quickly from one weight to another and has been designed to fit most dumbbell handles.


Kettlebells are expensive. Kettle Gryp® isn’t.

“Awesome product! Great idea! Thanks so much! I love mine & travel with it super easily as it fits in my carry-on & now I can be even more innovative in my hotel gyms.
Product feels solid while in use. The dumb bell does not slip or move at all within the handle. Thanks so much – this is a great addition, & almost necessity, to fitness toys to own.”

“Upon receiving my Kettle Gryps I immediately put them to use on some large grip dumbbells and they fit perfectly. Whereas I had a full set of dumbbells before, I now also have a full set of kettlebells thanks to Kettle Gryp! I especially like the wide handles as with a lot of kettlebells, the handles are very tight for bigger hands. Kettle Gryps are a great way to expand your exercise selection without the additional cost of buying new equipment. They are the perfect addition to any gym! I also like that Kettle Gryps are Made in America!”
