Improves Performance

Our Fat Grip Adapter Set will increase the level of difficulty of grasping the dumbbell handles. This will improve your grip and strengthen your forearms. This set is perfect for trainers who feel they could use a little more challenge in their dumbbell routine.


At first glance, these adapters may seem to be nothing more than a pair of plastic handles, but they are produced from high-quality molded plastic that can prove to be a worthy lifelong companion to your Quick-Lock adjustable dumbbells.

Comfortable and Convenient

Not only do these fat grip adapters increase the circumference of your handles, but they also improve your grip and comfort thanks to their knurling. Forget about using gloves that take up more of your time to wear and remove, not to mention wash after every use. Just use these fat grips every time you need to lift your dumbbells. Each set comes with a pair of adapters to be used on two dumbbell handles.


Aside from our Quick-Lock Adjustable Dumbbells, these fat grip adapters can also be used with our IM2000 lifting bar. They are available in 1.5” and 2” diameter wide sizes. Note: These fat grips will only fit our current model of Quick-Lock Dumbbell handles. It will not work with our older Quick/Change design dumbbells or when the new Heavy Handle add on weights are in use.

Easy to Attach and Remove

Our Fat Grip Adapters attach easily over the Ironmaster Quick-Lock adjustable dumbbell chrome handles and they are just as easy to remove. Each set comes with four screws and hex nuts for a hassle-free installation. You just need a #2 Phillips or small flat-head screwdriver to connect the two halves of each grip by their screw holes. Make sure to align both parts properly so that the tongue and groove on the edges meet. Be careful not to over-tighten the screws.

They are sold as a pair (for two dumbbell handles) and are available in 1.5″ or 2″ diameter size. They also fit the IM2000 lifting bar! Made from high strength molded plastic with real knurling, they are easy to bolt on to the chrome handles or remove when you want to go back to the standard grips simply using a Phillips screwdriver. Note: These grips only fit the current model Quick-Lock Dumbbell handles and will not fit the older design Quick/Change.

    4 pieces of hard plastic for the 1.5 inch sleeve. The small nuts could have been embedded in the plastic. Instead, one must fumble with them to get bolt and nut to meet. 1-2 millimeter gap between the 2 halves on both sides. Entirely too much paying $35. $15 might have been a fair price. Disappointing quality and poor value from what is otherwise a company that serves a quality product. Cannot recommend these sleeves

    These adapters are just ok. The 1.5″ is a good diameter and is definitely more comfortable than the standard grip without adapters, but the plastic used feels very cheap and doesn’t have a very precise fit around the handle. There’s a sizable gap where the two halves come together, large enough (and there’s enough give in the plastic) to pinch your palms/fingers a bit when you grip the dumbbells. I feel like $35 is overpriced for what you get. Based on the awesome quality and function of the Superbench and Quick-Lock Dumbbells, I expected more from IronMaster on these adapters.

    The Ironmaster dumbbell grip for me was a bit rough to handle (the bar was too thin and the knurling was sharp so I had to use gloves) so I bought these on a whim. So glad I did. I realize they are just plastic handles, but the grip fits my hands better and I no longer need to use gloves with my lifts. I consider them a must have and always leave them on.
