    Default Blakemore brush grippers ?

    Anyone know where to get a Blakemore Brush Gripper?

    I think they may have quit making them.

    Anyone wanna sell me theirs?

    It would appear that the Blakemore Brush Gripper is no longer being made. However, there are "other" versions that work ... such as this : Baker Brush and Boat Anchor | Bass Pro Shops



    And for the DIY guy ... a heavy duty spring clamp or even the "gator" grips of an old worn out set of jumper cables and some nylon twine could make a reasonable substitute.

    I figured that was the case. Durn it.

    Do the Baker Brush Anchors work as well as the Blakemores?

    Only one good way to find out, and at $5.00 it won't break the bank. Maybe you would be kind enough to report back as to how well they work for you?

    Got one that has been in the boat for years. Don't use much but still holds good.

    They are a little less "grippy" and the grip opening (claw) isn't as big ... but, a buddy of mine used them in his boat, and they worked OK as long as you could get the prongs around a branch. If not, just wrap the line around it and hook the grip to the line.

    User update: the baker brush anchors do not work as good as the Blakemore brush grippers.
    The sliding ring breaks and if the reeds, lily pads or branches are too small the thing will flip and release.
    Certainly, someone could make a better product to replace the Blakemores!
