About Our Holds

We are in the process of redesigning our finger board system! Please stay tuned!

New Quick-Change Finger Board System

The CrimpWerks QC (Quick-Change) Finger Board System is a design upgrade of our legacy bolt-on system. Rather than the holds themselves bolting onto the plate, a french-cleat latching system allows for the QC holds to "clip on" quickly and easily, without the need for any tools. Each hold is bi-directional with hold surface(s) on the both sides of the hold. With this system, it is quick and easy to flip sides of the hold being used, or attach another kind of hold from the QC hold selection.

Current we offer four different holds, with plans to introduce more holds in the future.

18mm / 10mm / 8mm Edge

This robust beginner/intermediate hold has 3 flat very positive crimpy edges, good for developing core finger strength. A large 18mm deep edge one side is a great platform to practice max hangs or take on heavier weights on a resistance platform (such as a cable weight machine.) More advanced 10mm and 8mm deep edges on the other side allow for technical development of finger strength on smaller surfaces, especially useful using sub-bodyweight resistance provided by a cable weight machine, resistance bungee, or assisted counter-weight.

The edges are inclined 8 degrees to account for the free rotational moment of the mounting base plate when it is hanging from an attachment point. This surfaces will be roughly level when force is applied to hold.

 

14mm / 8mm / 6mm Edge

A more advanced alternative than 18mm/10mm/8mm hold, this hold has 3 smaller but still flat very positive crimpy edges, good for developing technical finger strength. The largest surface on one side is a 14mm deep edge, which can serve as an intermediate edge or warmup surface for the smaller edges on the other side. The more advanced 8mm and 6mm deep edges provide a greater challenge for those seeking very technical finger strength training.

This hold is particularly well suited to sub-bodyweight resistance platforms for those wanting to increase finger strength and endurance on small surfaces, but are not yet able to hang with full body weight.

The edges are inclined 8 degrees to account for the free rotational moment of the mounting base plate when it is hanging from an attachment point. This surfaces will be roughly level when force is applied to hold.

 

20mm Flat Slop / 10mm Pocket Crimp

This dual-purpose hold features a flat, 20mm deep slope angled downward at 15 degrees on one side, and an "organic" non-flat slightly pocketed 10mm crimp hold on the other. It is a great hold for those wishing to train on both positive and non-positive surfaces. The 10mm crimp side is designed to closer mimic the irregular non-flat surface features one might expect from real rock, and has a very nice positive feel to it.  The sloper side is non-positive, but it's size and grippy texture instill plenty of confidence.

 

15mm Rounded / Flat Slope 

 

The more technical sloping surfaces of this hold are ideal for those who wish to focus on smaller, non-positive holds. At 15mm deep, one side is a flat surface angled downward at 15 degrees, and the other is a rounded surface with a radius of roughly 7mm. Both are challenging holds that are great training tools to develop confidence and technique with small sloping non-positive holds.
