    Grr-rrip blocks $4.00, get 'em while they last

    If you like the Gripper, but not the price take a look at these. My local store had 5 and I bought 3 on line for pick up, can't imagine it being a bad deal for $4. Knowing how Lowes does these things, the price may be quite a bit different at your store.

    Great deal but, not in my area ;-(

    But wait . . . they were available in a store that is not too far away; grabbed some.

    I followed the link. It showed my local store. $15.99 each. Not quite the deal you found for sure. Darn.

    You guys that are seeing the $16 price might want to keep checking. That was the price here, then it dropped all of a sudden. did notice some other stores went down to $8, and some went to $5....it must depend on the alignment of the planets or some such magic.

    Showing $24.98 here. I'll keep watch though.
    I'm supposed to respect my elders, but its getting harder and harder for me to find one now.

    Price at local stores was $25 and they had none in stock. Price at at a store about 20 miles away was $4 and they had 8 in stock. I bought 5.
    I'll probably end up spending much more though. The Salem NH Lowes is right next to Rockler.

    I'll swing by the local Lowes at lunch just to check....it's about 2 minutes away anyway.

    Agree that you need to check around. When you find the price you like, buy them online and select 'pick up in store'.
