The benefits of the Slide Spider® have been recognized by novice and advanced shooters, as well as law enforcement, to assist in increasing the margins of safety and confidence in the operation of their firearm.

    I have gotten more and more hand grip weakness. I found these “spiders” and added them to every gun that I own and boy, what a difference. I now can rack the slide on them all without difficulty. Love these!!

    WOW what a difference! I own a Sig Sauer P365 and love it but it’s one of the hardest guns to rack that I own. When I ran across these grips I thought I’d give it a try, am I ever glad I did. I put them on as soon as they came in and right away the difference is like night and day. A huge thank you to TWAW for having these available to order you’ve changed my shooting experience forever.

    I am very curious to learn how long it will actually stay on after several gun cleanings and possibly getting gun oil on it.
    Thank you for any replies!

    I wanted to love it! It does work! I just wish it came all the way down on the sides in the grooves. In the pictures above shows it comes all the way down. I have a glock 43.

    Great product! As with one other poster works extremely well in hot/sweaty conditions. Great grip/feel with and without shooting gloves.

    Just received my The TWAW Slide Spider and what a difference it has made! I had stopped trying to shoot my Sig Sauer P938 because I can’t rack it….that was before the slide spider. If you have a grip issue with your gun check this out!

    I am so happy I found this nifty device while browsing your website. I do have some hand/wrist weakness and needed help wth my Bodyguard .380. Received this today and applied it right away. The difference is truly remarkable!
    Will purchase another for my husband’s 9mm in case I ever need to fire it.

  8. Charlotte

    LOVE my spider! With weak hands, it’s just what’s needed to allow me to rack that slide reliably every time, when hot/sweaty, nervous, whatever.
    Had a male instructor tell me I “have to get that thing off the gun”, but couldn’t tell me why, so I ignored him.
    Can’t quite figure out how to avoid getting ANY cleaning supplies on it, but guess that’s why you ship more than 1 per package!

    In late 2016, I bought the TWAW slide spider for my Glock 42. I love it! It made a significant amount of difference in terms of making the slide pull a lot easier. Now I want one on all my regular carry guns and so, having just purchased a Glock 26 yesterday, I ordered the Glock doublestack spider. Recommend to all women and especially to those ladies who experience difficulty pulling on the slide due to hand strength. Thanks to TWAW for another great product!

    Ordered this on March 1st and it arrived today on March 4th!! I don’t have very much hand strength and was struggling to rack my Ruger LC9S.. Wow!! What a difference this has made!! I had my husband put one on as soon as it arrived and even he was impressed at the difference it made!! Well worth the price!! Thanks to TWAW for this wonderful product!!

    My wife has limited hand strength and while she could rack the slide on her edc Sig P938 it was difficult. I put one of these on it and it made it much easier for her to operate. Well worth the money.

    After struggling to rack my Ruger LCP, and almost selling it because of that, I decided to buy this Slide Spider. My husband laughed at me and said no way was it going to work. Well, I put it on the gun today and all I can say is that it is amazing. My husband was blown away by it too. I cleaned the gun well with the enclosed cleaning wipe, so I hope it stays on for a long time. It really is a fantastic product. Thanks!

  13. Becky

    Ordered this when I first saw it in your “store”. My Shield is very hard for me to rack due to lack of wrist strength. This “Spider” makes a world of difference. Love it!! It’s very easy to put on and is FANTASTIC!!! DONT HESITATE TO GET IT!!

  14. Leslie

    Went to practice today. That little itty bitty thing is amazing. Made all the difference. I’m back in the groove again.
    Nothing I can do about bone spurs in my thumb but now there’s a way around this.
    If strength is the problem honestly this is well worth the $20.
    I could kiss the person who came up with this!
