Unless you’ve been bitten by a radio-active arachnid (and your buddies call you “spidey”) an Anver’s hand suction cup is the way to go when changing a glass windshield without cracking it.
Hand suction cups like the Anver’s operate by either lever or pump action. After you press the cups onto a non-porous surface, you squeeze the levers together and the rubber pads clamp themselves securely to the surface by vacuum force. To release the suction, just flip back the levers.
It’s not an uber-cool web that shoots from your wrist but then again you don’t have to wear a spandex body suit to use one either.
The large grip and two cup design gives you control and balance over the object which are good things to have when handling glass. We’ve seen more than a few pros use them for a quick change out of auto glass; now we know why.
Street pricing starts at around $40.
