I don’t think Dan Salas is involved with the LG Hanger. He still sells his hanger, but you can’t order online; you have to call his office.
The co-inventors of the LG are Dr. Richard Howard and Marlon Folden.
The way Marlon Folden invented the LG is he was a user of the Grip, and improved upon the same basic principle. He attempted to tell the people at Grip System about his improvements, but they weren’t interested. The main problem with the Grip is that the soft parts are very thin. This allows the company to keep selling replacement parts. The Grip also isn’t designed to go over 8 lbs. Dr. Ric also made a vacuum hanger prototype and they were basically the same, but Marlon’s was more professional and capable of being reproduced in his shop.
They are currently available to order, but their website isn’t set up yet so you would need to email Dr. Ric or PM him through PEGym.
Mine comes in the mail later today and I’m anxious to try it.
