Setex Grips & Pads – Gaming Grips, Earbuds Grips & Eyeglass Nose Pads

Nowadays, most everyday items are manufactured both with their utility as well as with a user’s comfort in mind. However, while the materials used for manufacturing those items which you’d normally use throughout your daily routine can grip well to dry skin, if your skin happens to get sweaty or oily, then those same items become slippery and consequently harder to utilize, as you’re no longer able to have a solid grip on them. Now, problems with a sweaty or oily skin can include just about anyone, whether that’s console gamers who’s palms tend to become sweaty during long gaming sessions, people who wear earbuds or eyeglasses during workouts, or even people who wear those same items while working on hard jobs that require physical labor. Nevertheless, a company called Setex has recently developed the Setex Grips and Pads, which can be used to fix any slippery-grip issues related to sweaty and oily skins.

The Setex Grips and Pads consist of a range of grip-focused everyday item-attachments that all utilize a patented gecko-inspired anti-slip technology to mimic a geckos’ fibrillar microstructures in order to ultimately provide users with a natural and unprecedented grip along with the best possible comfort for everyday items like gaming grips from console controllers, a pair of earbuds, or even a pair of eyeglasses.

The company’s patented gecko-inspired anti-slip technology closely bio-mimics the microscopic fibrillar setae on a gecko’s toes, which is exactly what helps these small and unique reptiles to climb just about any surface and completely defy gravity.

By utilizing that same patented gecko-inspired anti-slip technology, Setex’s wide range of Grips and Pads are cleverly engineered to ensure people can get a maximum performance while utilizing everyday items such as gaming grips from console controllers, their earbuds, or even a pair of eyeglasses. Thanks to that, Setex’s Grips and Pads can ultimately provide you (as well as any of your family and/or friends) with high-quality, highly-gripping and super-adhesive solutions for all of your everyday items that ultimately allows those same items to stay in place so that you can use them comfortably and with perfect control.

We’ll now talk a little bit more about each of Setex’s different types of Grips and Pads, which include Setex’s Thumbstick Grips, Setex’s Controller Grips, Setex’s Earbud Grips, and Setex’s Eyeglass Nose Pads, for which the company was kind enough to send us a sample of each product for us to review.
