To call this a Hot Grip or Hot Pad is a travesty. Truly, this rectangular piece of leather awesomeness is as versatile as it is beautiful.
Ready for action, you can use it to grasp hot pots and pans without the fear of torching your skin. Or more passively, you could allow it to run interference between the aforementioned hot pot and that beautiful walnut dining table (or otherwise fancy countertop).
Legend has it, these are also useful around the shop, not only for the management of hot components, but the reverse as well... think condensation from that frosty beverage dripping onto your table saw. No more, I say!
Got a greasy part? Yep, works for that too. Got glue on your hands and want to keep that apron pristine? Well this baby snaps easily at hand, whether on an integrated towel ring or otherwise fabricated loop. Also works as a a placemat for small or delicate parts. And the grippy bottom surface makes for a nice little work surface for a goodly number of tasks.
And to expand its usefulness, we're offering four, yes count them four(!) different versions at the start. You're welcome.
Super basic, single layer and no snap. Tuck this one in your pocket and use as a shop rag or a placemat.
Ever so fancier single layer w/ snap.
Double layer, no snap. A veritable desk apron, as one might call it! Mousepad sounds good too.
Double layer, with glorious snapping action. This one really is the Cadillac right here, folks. Throw whatever you got at this one. Just be sure to tell us about it so we can spread the good word with the rest of the world.
