This is the Standard Gripper Kit A, a simple and durable robotics kit that is great for "getting a grip" on pretty much any robotics project! Designed for use with any standard size Hitec or Futaba servo, the gripper kit is easy to assemble and requires only a Phillips Head Screwdriver. This Standard Gripper is capable of opening an impressive 5" wide, has an overall body dimension of 5" long by 3" wide, and offers both 0.77" and 1.5" hub patterns for easy mounting on Actobotics components.
Actobotics is a robotics building system based around extruded aluminum channels, gears, precision shafts, and ball bearings. Thanks to the two standardized hole patterns, nearly all Actobotics components can be intuitively connected together. The wide range of components makes building complex electromechanical prototypes or finished projects a reality.
Note: This kit does NOT include a servo. Check the Recommended Products section below for great standard size servo options.

Works exactly as expected, for a very affordable price. Shipping was fast as usual.
Nice gripper kit, i used it with my robotic arm project
Big gripper for the price. Only modification i would put is rubber on the gripper to get A bit more grip on some objects!
