Try It Before You Buy It: Ball Claw

WZZM 13's Lauren Stanton puts the Ball Claw to the test in this Try It Before You Buy It report.

Ball Claw

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WZZM) -- The Ball Claw is a three-pronged plastic holder that attaches to walls or outdoor posts that's ideal to keep sports balls from rolling away, or to display them.

Allyssa DeHaan, the 6'9 basketball standout for Grandville and leading shot blocker for MSU helped me test it out. We went to her parents' home where she honed her skills, and she showed us the unusual place she kept all of her basketballs-- a bush right next to her basketball hoop. It actually worked quite well. But, we wanted to test out the Ball Claw anyway.

We used an electric drill, and it easily went up with just 3 screws on a deck pole. The Ball Claw grabbed the ball easily, and held it in place. Allyssa liked how easily you could grab the ball, without having to dig through any kind of sports bin.

The Ball Claw is perfect for outdoor use, or a garage, and also to display special sports balls on a bedroom or den wall.

I found it online on various websites with prices ranging from $9.99-$19.99.
