My Ergo grip straight broom handle VFG has broken at the two screw mounting hole locations where the grip base screws into the handguard. See pictures attached. It appears that the screws have simply broken at the thin plastic portion that retains the screws to the mounting plates inside the handguard.

Given this issue I've contacted ERGO through email (Both the Lifetime Warranty "Learn More" and the "CONTACT US" buttons do not work on the website, and the website is also not working when I attempt to register an account so I can submit a support ticket.) so I've simply replied to the original email from my order ([email protected]) when I ordered the vertical grip back in April 2023.

Can you folks give me some recommendations for handguard-mounted VFG's that won't break through the plastic holes like this? I'd like to retain my standard carbine handguards because I'm weird like that. Thanks.

You could add a picatinny rail if you insist on staying in 1999.

Yeah I didn't want to go this route but it's looking like I'm out of options...

Looks like I'm going the gangsta grip route.

Updated, ERGO sent me a replacement and also requested I send back the broken VFG for investigation. Sent it back yesterday.
