"With the discovery of Gripping Charms in 1875, however, straps and finger holes have become unnecessary, as the Chaser is able to keep a one-handed hold on the charmed leather without such aids."

The Gripping Charm (incantation unknown) is a charm that allows the targeted object to be more easily held.[1]


Discovered in 1875, the Gripping Charm revolutionised the design of the Quaffle, allowing Chasers to hold, throw and catch the ball with one hand, therefore eliminating the need for straps or finger holes.[1]
