You're going to want deeper fixture than that if possible. Ideally one that's deep enough that you can't grab the back edge of the board when jamming.

I built a crack-thing that I use like a hang board. It helped my off-fingers, ring-locks, and tight hands dramatically. It's pretty simple and cheap to make, too.





There's some good stuff on this thread, too. http://www.rockclimbing.com/...k%20machine;#2001177
