    grab is similar to reach for & hold.
    Grab some sweets from the jar, if you want.
    Grab him as run runs past you, otherwise we will loose him,
    Grab that shovel & help dig.

    grip is similar to hold tightly (with a hand or arms)
    Grip the handle firmly as the cycle may bounce on the road.
    .
    A grab is like a claw. This is like those machines in games parlours that you make the hand-thing pick up a prize, like a soft toy or something for the lady.

    A grip is like a handle that you hold onto, usually to make sure you do not slip. The soft area on the end of a bicycle handlebar is a grip.
