2) Make sure your fingers are not pressing on the thumb, but pulling on the side of it.
3) Grab the bar as though you're using a normal grip and make sure you're not pinching the skin on the palm of your hand. Now remove your thumb and first 2 fingers from the bar and push the bar deep into the web between the thumb and forefinger. Get as much thumb around the bar as you can, then hook your first 2 fingers around the thumb, not on top of it. Most of the pressure will be from the middle finger as it's the longest. If you're pinching the skin on the palm of your hand re-adjust.
4) Tape your little finger below the first knuckle. This is the finger most prone to slipping, so taping it will reduce the chances of tearing a callous.

Yeah I like to play around with different grips on lighter weights too.
But when it gets heavy, you need to go to a grip you can trust.
