I got it! I got it! I got it! I don't have it!

Following the numerous recommendations here for Starting Strength, I've been at it for a month or so, and have joined a proper weight lifting club as well. But is there a similarly simple program for grip strength?

I'm still on low weights, but already at a 90kg deadlifting my grip is slipping. Instead of doing a reverse hold I'd rather increase my hand strength, so am curious what programs my fellow mefites have employed for this purpose. I've seen some Tubious of CoC grippers and others, and there are a bunch of exercises all over the place, but I'm looking for something simple to follow (like SS) which might not be perfectly tailored to exactly my hands but works well enough to be worthwhile. Crushing soda cans optional.
