Seeking Electric Gripper for "Eccentric Load"

Dear Forum,
We are currently using a Schunk electric gripper that is not strong enough to lift 2.2 lbs "sideways loaded" as shown in my sketch, 8" from base of grips. I guess that's a 17.6 inch pound moment load.
My boss says nobody makes a larger gripper that he has seen. Who makes a larger gripper we could use? TOTAL newbie to this field of automation, any recommendations? Hope the pic went through.

Well, I looked up the specs and the gripper we are using works just fine. Shunck is a trusted name and we have a good one. Sorry about that!
