Who here uses straps and/or belts for deadlifting?

I seem to have got to the max I can lift without using these tools, but I just can't push past past a certain weight. I would love to be able to push a bit more without using straps etc. any tips on how to improve my grip because this is the main problem. It is getting a bit frustrating and now messing with my head I think.

Powerlifters DO NOT use straps! Use static holds, captain crushers or a plain old tennis ball to build grip. Also are you using a double overhand or mixed grip? I f overhand and you have large enough hands try using a hook grip.
