The actual question is: why do you feel the need for a resize grip?

Some context: the only reason the resize grip was introduced was
because stacking window managers (as opposed to tiling ones) didn't
cope well with themes using 1px window borders; since then, window
managers have added invisible resize areas around the window or they
have window borders larger than 1 pixel. For client-side decorations,
GTK+ will handle the invisible resize areas itself, but in absence of
a compositor, GTK+ will revert to a visible border with enough padding
to allow resizing.

What it is that you're trying to achieve?
