Mace Training for Mountain Biking: Hindu Warrior Training for the Trail
I think that they are better than nothing but they are not as specific for mountain bike grip strength and the Mace 360 or KB Swing. The reason is that grip strength is specific to how you build it and the type of reactionary grip strength you need on the bike is different than the constant grip strength you need for those devices. The hand position is different as well as the fact that you are moving your hand/ forearm to keep the ball going, none of which resembles the grips demands of mountain biking. Again, they are better than nothing than but unless you are adding them in because you are bored and have the time to kill I can think of a lot better use of your training time. You could also do some Brazilian Jiu Jitsu or indoor rock climbing/ bouldering as a great way to build your grip strength endurance.

Video: More Movement Tips to Help Your Cornering
Two things to keep in mind. First, I said in the video that you can do this technique and corner properly with either foot forward, it is just easier to learn how to shift your hips when you can ride switchfoot. You'll always have a foot you prefer to have forward and that's teh foot you'll have forward when pushing at 100% but you should be able to ride switchfoot since it can help facilitate this technique. Second, if there was nothing to this whole switchfoot thing then why can I predict with almost 100% accuracy which way a rider has trouble cornering by which foot they favor riding forward with? If you prefer riding with your right foot forward then you probably have trouble cornering to the left, if you prefer your left foot forward then you probably have trouble cornering to the right. Obviously there is something in the foot position that biases you towards being able to corner one way or the other or else you wouldn't see this. And there are a lot of other reasons to learn to ride switchfoot, this is just one based on my experience and what I know about how the human body moves and how we can apply that movement to the bike.
