& tools required:- (1)
The Grips/Grip. (2) Stanley/Utility knife preferably with a hooked blade. (3)
Double sided 2” grip tape Grip solvent or regular white spirits. (4) If
possible a vice clamp for securing your clubs in a vice. (5) Paint tray
and newspaper. (6)Towel or clean rag.
a vice and vice clamp is not essential however it does make the job easier.
Snap the clamp onto the narrow part of the shaft then slide up for a snug fit.
tighten the vice sufficiently to secure the club in place. You can make your
own vice clamp by cutting a 4” Section from a garden hose then slitting
down one side – hey presto you’ve created a vice clamp!
your old grip and fitting tape - Secure
the club in a vice with the clamp then starting at the lip end of the grip cut
along the length to the butt end, then rotate the grip 180 degrees and make a
similar cut. Then remove the grip by pulling off each side like a banana
skin. It will be easier to remove the old fitting tape if you warm the tape
(paint stripping gun or whatever) then peel the tape off before wiping down
with white spirit or solvent to thoroughly clean. (Graphite shafts: - roll
back the lip of the grip in order to avoid scraping or damaging the paintwork).
the tape - Firstly
cut the tape to the same length as the grip then apply one edge of the 2” tape
strip lengthwise along the shaft starting at the butt end ensuring that you
overlap the butt by approximately ½”. Rotate the shaft through 180 degrees
rubbing your hand up and down on the backing paper to get the tape in place
before peeling off the backing paper and completing the job. The
overlapped portion at the butt end can then be pushed over to seal the shaft.
The mounted tape will be about ½” shorter than the grip, however
once the grip is pushed over the tape (during installation) it also pushes down
excess adhesive off the tape towards the end of the grip and this excess
will secure bottom of the grip. This is fine as trying to remove excess tape from the shaft after the
grip has been installed is nasty and messy job!
a new grip - Start
by placing a paint tray and newspaper under the grip mounting area. Cover
the vent hole at the butt of the grip with either your finger or a tee peg then
pour a liberal amount of solvent or white spirit into the grip. Pinch the lip
end shut then shake the grip to ensure the solvent covers the interior of the
grip thoroughly. Remove your finger or tee peg then pour the solvent from
the grip over the entire length of tape then quickly push the grip on making
sure to align the grip design with the club face. You will feel the shaft
butt up against the end of the grip. You may need to pinch the end of the grip
to open the mouth up wide enough to push onto the shaft. If you get any liquid
on the exterior of the grip or your fingers quickly remove it with the towel or
clean rag – it’s very difficult to keep control of the grip if your fingers are
wet and skidding around.
- Remove the
club from vice and set-up in the normal playing position to make sure that the
grip is on straight. If there are any alignment lines or marks on the front of
the grip, make sure they are rotated towards the front. Twist the grip to
achieve the desired alignment. Tip - look at your old grip to clue-in on
alignment. Rule of thumb is to start by looking at the butt end of the grip
where the trade name/model is and make sure this is not upside down!
Additionally if you look down the shaft from the head towards the grip this can
be helpful as there are sometimes faint lines running from top to bottom and
these can assist. Lastly make sure the grips are of uniform length by using the
first one installed as a guide. Wipe off any excess adhesive with a solvent
soaked rag. Ideally allow
about 10 hours for the grips to dry before using.
