How To Install Rubber Golf Grips
Learning how to install rubber golf grips can help improve your comfort while playing your favorite game. Rubber grips offer the advantages of comfort, a slip-proof surface and an overall better grip on your club. It’s easy to install your new rubber golf grips with the right set of tools and just a little bit of time and patience. If you think you’re ready to install your new rubber golf grips, than take a look at these set of items.
To install your new rubber grips you will need:
- Golf club
- Rubber grips
- A couple of towels
- A heat source
- An adhesive
Remove your old golf grips. If your golf club is already missing its old grips, then you’re ready to move on to the second step. If not, place your golf club within your vice grip. Make sure to use adequate padding between your club and the vice to reduce friction.
- Next, use a heat source, possibly an old hair dryer, and place the heat over your old grip. Once you’ve adequately heated your old golf grip, carefully remove the old grips.
- Prep your golf club and rubber grips. Place your golf club within the vice with adequate padding between the vice grips and your actual club. Before placing your adhesive on the club, make sure you clean any old excess glue off your club from the old grips.
- Place a couple of drops of adhesive within your rubber grips, super glue works excellent for this project. Next, place a couple of drops of adhesive on your golf club. Now, carefully slide the new rubber grips into place over the golf club. Make sure you slide it into place exactly where your old grips were placed to insure they’re in the right location.
If you have any excess glue, clean it off your grip and club at this time with a towel. Try and do this quickly, or your adhesive may dry hard and ruin your comfortable rubber grips. At this point, you can use your heat source and evenly run it over your rubber grips to make sure the adhesive dries. You should leave your club in an upright position and let it dry for at least twenty hours to make sure it’s adequately dry. After this period, get out there and try out your new rubber grips!
