How To Use Mueller Stickum On Football Gloves
Knowing how to use Mueller Stickum on football gloves can greatly increase your ability to catch the ball, but before learning how to use Mueller Stickum on football gloves, be sure your league or team allows it in play. In some cases use of any kind of grip enhancer is prohibited for football gloves. Mueller Stickum is a brand of grip enhancer used in a variety of sports. It is used in baseball to increase the ability to grip the bat, and in gymnastics to help enhance the grip on bars. If applied to football gloves, it can make it easier to catch and hold the ball, even in wet or otherwise sub-par conditions.
To treat your football gloves with Mueller Stickum, you will need:
- Choose the type of Stickum you wish to use. Mueller Stickum comes in an aerosol spray as well as a paste and a powder. For football gloves, the aerosol spray will probably be the best choice.
- Apply the Stickum to the gloves. Apply where it is most likely to help improve your ability to catch the ball--that is, on the surfaces of the palm and fingers that are most likely to make contact with the ball when you catch it. The amount of Stickum used depends upon the type of material from which your gloves are made and how sticky you want them to be. Start with a small amount, then add more if you feel you need an additional application.
Even if you are not allowed to use Stickum during a game, applying it during practices can help you gain confidence in your catching and improve your game when you are on the field. Mueller Stickum is designed not to damage the ball or the gloves, but you might want to test it on a small area of the gloves before making a full application.
