How To Replace A Golf Club Grip
Replacing a golf club grip is a relatively simple process that can be done with a few tools. Here are the steps to replace a golf club grip:
- Gather your materials: You will need a new golf club grip, grip solvent, double-sided grip tape, a utility knife, and a clamp or vise.
- Remove the old grip: Use a utility knife to cut the old grip off of the club. Be careful not to cut into the shaft.
- Clean the shaft: Use a rag and some grip solvent to clean the shaft where the old grip was.
- Apply grip tape: Cut a piece of double-sided grip tape to the length of the grip. Remove the backing from one side of the tape and apply it to the shaft.
- Apply grip solvent: Pour some grip solvent into the new grip, and swish it around to coat the inside of the grip.
- Slide the new grip onto the shaft: Slide the new grip onto the shaft, making sure that it is aligned properly.
- Align the grip: Use your fingers to align the grip as you slide it onto the shaft. Make sure it is straight and in the correct position.
Note: It is important to follow the manufacturer's instructions for the specific grip and grip solvent you are using, as they may have different recommended methods or drying times.
