Golf Club Regripping Tape Installation: Driver and Putter


In this video tutorial and blog, Kurt Steen (a golfsmith for the last 15 years) reviews and demonstrates the installation of golf club regripping tape for a driver and putter using ¾ inch golf grip tape by Golf Tape Direct.

Tools you will need for the installation process:

  • Tension rack or vise
  • Solvent
Screwdriver (or item that will fit through the back of your grip)
  • Marker

Installation instructions using ¾” golf grip tape:

  1. Place your grip next to the shaft of your club

  2. Make sure the alignment on the grip is square with the face of the driver or putter and approximately ⅜ of an inch from the end of the shaft
  3. Take your marker and make a line on the shaft at the end of the grip so you know how far it needs to go on -- this will prevent stretching or not pushing the grip on far enough
Now tear your tape about eight inches longer than the length of the mark to the back of the shaft
  5. Place the tape at the start of your mark and rub it straight along the shaft folding it underneath when you get to the end of the shaft

  6. Press down the sides of the tape and make sure they are smooth

  7. Remove your tape backing
Then take your solvent and pour about a tablespoon into the grip
  9. Make sure you coat the inside of the grip well
Empty the grip by slowly running the grip along the tape covering the shaft making sure the tape becomes fully coated with solvent
  11. Put the base of your grip onto the shaft and push it up and over
  12. Align the flat part of the grip square with the top of the shaft and push it on straight up to the mark -- making sure you do not twist the grip

To complete the regripping process:

  1. Take your small screwdriver and punch it through the hole at the end of the grip making sure that air flows into the shaft to allow any remaining solvent to dry and keeping it from damaging the shaft integrity
  2. Take your club out of the vise and stand it upright so that any solvent that may be in the shaft will run down to the base

And that completes the golf club regripping tape installation using ¾ inch golf grip tape.
