Golf club grip tape removal instructions:

  1. First take the hook blade and place it just underneath the grip
  2. Pull it back firmly and slowly keeping control of the hook blade
  3. Peel the end of the grip open and back -- sliding it off the end of the shaft
  4. Now unwrap your grip tape -- peeling any existing tape off that may have split from the blade cutting it
  5. Take a small amount of solvent and pour it onto the rag
  6. Finish by wiping the shaft with the rag several times until it is clean

And that completes the golf club grip tape removal process.

Golf Club Regripping Tape Installation: Driver and Putter

Golf-Club-Regripping-Tape.png

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
  • 
Grip
  • 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
  4. 
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
  8. 
Then take your solvent and pour about a tablespoon into the grip
  9. Make sure you coat the inside of the grip well
  10. 
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.

Golf Grip Tape Installation

In this video tutorial and blog, Kurt Steen (a golfsmith for the last 15-years) reviews and demonstrates the golf grip tape installation process using the 2” grip tape roll by Golf Tape Direct.

Tools you will need for the installation process:

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

Installation instructions using the 2” golf grip tape roll:

  1. First secure your club by placing it into the vice or tension rack with the head of the club upright so the new grip will be straight when you put it on
  2. Place a sheet of golf tape on the club with approximately ⅜ of an inch hanging off the end of the shaft
  3. Run your fingers up and down the shaft to make sure the tape goes on smooth
  4. Tear the backing off of the tape
  5. Twist the end of the remaining grip tape and push it into the end of the club shaft
  6. Take your grip and align it approximately ⅜ of an inch off the end of the shaft
  7. Take your marker and mark the club where the end of the grip is so you will know how far the grip needs to go on
  8. Then take your solvent and pour about a tablespoon into the grip
  9. Make sure you coat the inside of the grip well
  10. Then pour the remaining solvent onto the tape covering the shaft -- make sure you coat the tape all the way to the mark you made earlier
  11. Align the grip and push it up and over the shaft
  12. Push the grip fully onto the club shaft -- up to or past the line you marked in order to ensure your grip is attached to the end of your club

To complete the golf grip installation process:

  1. Slowly remove the club from the vice
  2. Take your screwdriver and punch a hole into the end of the grip making sure that it has an open space to allow air to circulate down the shaft -- this prevents condensation and allows the solvent that has run down the grip to dry
  3. When complete -- set your club upright with the head facing up to allow any remaining solvent to run back out of the shaft

And that completes the golf grip tape installation process using the 2” grip tape roll.
