GRIP INSTALLATION GUIDE
Excited with your newly purchased grips? Great! Proper installation will allow you to enjoy maximum benefits the grips have to offer without voiding the manufacturer warranty.
Before proceeding with the installation information, please take note of the following:
IMPORTANT NOTE : Do *NOT* allow solvents to contact with the grip's exterior leather surface. Depending on the solvent that you use, it could alter the surface significantly including color change. We recommend using Air-Based, Rubber Cement, and Brampton HF-100 Grip water based solvent methods to install the leather grips.
SOLVENT : We recommend using a *WATER BASED* solvent.
CLEANING : Do *NOT* use any leather treatments, solvents or chemicals. Use only clean water with a damp sponge or cloth.
TEMPERATURE : It is important to allow the grips to reach room temperature to allow optimum flexibility during installation to avoid damaging the grips.
WARRANTY : Improper grip installation will void manufacturer's warranty. If you are not an experienced grip installer, it usually is safer to go to local golf shops as they most likely have the proper tools and supplies to have the grip installed.
ALLIGNMENT : The winding tension for the leather places a slight torque on the grips. When fitting a wrapped grip to any shaft, if there is any clockwise rotation during installation, it is necessary to repeat a degree of anti-clockwise rotation at the collar end of the grip which will assist in the aligning of the logo or reminder rib back to square with the face of any club.

What you will need to install:
|Step 1: Position the golf club in a vinyl shaft clamp and place it in a vise. Point the club head straight up.|
|Step 2: Use either hooked blade razor knife, sheetrock or carpet knife to cut through the old grip and peel away the sides to remove the grip. For your safety, we recommend using the hooked blaze razor knife. Try to keep the blade parallel to the shaft during the cutting motion.|
|Step 3: Use the straight-edge knife or heat gun to peel off the old tape. Alternatively, use label removing solvent to clean the remaining tape. Make sure there is no burrs or sharp edges from the butt end to avoid tearing the grip.|
|Step 4: Apply standard grip tape to the shaft. Use enough tape to cover the length of the grip and extend 0.25" over from the butt end of the shaft to close the shaft opening. We do not recommend applying more than 2 tape layers. Do not leave any gap on the covered area.|
|Step 5: Position a drip pan under the shaft.|
|Step 6: Spray a small amount of HF-100 on the grip tape evenly and inside the grip.|
|Step 7: Push the grip into the shaft from the taped end. Use one hand to gently pull the grip on to the shaft, and the other hand to guide the grip. Place good care to avoid bending the grip as this dislocate the strapping or tear the underlisting. In the case of strapping dislocation, if the underlisting is not torn, the strapping can be re-tensioned back to normal. Put on right-handed grip with a clockwise motion.|
Step 8: To position the grip correctly, counter rotate both ends to align the cap and grip logos with the club face. If applicable, position the grip rib facing down and the logo straight up.
Step 9: Wipe off excess HF-100 with a dry cloth. Allow at least 15 minutes to dry.
