Tools and Materials You'll Need to Install New Grips
Gather materials needed to regrip a golf club

The first step to installing new grips on your golf clubs is to gather the necessary tools and supplies.

(Editor's Note: If you're the do-it-yourself type, you might prefer regripping your golf clubs yourself, rather than paying someone else to install new grips. Over the following pages, Kevin Redfern, a European Clubfitter of the Year, walks us through the step-by-step process of changing golf grips. This process does involve working with some sharp tools and some chemicals, so take all the necessary safety steps while working on your regripping.)

Gather Tools to Begin Regripping Clubs

To regrip golf clubs, you'll need the following materials:

1. The new grips you'll be using.

2. A tee.

3. A bench vise (not essential, but it will make things easier).

4. A rubber shaft holder to cradle the shaft, protecting it from damage, while the shaft is clamped in the vise.

5. Double-sided grip tape.

6. Scissors.

7. A grip tape scraper.

8. A utility knife with a hooked, rather than a pointed, blade. A pointed blade can damage graphite shafts.

9. Grip solvent placed into a squeeze bottle.

10. A container to catch the solvent, which you'll be pouring over the shaft.

11. A cloth or old rag.

That may sound like a lot, but some of these are household items. And the specialized items can be purchased from most clubmakers or repair shops, or ordered from many component companies. (next step)
