How to Install Putter Grips

Follow our step by step guide

Materials Needed:

  • – Mineral spirits (use this solvent only)
  • – Double sided grip tape
  • – Utility knife
  • – 1” masking tape
  • – Rag
  • – Water
  • – Vise (if available)

NOTE: A vise is helpful, but not necessary.

Step 1: Use a utility knife to remove the existing grip and tape. Clean the shaft with mineral spirits.

Step 2: If the putter shaft is .580 in diameter, additional build-up of masking tape is suggested at this point. Then, apply approximately 11.5 inches of double-side grip tape to the shaft, leaving approximately a 1/2” overhang at the top of the shaft. Tuck the tape hanging over into the shaft.

Step 3: Generously apply mineral spirits over the tape and inside the grip. Hold a finger over the air hole and the base of the grip and shake well to distribute the mineral spirits.

Step 4: Pour the excess mineral spirits from the grip over the tape on the putter shaft.

Step 5: Taking care to align the grip with the club face using the center line as a guide. Push the grip quickly onto the shaft until it is completely secure against the shaft end.

Step 6: If you used a vise, remove the putter at this point and make any final alignment adjustments then rinse with water and wipe clean. Ideally, allow to dry for 24 hours. RINSE with water and wipe dry.

The PALMBIRD putter grip creates a really stable putting motion. All you have to do is put it on line and watch the putts drop. If you want to putt better and with more consistency, get a PALMBIRD and watch your golf scores DROP too!
