This is the easiest DIY repair for one of the most annoying golf club issues

Published

on

One of the most annoying things that can happen to a golf club is also one of the easiest things to fix—a rattle in the shaft.

There are several reasons why this occurs, including loose epoxy, broken tip weight, or even a small piece of metal from the assembly process. There is a specific tool designed to let you access whatever is stuck in the shaft through the grip without having to cut it off, but for the serious DIYer’s out there you can make one yourself with a screwdriver and a small piece of an old steel shaft.

Check out the video below for a deeper explanation, and the quick step-by-step on how to make your own tool.

Build your own tool

  1. Cut a small piece from a used taper tip shaft just over an inch long and sand down all the rough edges.
  2. Use a Phillips screwdriver size No.3 to hold the shaft piece just like the tradition store-bought tool
  3. Follow the steps just like in the video and you’ll have the rattle out in no time. NOTE: unlike the store-bought tool, there is no flat washer style pice on the end so be sure to only insert the shaft piece far enough it to access inside of the shaft (see below), or else you will end up with a bigger problem—a piece of old old shaft rattling around in your club.

    Add some new epoxy above the hosel, move ferrule back into place, wipe clean, and let it cure.
