I actually prefer the green or blue painters tape.  Albeit plain masking tape works just fine.  No solvent or double sided tape needed.  Super quick, clean and easy.

Nice video.
A few suggestions:
1.Easy to start a grip onto the shaft butt if you dip about 1/2" of the grip mouth in soapy water. It starts right onto the shaft!
2. When removing a grip you should cover the grip with a strong "protector tube" to prevent dwelling and bursting.
3. Get a new oil lubricated compressor with a tank. It will be quieter and not wear out!

Arnie,

I do use a tube when removing grips that have double sided tape.  I will also inject a touch of solvent or soapy water and use the grip remover tool from golfworks in conjunction with the air. I was kinda counting on ppl noticing the green tape.  There is no double sided green tape that I'm aware of.  As long as the grips are installed with normal masking tape, aka "buildup tape", there should be zero issues when removing them.

In regards to the compressor, I have several different ones, but prefer the small one b/c it is easily portable and only cost $39 at Canadian Tire, lol.  My other compressors are oil lubricated and weigh a ton.

God Bless
Jer

Nice video but please don't discount the point to Always...ALWAYS use a safety tube when removing grips. It's probably even more important to show the SAFE way of removing the grips when putting it out there in a how-to video.

New guys watching that could be in for a real dangerous treat with 80 psi and an old rubber grip....

Not trying to be a jerk, just trying to make a point.

Other than that, nice job Jer!

I can't get this to work. The grip always slips off on me. I sent a 7i down range once. Golf clubs really clank around with no grips on them.  Lol.

I've tried all different masking tapes. Green, blue regular. No dice.

It sounds like you are using too high of a PSI when putting them on.  This could stretch out the grip a little.  I actually use no tape at all under mine.  I use Feel full release grips and put them right onto the steel.  You need to be sure all the air is out of the grip before wandering off to the range and firing away........LOOK out down range!!!!!

As for the PSI I would say 20 and under.  20 may be a little on the high side.

I had several failures this summer which was a bummer.  It was very hot and maybe that had something to do with it, after the clubs had been in the trunk etc.  The grips were Premio's and at least 5 of them starting turning.  I have gone back to the old reliable grip tape, although I miss being able to remove the grips and save them.  It is much easier when you blow them on.  The grips had no issues for at least three of four months and then all of the sudden the 3 wood was first, which I rarely hit.  Then a wedge and then the driver.  Not good.  They didn't all fail on the same day.  The driver was about three weeks after the 3 wood.  That is when I decided to put tape under them all.

20-30 psi for rubber grips and I have used much higher to blow leather grips on.  Never had a failure after 3+ yrs.  Some of the softer compounds though do twist after many rounds...

Use hose, not a tube. Ever seen PVC explode from being over pressurized? Schedule 40 will burst rather easily, an that's what most people seem to use. Trust me, I saw a buddy take a bunch of stitches from that happening because he uses around 50 psi.

I set my regulator at 12 psi, works fine and no grips get stretched out.

I have mine set at 80 psi, but  don't use 80 psi.  I throttle it with the air gun.  12 psi should be more than suffice.  Once you become familiar with the process, you learn when to add air or use less depending how the grip is going on.

Maybe gqjeff or myself will do a vid of a grip exploding when not done properly, lol.  Also, grips like Nowon No. 1 etc can slip, but that is after a ton of rounds.  Pure grips are a pain to install if you plan to build them up.  Pretty much designed to be installed with no tape.

In the vid I used a lamkin 3 gen 60R and two wraps of tape.

God Bless

I install all grips with air and have had zero to slip on me personally. I am guessing it's the low air pressure not stretching the grips, which IMO is the reason some people see slippage.

If you are installing a grip and you choke the grip mouth closed you can stretch the grip no matter what the air pressure is used.
During installation you apply air while sliding the grip on. If once installed the job is done. Continue adding air only causes "grip flatulance" and tearing of the grip mouth.

The entire discussion concerning output PSI is filled with misinformation! If you are doing this operation properly you are using an air gun with a trigger. You add air by pulling the trigger. Apply short bursts of air. If you continuously apply air no matter what PSI you have adjusted the output to when removing a grip the grip will either break free of the shaft or expand to the point of a "violent failure" (burst with great force). If you are installing a grip with air there is little chance of a grip bursting unless you choke the grip mouth. Choke the grip mouth and the grip expands (stretches) but it usually doesn't burst! Stretching the grip will most likely lead to slippage later.
