Lockons but still slip? I’ve never had that with lockons. I wouldn’t expect the hairspray trick to work in this case as internally those sort of grips are usually hard plastic- don’t know it that applies to ergons.
Spray glue might help, but I’d be taking lockons that don’t lockon back to the shop!
I tried hairspray to do this recently and have concluded that modern hairspray is not up to the adhesive standards of 1980’s hairspray. Probably too full of active lipozomes, science molecules and other things that create the effective appearance of salon style hair to be truly grippy.
2″ wide double sided masking tape (the beige stuff) applied to the bar lengthways and curled around.
Leave about an inch extra off the end of the bar, twist up to seal the hole in the end of the bar.
Fill grip with white spirit, pour over adhesive tape, slide on grip.
It’s how golf club grips are fitted.
You can build up extra layers of tape to increase the diameter of the grip.
REALLY?? What fill it up to the top?? Surely you’ll just end up with it all over the floor?
You might, I’d do it over a bucket or washing up bowl so I could re-use it. It’s only acting as an evaporating lubricant so shouldn’t get overly contaminated.
But yes, completely fill the grip to ensure the entire inner surface is wet, then tip the contents over the tape covered bar, over a bucket and slide the grip on with ease.
