What is GripGrip? It's a highly flexible and stretchy rubber tape that when applied properly to a cricket bat handle, will stop the grip moving. GripGrip has no adhesive, it simply binds to itself, making it easy to remove leaving no sticky residue.GripGrip is not however a cure all, in some circumstances it might fail to hold the grip. Perhaps your binding is unstable or dirty or the grip might be old.
- Start off with your bat grip rolled down the handle.
- Making sure your hands are clean, roll your grip towards you by 3" (7.6cm). Check that the binding is in good condition, if the twine is loose, GripGrip will not work.
- Remove approximately 4" (10.2cm) of tape and cut with scissors.
- Peel off the backing
- Pin the GripGrip with your thumb approximately 1" up the binding. Now pull firmly making the GripGrip stretch and go thin.
- Wind the tape around the handle, laying it on top of the first layer, overlapping until it covers approximately 2" (5cm) up the handle.
- Securing the final part of the GripGrip, apply pressure on top of the already applied GripGrip. Hold for 30s allowing for it to bind to itself.
- Now simply roll the grip down handle to it's normal position and GripGrip is applied! Allow 10 minutes for the GripGrip to set before use.
Note: In some playing conditions such as extreme heat or players fitting multiple grips, apply another band of GripGrip further up the handle. Some batsmen prefer GripGrip applied to the top and bottom of the handle, this provides an extra secure grip.
