Installation

SALTY GRIPS INSTALLATION

Salty Grips should be installed by an experienced member of the golf industry—a retailer, PGA professional, or club fitter—using a stabilized gripping station. Although incredibly durable once supported by the putter shaft, cork grips are fragile and easily broken prior to installation…Do Not Bend!

SALTY GRIPS DIMENSIONS

  • Weight: 40 grams (Mid-Plus); 80 grams (Oversize)
  • Length: 10.75" (both)
  • Outer Diameter: 1.15" (Mid-Plus); 1.5" (Oversize)
  • Core Diameter: .61" (both)

STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS

Step 1 Start with a clean putter shaft—remove existing grip and all tape before installing.
Step 2 Measure the diameter of your putter shaft at the butt end and also the diameter of the shaft 10.75” down from the butt end (where the grip ends) with a shaft gauge.  Putter shafts vary in shape and size.  Many will have a taper that needs to be accounted for with build-up tape.  Salty Grips have a non-tapered cylinder core of 0.61 inches.  For a perfect fit, the entire gripping area of the putter shaft should be built up with tape to a consistent cylinder of 0.60 inches.
Step 3 Spray grip solvent onto the taped shaft.  It is not necessary to fill the grip with solvent.  Covering the grip tape with solvent is all that is needed for installation.
Step 4 Very slowly slide the grip down the shaft, being sure to support the butt end with the palm of your hand – do not slam the grip down the shaft – too much force can rupture the butt cap (it’s attached with a very strong epoxy, but was once a separate piece).  A club vise or re-gripping station is vital during installation.
Step 5 Align the grip as necessary and allow it to set for a few hours before use.  Note that Salty Grips do not twist torsional like a rubber grip and will go on very straight.  Align the grip as straight as possible before sliding on for easier install.
Step 6 As preferred, adjust and refresh the natural feel of your grip with 100-200 grit sandpaper (100 for more texture, 200 for less).
