Star Grip Installation Air Gun
The Star Grip Gun can be used with any air compressor to quickly install your Star grips without the need for any tape, solvent, or drying time. Less time, less mess, less waiting - just blow and go! Comes with a quick-connect installed so you can connect it to any air hose with a quick connect adapter.
Even the simplest 1-2 gallon compressor will work, all you need is 60-90psi air pressure to install and remove grips. You can view our grip installation video here: https://stargrip.com/pages/tapeless-instillation
Star Grip pioneered the tapeless grip installation method over 30 years ago. It's quick, simple, neat, and allows the club to be used immediately with no drying time! What makes our grips the perfect fit for tapeless installation is that we use the highest rubber content of any grip on the market, which allows for extreme elasticity with no risk of stretching or tearing. You can install the grips over old tape, on build up tape, or directly on the bare shaft. It's also environmentally friendly as you are avoiding harmful solvents, and it takes less than 10 seconds! For those of you who prefer the “old school” tape & solvent method, you can do that as well.
I bought a bunch of stuff on my transaction including the air gun. I just wanted to try and see what's easier for me, classic solvent or air gun. Like other reviewers and youtube, using air to get the old one off could be tricky sometimes. Additionally it can be tricky to get the new grip on as well. There seems to be an internal regulator or something as my compressor seemed to cycle frequently even when not in use. It seemed like it was leaking air out. I would put the gun on the grip, and sometimes without squeezing the trigger, the leakage on it would be too much and blow the grip out. If that didn't happen, just a small touch on the trigger was too much and would also blow the grip out. Fortunately that was removing the old grips. Although I did blow one of my new velvet ones out a little while trying to get it on. I just took some rope and wrapped it tight for a couple days. I actually forgot about it and like the following weekend or whatever I pulled it out and checked on it, and it seemed shrunk back to normal. I've been actually doing quite well with that club. I have an old school craftsman 2 gallon compressor, psi was set to 50. I had it set for 65 initially based on manufacturer website. I dialed it back though to try and find the internal regulator psi or stop air from seeping out, but found my tank at 50psi to work best for me. I think for me personally, I like the solvent method better. Just because I know I can get it all the way on no problem, and don't have to worry about blowing a grip out. It's airways good to have more tools in the garage.
Got the install gun with my new grips. Before putting new Star grips on I tried taking old grips an older practice club. While using the gun it was surprisingly easy. Getting old grip off, a little more challenging, but easier than scraping. Now time for new Star grips to go on. Very easy install, you don't need to have alot of air pressure to get a grip on.
Love the gun, Love the grips.
The Air Gun is amazing, what an easy way to change out grips. I don’t wear a glove, so I change grips often, excited to get my new star grips as well,
