Popular Questions about Hockey Grips

Hole grips can be applied with both methods, while Fabric and Rubber grips can be applied only with Heat Gun

If you don't have personally the heat gun, there is an easy solution. Each and every ice rink will have them, because it is frequently used to instal end plugs, so ask for the heat gun in your home ice rink!

It depends on how big is the knob of the stick, if it is bigger than 4.2CM in diameter you will not be able to use it over the knob, however still the grip can be installed on the stick part, afterwards applying over it the knob with tape.

It is also possible to apply RocketGrip over already existing tape job, with doing so RocketGrip will shrink and fit in form of your old tape job, this is preferred way if you don’t want to change the feeling you are already familiar with.

In case if your grip is too loose, we would advise you to use heat gun for second application. It has higher temperature and grip should shrink as much as it can and then there must be no problems. However, please, watch the installation video and read the instruction carefully!

RocketGrip lasts till the stick brakes, it cannot be taken off and used again.

One of the most important things is that don't throw out the grip if this happens. Use heat gun instead of the boiling water and everything will be fine! It happens because some kettles do not fully boil the water temparture as neccessary. For Rubber grips we recommend to use heat gun only!
