Follow this simple step-by-step guide to apply your Buttendz grips correctly and get ready to take your game to the next level.

How to Install the Buttendz Hockey Stick Grips


  1. Start with a clean hockey stick. If you have any old tape on the stick, remove it completely.
  2. 2. Take the Buttendz grip and locate the "BUTTENDZ" text on the grip. This is the open end of the grip that you will start with.
  3. Slide the open end of the grip onto the top of your hockey stick, aligning it with the top of the shaft. Make sure the grip is straight on the stick.
  4. Begin rolling the grip down the shaft of the stick. Apply pressure with your fingers as you roll to ensure the grip adheres tightly to the stick without any air bubbles.
  5. Continue rolling the grip down the shaft slowly and steadily. Avoid stretching the grip as you apply it, as this can cause the grip to shrink later.
  6. Once you reach the end of the grip, take the enclosed finishing tape and wrap it around the bottom of the grip to secure it in place.
  7. Take your time to apply the finishing tape carefully, ensuring a tight and neat wrap around the bottom edge of the grip.
  8. After the finishing tape is applied, your Buttendz grip is installed and ready for use. The grip should feel snug and secure on your hockey stick.

Remember, take your time during the application process to ensure the grip is straight and applied tightly without any air bubbles for the best performance and durability.

Answering Your Questions About Buttendz Hockey Stick Grips

Q: Can I use boiling water instead of a heat gun to install my Buttendz grip?

A: While some hole grips can be applied using either boiling water or a heat gun, we recommend using a heat gun for all Buttendz fabric and rubber grips to ensure optimal results.

Q: What if I don't own a heat gun?

A: Most ice rinks have heat guns available, as they are commonly used for installing end plugs. Simply ask the staff at your local rink if you can borrow one for your grip installation.

Q: Are Buttendz grips compatible with goalie sticks?

A: Compatibility depends on the size of the stick's knob. If the knob diameter exceeds 4.2cm, the grip may not fit over it. However, you can still install the grip on the stick itself and then apply the knob overtop using tape. You can also check out our goalie grips - right here at Buttendz.

Q: Is it possible to install a Buttendz grip over an existing tape job?

A: Yes! Applying a Buttendz grip over your current tape job will allow the grip to mold to the shape you're already accustomed to, maintaining a familiar feel.

Q: How can I fix a loose Buttendz grip?

A: If your grip feels loose after installation, we recommend reapplying heat using a heat gun. This will ensure the grip shrinks to its maximum potential, providing a snug, secure fit. Be sure to follow the installation video and instructions carefully for the best results.

Q: Can Buttendz grips be removed and reused?

A: No, Buttendz grips are designed to last until the stick breaks and cannot be removed for reuse on another stick.

Q: What should I do if the grip doesn't shrink completely?

A: If you encounter incomplete shrinkage, don't discard the grip. Instead, try using a heat gun rather than boiling water, as some kettles may not reach the necessary temperature for optimal shrinkage. For rubber grips, we always recommend using a heat gun for the best results.
