Hi all, I've got a pair of CK combi snips, and there's nothing wrong with them other than the fact the red and yellow grips keep slipping off the handles, Which is obviously very annoying when stripping cables etc, And has lead to many grazed knuckles. So basically does anyone know of any suitable glue or a company that re grips stuff like this? Or is it just one of those things that can't be helped?
Cheers
James

I think Araldite would probably sort that out for you. Dont know how it would affect the vde rating though.

Send them back to CK, you may get another pair.

Thanks guys, I've emailed CK seeing what they can do, Hopefully I'll get a new pair !. If not it's the Araldite.

Hair spray! Done it on a bikes grips years ago then had the same problem as you have got so tried the hairspray and they are still on there now!

Maybe try Sikaflex but first prize would be to get them exchanged under warranty.

Wor Lass has no trouble gripping mine. A bit like a Scotsman with a £5 note. ;)
