Re-Grip Replacement Handle Grip

The Re-Grip Replacement Handle Grip installs on a myriad of items that would benefit from having better gripping-e.g., shop tools, yard/garden tools, construction equipment. The manufacturer indicates that it is: long-lasting; solvent-, water-, weather-, and heat-resistant; anti-slip; electric-shock-insulated; and comfortable to use. To install: the grip comes wrapped around a rigid, extruded plastic coil, which allows it to slide over the tool handle. When it's in place, the user pulls the coil out of the grip, causing it to affix to the handle as he/she pulls. Re-Grip comes in three interior-diameter sizes to accommodate different size handles.
