You found your hand slipping on your deck and you don’t like to use wax . So you purchased the Slyde kung fu-grip. Great choice! An epic grip is coming your way, but first you have to put it on the deck. Never fear, we have your back Here are 8 reasons the grip is so epic:
It's easy, just pay attention and don't skip any steps. 1 fun hour with a beer! Another reason to have a beer
Use a flat head or Philips screwdriver to remove the strap from the deck of the board (you will replace the strap when finished.If you need further help check out our how to remove your adjustable handstrap video Here
Removing all the wax and as much as you can before cleaning with denatured alcohol will make the next step far easier. Use a wax comb like pictured above or something like a credit card
Clean the deck with a rag and de-natured alcohol, or lacquer thinner (it’s stronger, be careful). It’s around $6 in the Home Depot paint department, next to the thinners.
Look into the reﬂection for any wax you missed
carefully place your pad on the deck where you want it and trace your pad with a pencil on your board.
Starting at the top point of the pad, ONLY PEEL ABOUT 3 INCHES OF THE PAPER BACK. DON'T TOUCH THE STICKY ADHESIVE.
It’s just like laying contact paper down on a cupboard shelf. Hold the pad perfectly centered over the board and trace line and place the sticky top edge inside your traced pencil mark. Lightly rest the adhesive (so you can pull back and reset it), then press from the center out to the edges of the pad.
