This handy little tool allows you to remove a backscrew or place lead and a cork down the shaft of a club without damaging a perfectly good grip. It is simple to use - just place the "sleeved" tip into the hole in the end of a grip, then remove the tool, leaving the sleeve in teh expanded hole. The larger opening will allow you to place lead powder and cork down the shaft for swingweighting. If you are removing a head, the opening will be large enough to place a 47-inch drill down the shaft to drill out the backscrew. The Grip Saver is 7-1/2 inches long with a wooden handle.

Essential toolTool does exactly what it is designed to do, and is super easy to use. I used it to to pour weight and cork down the shaft without having to re-grip my clubs. Did 6 clubs in about 15 minutes. This is a MUCH better option than trying to take off and save the grip using a needle or air compressor. Well worth the money. A tip when using it, dab some solvent around the prong and it makes it much easier to insert. Otherwise some twisting and extra elbow grease will do the trick.

Good, but not greatThis product is great for many projects.... However the part that stays in the grip while you are working comes in two parts a washer and the hollow plug. I sanded it up and epoxied them together as to not lose parts and there is no instance where you need them apart.

It worksI work in a high volume golf store and sometimes have to make adjustments or repairs w/o removing the grip. The grip saver works as advertised. I've added tungsten powder and corked it and also drilled epoxy to remove adapters using the grip saver.
Will this work with these grips http://www.golfworks.com/lamkin-crossline-3gen-ace/p/LK0093/ ? They are the Lamkin Crossline 3gen Ace grips. Doesn't seem like the hole in the end of the grip will stretch enough. Will they shape back to normal?

The SAVER will work with the LK0093. It will stretch out the hole in the grip cap slightly and it it may not return to complete original size, but it will get smaller after the SAVER is removed.

Is it possible to buy the "sleeves" separately. I have misplaced mine and don't want to replace the tool if not necessary.
