Slipping Grips Help

Never had the problem before. Bought afternarket clip ons, used scotts grip glue or something, safety wired them and the left one, in particular, keeps slipping.

Should I take it off....clean the clip on real good? (with what would you recommend)

Should I scour the clip on a little or leave it slick? if so, with what?

Then should I use the grip glue or something else?

Tks.

Tons of different ways, including hair spray, paint (clear) and Gaskacinch. Nothing beats a couple wraps of safety wire, though. Some grips have a grove for wire.

The hairspray will work, but don't get it wet or it will dissolve cuz it's *um* hairspray. The glue didn't work?? REALLY!?!?!

3M™ Emery Cloth, wipe clean, quick spray of final net hair spray, and use the scott grip glue, slide grip on, rotate to position and wire down. They dont move after they dry........Let them sit for a couple hours to dry
