How to break-in dowel grips!

Always keep in mind that improperly sized dowel grips or wearing a grip not designed for the appropriate apparatus is very dangerous and can lead to catastrophic injury. Always consult your coach when making grip decisions. Break-in procedure:
You first need to soften the stiff leather. Start by rolling the leather. Wrap the leather around the dowel and roll the grip down to the cuff. Repeat this step with the dowel facing you and with it facing away from you. You will notice an immediate difference in the softening of the leather. Perform this step several times on each handgrip and include the wrist cuffs as well. Never pinch or fold the leather sharply together.

Regarding the finger holes:

The rolling process above should soften them to a comfortable fit. But if they are still too small or tight for your fingers, follow this procedure. Use a small piece of sandpaper (many brands supply it with the grips). Wrap it around a pencil and slowly and carefully sand around the finger holes. This will open the hole consistently around the opening without tears. Never stretch the opening by hooking it on something and pulling and never cut the holes with a knife. This will tear or weaken and damage the leather rendering them unsafe and beyond repair.

It is now okay to start using your handgrips in slow under swings until the grips feel comfortable enough for more advanced stunts and full giant swings. The results will be surprising. These grips are now prepared for your use only. More important grip notes.

Never use water to soften leather grips. Water causes deterioration and rotting, as well as stretching of the leather. This can shorten the life of your grips Inspect your grips often for tears or over stretching. Grips that become too long are very dangerous and can cause grip lock. If any part of the dowel can touch the lower portion of the grip when the hand is around the bar, the grip is too long. If the grip slips off the fingertip or the dowel slides to the side and if the grip does not stay in the correct position on the wrist, it is too long Never borrow a teammate's grips. You should have a backup pair of grips broken in and ready for use in case of untimely breakage. Follow these suggestions and you will have a safe, long lasting, comfortable pair of grips.

WARNING!
These measurements are an approximate guide and do not guarantee a safe or perfect fit.  The gymnast and his/her coach must decide on appropriate size by evaluating the actual grip once it is on the gymnast's hand.  There are dimensions to the hand that cannot be taken into account with a flat measurement, such as the position on the wrist where the gymnast might decide to wear the wristband.  Only the gymnast and his/her coach can make proper judgment as to the correct size for any gymnast.  Deary's Gymnastics Supply will not be held liable for failure due to use of an incorrectly sized grip.  The coach and the gymnast must take the final responsibility as to the fitness of a particular size.  Improper fitting grips that have not been used may be exchanged for proper size.  Please return in original packaging material and include return postage.
