Tools & toys
What’s to love: Easily replace the grips on a variety of tools.
What does it do: Re-Grip comes in three sizes, allowing the user to replace grips on items such as hammers, rakes, baseball bats, golf clubs, jackhammers and wheelbarrow handles. Select the smallest size diameter Re-Grip that will fit over the tool. An inner coil forms a tube allowing the new grip to be placed over the handle. Pull a tab to unwind and remove the coil and the grip shrinks and is fixed securely in place. Prices start at $9.99 for a package of one small Re-Grip. More information at re-grip.com.
