    That's not funny Nath. There's a time and place for it, but not here

    By the title of this thread, I was sure someone would make a dirty joke somehow. Looks like Nathan got there first

    Haha I found that hilarius. Well I just pull it down little bit by little bit until it's back where it should be. After that I redo the tape and apply it extra tight and as many times as neccessary. If after that the bat grip is still above the handle then just cut it off with a Stanley Knife or something.

    Just put some electrical tape around the grip at the base of the handle

    The tape doesn't really seem to work, though the tape might be dodgy

    Yeah I use some good strong electrical tape. During the season I need to reapply it every now and then

    Electrical tape or elastoplast at the bottom or once it is in the correct position, roll it down about half-way and put glue on the handle before rolling it up again.

    Latter works much better but means grip has to be cut off once it wears out.

    Elastoplast works well, but looks bad...

    I would rather take a beating than re-grip a bat! The only solution I have found for a "sliding up grip" is to latch on to a substantial amount of rubber at the shoulder -- rotating around the handle -- and really stretch/muscle it down as you go around -- then after the rubber is well stretched (and hopefully lower down on the bat shoulder) use rubberized finishing tape to hopefully secure it..

    Try rubbing your handle with sand and then rub your hands with sand as well. IT works for me.
    We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.

    It does that invariably because of top hand dominated grips which is how it should be as far as grip on the bat goes.

    Live with it and tap the top of the grip that has come 'off' with the middle of your palm a few times every now and then and dont wait for it to become a couple of inches off the handle.

    If you insist on preventing it from slipping (and I assure you nothing will work perfectly) do not do what seems the obvious, that is, try and 'hold' the grip at the bottom(closer to the blade) Its much more useful to hold it at the top. Roll down the grip about six inches and then put a double sided tape on the top six inches. Then roll the grip back and press it into place.

    This will work better but if and when it does slip after this, it will be much more difficult getting it back
