They do not stay in place as much as I would like them to. Especially on the needlenose, anytime I squeeze hard, the grips tend to slide a bit down and I am constantly pushing them back into place. Anyone has a fix for this? Epoxy?

Contact cement will not work since the grips have to be slid into place.

We always used a heavy wet coat of hair spray on bicycle grips. Maybe try that?

Super Glue will do it but you have to slide the grips in place fast.

Yep, super glue. Put about 20-30 drops into the grip and stick the metal handle in. Let it dry for a while. No problem.

Remove grips and plasti-dip the handles. Then slide the blue handles back on. Or spray them with flex-seal.

Rubber cement will act as a lubricant when wet, but will grip when dry.

Lots of suggestions and thank you all for them.

Since we have Gorilla Glue at work I think I will go with it. I plan on roughening up the bare handles a bit on a bench grinder and applying the glue and then sliding the grips on.
