Question Grip Glue...??? Super Glue OK...???

My left grip slooowly works its way toward off, and I checked on glue and was told by a shop Mech. that super glue worked... Has anyone used super glue on grips...??? I was thinking that I might take the edge of a file and sort of rake the bar end a bit to help with the slick chrome finish and use super glue on it...
What do y'all think...???
Thanks and have a good one...Old Dog...

Super glue would probably work very well I'd think.

I use a light coat of hair spray on mine. Slides on wet, and dries firm. And if/when they need to come back off, there's no "drama".

Oh well, I had super glue so I used it... I'll let y'all know how it works out, I'm not a big fan of super glue, I've had more to do with epoxies... It may be better than I thought though... I used to use hair spray on bicycle grips and it worked pretty good, but I didn't think it was great...
Thanks Folks and have a good one...Old Dog...

Only trouble with superglue is....IMO... it could make removal a little difficult if/when the grips need changed. Especially if you roughed up the bars with a file (or anything really)
Ya may need to use a file again to remove residue if ya did roughen up the bars.

Yeah, I hate to be the one who has to remove those grips later..

Guess it matters how much super-glue you use. I have always had good luck with hairspray, or clear acrylic paint. (At one point in my life I had no freindly sourse of hairspray, so the clear laquer took it's place.

Alot of times I used nothing at all...depends on the grip.

A thin line of superglue down the length of the bar will be easier to remove than brushing on the entire surface. I would not "rough up" the bars with a file however as you'd be taking off the chrome and enabling rust to form.

when i changed my stock grips to foam grips a couple years ago...i did not use enything at all. they were very tight, and still are..i check them when i do my preride checks just to make sure they wont slide while riding. i have some super glue in my tool bag to make repairs if they do come loose.
