Quick Tips On How To Remove The Shaft Of A Golf Club

When it comes to care and maintenance of your golf club, there are some things that you will need to learn so that you can do them on your own. For example you do not necessarily need to go on paying someone to change or replace the shaft of the golf club for you. This is something that you can do on your own, and will actually cost you a very short time and money in the process. If perhaps you are not able to do it on your own, then you can think about getting someone to do that for you.

The following are some useful tips that will come in handy for you in a bid to help you learn how to remove the shaft from your golf club:

Step 1

You will need to remove the ferrule from the club. This is the small elastic or plastic band that you will find just on top of the hosel. You will need a utility knife to remove it. However, try and be very careful with it so that you do not cause any damage on your club.

Step 2

Get a vice and secure the club properly. Make sure that you have something soft to protect the club from excessive force as you secure it to the vice, ensuring that you leave exposed around 8 inches off the shaft and the entire length of the head.

Step 3

Get some heat on the glue inside the hosel to melt it. You can do this with a propane torch. Do not crank the head of the club with too much force as you attempt to remove it. Applying too much force could actually break the club within the hosel. After that, make sure that you carefully work the head of the club until it is separated from the shaft.

Step 4

Clean off any of the glue that might have remained in the hosel so that you can get a proper and new fit for the shaft. To do this easily, get some sandpaper and roll it slowly until it fits into the hosel. Twist slightly and gently so that you can get rid of any loose glue.

As you are working on this, remember that you are using some extremely dangerous equipment such as the propane torch, so practice extreme care.
