As suggested; use some adhesive and run the grips you want to use... not others you don't want just because they lock on.
Although I suggested the lock-ons, I run foam grips with Elmer's Spray Glue holding them in place. 10 grams.

Do the grips slide onto the bars dry easily or does it take some effort? If they're loose dry, you may as well replace them. If you're using hairspray or something to get them to slide on be sure you're allowing a day for them to dry. Using an air compressor with a dry grip is a good way to go too. ODI's are real nice too, makes future removal and installation a snap.

I'll never use another type of grip other than Lock-Ons. I always had problems with my grips never staying in place. Buy the Lock-Ons and forget about your grips. They're easy to put on and remove. Only a weight weenie wouldn't buy them.
