need advise on how to get my new hiking stick foam grip on to my FX1 hiking stick.

I purchased this grip and with a lot of efforts i get it 1" on the stick but 11" is still hanging loose.

Maybe put a little dishwashing detergent on the stick first to lube it up.

I struggling to get a new foam grip completely on my FX06 tiller. Than while sailing, I retracted the telescopic tiller fast and the foam grip popped right off disappearing into a water grave...........be sure use a little glue............ :|
