Get a Grip: The Ultimate Guide to Installing Mouse Grip Tape

Are you tired of your mouse slipping and sliding all over the place during intense gaming sessions? Installing mouse grip tape may be the solution you're looking for! It's a quick and easy way to improve your grip and control over your mouse.

With a little preparation and some simple steps, you can enjoy better control and performance like the pros.

Step 1 - Choose your grip tape

The first step is to choose the grip tape that suits your preference. You can choose between a DIY sheet or a pre-cut option. If you opt for the DIY sheet, make sure to measure and cut the tape to fit your mouse's size. On the other hand, pre-cut options come in ready-to-use sizes and shapes, so you can simply peel off the backing paper and apply the tape to your mouse without the need for any cutting.

Step 2 - Clean your mouse

Before applying the grip tape, it is essential to clean your mouse to remove any dirt or oils that may interfere with the grip tape's adhesion. Use a soft cloth and rubbing alcohol to gently clean the surface of your mouse, taking care not to damage the coating. Make sure to remove all the dirt and oil residues, especially around the edges of your mouse.

Step 3 - Apply the grip tape

With your DIY or pre-cut grip tape ready, it's time to apply it to your mouse. Start by peeling off the backing paper from one corner of the tape, making sure not to remove too much of the adhesive backing at once. Carefully align the tape with the edge of your mouse and begin pressing it down firmly, using a credit card or similar tool to smooth out any creases or bumps as you go. This will help ensure that the tape adheres evenly and stays in place for longer. Take your time and work carefully to achieve the best results.

Step 4 - Trim the edges 

Finally, once the grip tape is properly applied, use a sharp hobby knife or scissors to trim any excess grip tape from around the edges of your mouse. Trimming the edges gives your mouse a clean and finished look.

And that's it! You're now ready to take your gaming to the next level with your newly gripped mouse. Say goodbye to slipping and sliding, and hello to better control and performance.
