Fancy Footwork (How To Grip Tape Your Pedals)

Postby john89teg » June 10th, 2014, 4:21 pm

Alright guys, I have a quick and easy mod for y'all. Skateboard grip tape is ideal for covering the metal on stock pedals and is available in a bunch of colors and patterns.

Here's the process-

Supplies needed:

-Griptape ($5 at any local skate shop) Here's what I got for mine:
Image

-A screwdriver
-A razor blade

Step One:
Remove the rubber pedal covers

Step Two:
Cut the rough shape of the pedals out of the grip tape, leaving a little around the edges

Step Three:
Carefully peel the backing from the grip tape

Step Four:
Working from the center out, press down on the tape, sealing it to the pedals
Image

Step Five:
Using the shaft of the screwdriver, rub the edges of the pedals at an angle with some force. This seals the edges, and makes for an easier cut.

Step Six:
Take the razor blade and carefully trim the excess away

Step Seven:
Take a picture of the end result and go get a refreshing beverage of your choice.

NOTES:

-One sheet of tape will cover 5 or 6 sets of pedals.
-I used the cover for the gas pedal instead of putting the grip tape on the metal base. (Unlike the other pedals, there is a divot in it that would have led to a tear)
