Default How to shrink a ""slip on grip"?

Looking for idea's on how to shrink a slip on grip (like a Houge), bought a Limbsaver slip on grip for my Glock 26 but did not like how it felt. So I thought why not try it on my LCR w/CT grips, well it's a little loose so I'm asking if anybody has a home remedy to shrink it down to fit.

Thanks

I also got a (Houge) grip on my .380 LCP and it's getting loose also...Glue I don't think would do very well either..(High Heat)..Maybe...???........

Slip on Grips are under $10. If your current one has lost it grip or simply doesn't fit properly, buy a new one.

Heat usually makes rubber soft and pliable.so possibly get it hot put it on the grip and immediately put it in the freezer to help it contact fast it may work but I wouldn't bet on it though

I don't believe you can shrink a slip on grip, heating it up would help if was difficult to get in place but at best it will go back to the formed size not smaller. Considering how thin these grips are I can imaginge they wear out in time as the material loose retention over time when streched to it's resistance point.
