How to Install Golf Club Heads on a Shaft

By Tami Fisher

Sometimes people want to try a new golf club head but don't want to purchase a new, expensive golf club to do so. This is when it's easy and somewhat inexpensive to replace the head on your old club. This way, you can keep the grip and shaft intact and only replace the head of the club. While people in the pro shop are trained to do this, it is a relatively simple task.

Instructions

Difficulty: Moderately Easy
Step 1
Tape the club head with masking tape to prevent it from being scratched during installation. Place shaft firmly in the vise.
Step 2
Making sure the hosel in the club head is clean, apply epoxy all around the inside of the hosel. Also, apply epoxy around the end of the shaft where the club head goes.
Step 3
Gently, push the shaft into the hosel of the club head, turning the shaft at the same time.
Step 4
Twist the shaft a bit to ensure the shaft is all the way down at the base of the hosel.
Step 5
Use acetone to remove any excess epoxy on the shaft, the new club head or the hosel. Remove masking tape from the club head.
Step 6
Let epoxy dry for 12 to 16 hours, and the new club head should be ready for use.
