MAKING A TAPE GLOVE

Although, its not necessary, a well made tape glove will save the skin on the back of your hand and make for more secure hand jams. Its a skill well worth having if you plan to spend a day on crack.

1. Place 3 strips of tape across the back of your hand, overlapping each strip by about 1/4". Make sure the top strip covers your knuckles.
2. Starting on the back of your wrist, run a strip of tape up, around the base of your index finger and back down your wrist. Bunch the tape together where it passes around your finger. Repeat for the pinkie (some folks wrap all of the other fingers). Repeat strips to build up a thick enough layer of tape to protect the skin.

3. Anchor your tape job with several wraps around your wrist. Now you have full protection on the back of your hand for jamming, but your palm is bare for grabbing face holds.

4. To remove, simply cut the wrist wraps on the inside of your wrist. Carefully pull the tape glove off intact.

5. Save yourself some coin and reuse your glove.

6. Just slip it back on and re-wrap the wrist. You'll be amazed how long a well-made glove will last.
