Toe guard coming off new bat
« on: June 29, 2018, 08:55:04 PM »

The toe guard is peeling off my new Keeley

What are the suggestions to fix or shall I take it off .

Any issues with taking it off and problems later at the bottom.or shall I surround it with some bat tape ?

I would stick it back on. Many on here hate toe guards and would suggest you just remove it. All my bats have them and once stuck well will last for years. Its personal preference though.

Take it off, they only fall off anyway...

I find that outdoor wood varnish on the toe is a better alternative. Cheap as chips and the tin will last for ages. Once it starts to wear off simply apply another couple of coats

Seems like there's no one answer. Seem like a good idea to glue it on until it rubs off although the wood varnish seems like a neat trick

They can be a problem to stick back on if they are not clean also rough up with sand paper   for better Adhesion before applying  glue.
Or you could  apply  2 coats of Ronseal water repellant boat vanish onto the toe it seals and is hard wearing.

Won't pull any punches here - get rid of it, toeguards are a total waste of time!

Numerous options outlined here . For an expensive bat a toe gaurd is nice .. may try super glue next weekend.

Alternatively if it comes off outdoor wood varnish as suggested ?

A whole page of this thread without a shoegoo mention ?
I find the varnish is good for water protection but shoegoo will also help with toe damage from toe tapping , feathering etc if it goes up over the toe a bit around the back and face and edges.
Toe guards and shoegoo will weigh a little less than half an oz . It can make a bat feel slightly different/worse balance wise , but if it feels good with a toe guard it will feel the same with shoegoo.

So use shoegoo as the glue to seal the toe guard back on

Don't need varnish then ?

You can use shoogoo as the toeguard thus not needing varnish (just as the case would be if you were using a toe guard. Or you can do what @sarg does when prepping bats - apply a coat of bat oil  then varnish ,then add a shoogoo toeguard . This seems the best of all worlds really.
Perhaps someone can post a link, if not look up "cricketbatinfo" channel  on youtube .
