Lizard Skins Lock on grips installation problem
I just purchased a pair of Lizard Skins lock on grips, but I can't seem to put them together. Even before putting the grips on the bars, I can't get the sliver lock rings over the ends of the grips. It seems like the lock rings are made out of quite a hard brittle material, and without breaking out the tools I can't either spread the clips or squeeze the grip enough to make it go on.
I suppose I could get out the vice and start applying some real force, but this just seems wrong to me...I thought lock on grips were supposed to be trivially easy to install! Do you think:
1. They are defective
2. I need to get the tools out
3. I'm doing something wrong
