    Annoying - Forté Locking Grip ends fall out - how to fix?

    I'm installing a new Oval Concepts Flat MTB Bar with Forte Locking Grips -

    Bar - http://www.nashbar.com/profile.cfm?c...All%20Products
    Grips - http://www.performancebike.com/shop/...slisearch=true

    They fit a bit tight but it works. What does work are the end caps. Why??? So freaking annoying. They fall right out. Any suggestions on how to fix this? They seem like decent grips in all other aspects.

    thanks,
    matt

    Insert toothpick(s), tap it in again lightly with a big wrench or hammer.

    [Yeah, I'm one of those everything can be fixed with duct tape and toothpicks kinda guys...]
