You could try spray glue, it's easy to get hold of and sets quickly.
You could also try hairspray when you put new grips on, it makes them slide on and then it sticks.

I have never read a post as disorganized and full of bs as yours GravityBmxer. I highly doubt you are a serious BMXer.

As for your question nac-nac, I use hairspray when installing grips like God save the Queen suggested and it works very well, and I have also used rubbing alcohol which worked comparatively well.

one of my most favorite thing to use to hold my grips on is shoe goo.

you can get a real good bead around the ends so no dirt gets in.

when you wear the grips out razor blade them off.
