    Proper locking wire is stainless.

    Grip glue is quite good as it lubes the grip going on then you leave it to set. But failing that I used Bostik for many years with a reasonable degree of success.

    I didn't say I used locking wire. I use green plastic coated wire made for tying up rose bushes.

    Your stainless locking wire cuts into the rubber.
