A tip is to do all these steps outdoors or in a storage room/garage as it will get a little dirty after sawing, cutting and sanding the carbon fiber.

  • 1. Saw off the edges of your broken hockey stick to make a straight and smooth surface so that it makes a nice cut when you put the two cut pieces together.

  • 2 a) Use the sandpaper and sand off the inside of the hockey stick (both parts). Grind as carefully as you can about 4-5 cm in. The reason for sanding the inside is so that the glue will have better adhesion for a better and more durable result. One tip is to use a long, narrow object that you can wrap the sandpaper around to then more easily sand the inside of the hockey stick. Another tip is to put the club part against a table when grinding the inside to get more and better power when grinding.
  • b) Make sure there isn't a lot of carbon fiber dust left inside the stick until it's time to mix the glue.

  • 3 a) Sand the carbon fiber plug a little lightly with the sandpaper so that the surface is roughened up a bit.
  • b) If necessary, you can also grind down the carbon fiber plug a little if it is too big so that it will fit better in your broken club. However, don't grind too much ! It's better that you get to knock it in than that it's too small and slides right through. This step is not always necessary.

    c) After you have sanded the inside of the club and possibly the carbon fiber plug a little, you can test if the plug fits in the club, otherwise you have to sand a little more. If you notice that the plug fits but that you have to push it in a little, this is OK!

  • 4. Soon we will mix the glue, but first a tip is to tape around the edge of your broken hockey stick, so that the glue does not leak onto the stick. Do this step on both club halves. Tips on tape; masking tape, packing tape, leg protection tape, etc.

  • 5. Measure half of the carbon fiber plug and put a piece of tape there as well so that the glue does not peel off on the other half of the plug as we have to glue the plug for two days in order not to risk something going wrong.

  • 6. Now it's time to mix glue! Put on one glove provided.

  • 7. Take out one glue bag and the mixing palette (Mixing palette). Fold the bag in half and cut/cut open one side and squeeze out the glue on the mixed paper. Use the wooden stick to squeeze everything out of the glue bag.
  • 8. Then take out one wooden stick and mix the glue together until it becomes a white/light gray color (approx. 30-45 seconds).

  • 9. First spread the glue on the inside of one stick using the wooden stick. A thin layer is enough. Then smear the glue on one half of the carbon fiber plug to be inserted into one part of your broken hockey stick. Use the entire bag of glue to ensure as much surface area as possible is covered, both on the plug and inside the mallet. ATTENTION! The glue starts to harden already within 5 minutes, so this step has to be a little extra fast and at the same time accurate!
  • 10. Wipe off any excess glue that has spilled over with a little paper or cloth. Also wipe off the plug so that no glue hardens on the part that goes into the other half of the club.

  • 11. Remove the piece of tape from the carbon plug and wipe clean so there is no glue right in the joint that will prevent the other club half from sliding in and making maximum contact.

  • 12. Set the mallet in a vertical direction and let it harden at room temperature (20 degrees) for about a day.

  • 13. The next day, repeat steps 6-9.

  • 14. Wipe off any remaining glue that has leaked onto the stick. Remove the remaining pieces of tape around the hockey stick halves. Wipe clean if necessary.

  • 15. Set the mallet in a vertical direction and let it harden at room temperature (20 degrees) for about a day.

  • 16. Flex the mallet slightly in both directions (it will crack a little, and that's OK).

  • 17. The club is then ready for use!
