Loose End Plug

Installed a wood extension on my Warrior Mac Daddy and it keep getting loose. I added more glue and it's still loose. It's real annoying and making my stick handing all screwed up. Any thoughts on how to make it fit better?

I DON'T want to go out and buy a new stick.

Did a search here and on Yahoo for loose end plug and came up with nuthin.

Are you sure you got the correct size end plug (adult vs. junior)?

When you say loose, is it loose in the sense there is space between the end plug and the inner wall of the stick, or is it just that you install it and after a game or two its loose for no apparent reason?

I think there is a space between the end plug and the inner wall of the stick. It seems to be ok after I do it, but it gets loose when I start playing. It is a senior plug.

Fill the gap with sponge or glue and then tape the plug to the stick..

Not sure if this is what he means, but you can wrap the plug with tape before inserting it.

Yeah. The sponge didn't work. I tried wrapping it around with tape, but the tape bunched up when I inserted it.

Found this video on You Tube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=twqh7bytJz4 and wrapped the tape the other way. Thanks anyway.
