When I use preforms (generally 3 at a time) as temporary grips, I paint =
them with day-glo orange so I know never to use them for permanent =
installations, but they can be used several times effectively.  Right =
now I have several of the puny utility grips in that service.  No love =
lost when I throw them out!
