  2. Then put the griptape on the deck (start at the end and work your way up)
  3. Scratch the griptape with an Allan key or a screwdriver
  4. Use a box knife to cut the excess off the griptape - always cut from below in a ~ 45° angle
  5. Use the rough side of the griptape remains to sand the edges
  6. Use the Allen key or a screwdriver to make the holes into griptape
