Adding grip to elbow pad bicep cuff

Has anyone ever tried using some anti-slip tape on the inside of the bicep cuffs of their elbow pads to keep them from sliding down?

Like this: https://www.amazon.com/Slip-Tape-Sta...ateway&sr=8-11

I'm not sure how well it'd adhere to elbow pad material, which I would assume is mostly polyester.

I've got the Empire NeoSkin elbow pads. They don't have any silicone beading or anything around the inside of the bicep cuff, so they're susceptible to sliding down.

Thoughts?

Ok, So you don't wanna use that tape. It's essentially sandpaper with an adhesive.

You need to find some elastic with a silicone bead on it. You can get it at some fabric stores or online... something like this: https://www.amazon.com/Elastic-Silic.../dp/B072FNPCQ2

Get that stitched into the tops of your pads and you should be good to go.

Yes!! That's what I was looking for. Thank you, I will give that a shot! Do you know if I can get a smaller amount of that fabric from Michael's or something?

Probably? I'd also try some fabric stores. Or do a search on Ebay and see if someone's selling by the yard/metre.
