With my Renthals, I only use two pieces of safety wire. One around the inside of the grip and one in the middle. My grips never move. Then when you want them off, cut the wire and slide them off

The downside is you only have about 20 seconds to get it on before it gets tacky. It's slippery until then, though!
Bottom line, safety wire is probably more important in keeping them aligned properly.

It makes it easier for removal. Pry the grip up with a screwdriver and use a spray bottle with water in it. Work the water around the inside of the grip and it slips right off.
This is an old mountain bike trick. For those concerned about it coming off in the rain, I rode all day last Saturday and didn't have any problems. Could some of you be overgripping and have forearms like Popeye?
