you can use a staple gun to restaple the butt cap to the handle, (you take the grip off first)

Staple is the prefered way to fix it. If not use super glue =]

Okay kidding.

If the end of the handle is in good, solid condition, then yes using a staple gun is a good option.

If the end of the handle is damaged, or the material is kind of loose or crumbly, you might try using a glue or epoxy. 'Gorilla Glue' is my personal favorite as it sticks to just about any surface, and it's rock solid.

i recently had the same problem, and i use super glue. perfect. no more loose buttcap. you have to leave it one day to make it really work.

Use epoxy or preferably fiberglass resin. The latter will last forever.

shoe goo works great as well.

Thanks everyone. I'll try one of these or a combo of glue and staple gun to make sure.

Better put a plug in it before it starts to leak :)
