I'm not sure what that black part is called but, as you can see, there's separation between that and the head on a few of my clubs. I can't push it down. Do you guys know how to fix it?

It's a ferrel and yes it can be heated up and slipped back down for a nice snug fit

yes, should be.  Just don't melt the ferrule.  If you happen to warp the ferrule any just put some acetone on a cloth and spin the ferrule in cloth.

Ok.. Its a EASY FIXS..

1st) take a piece of tape (masking is best) wrap just above the ferrule (black thingy ).

2nd) get a small wrench that will go around the shaft but will set on ferrule. (the one in pic is a 10mm)

3rd ) put a dab, a drop or two of super glue between the ferrule & the hossel of club.

4th) tap down into place.

Guess there is a 5th. Wipe any excess glue off with alcohol, lighter fluid, grip solvent.. etc.

Oh you could wrap a piece of tape around the hossel.. Makes clean up easier. Pull tape off as soon as done .

Oh tap lightly, if it doesn't want to move, apply light heat.

Mine look like that on several clubs. Doesn't rattle, so I am a firm believer in if it ain't broke don't break it.

The first tap did it too. I tapped it from other angles for good measure but it really went down easy.

 

 

Also, in stunning fashion, the first wrench I grabbed out of my cluttered toolbox was the right size.

Great thread. I have this problem with one of my wedges. I have melted ferrules before, so I was hesitant to apply heat. I'll have to try this.

Just a reminder. Use a touch of super glue, gorilla glue, shaft epoxy. This helps keep it from creeping back up.

I used some gel super glue. Maybe a little bit too liberal but the masking tape on the head helped with cleanup.

 

Also, for those curious, the #10 wrench was the perfect size for me.

And when it's loosened, it looks pretty... ugly.
