I have used plasti-dip on these and it works great. I had previously tried tape, tubes, and other options, but the dip works the best! The paddle is slightly tapered, so it stays put nicely. I simply cleaned the bare lever with alcohol, and did 3 coats of dip. It is more tactile and grippy than the original plastic covers, and seems more durable as well - with years of trouble-free service. You can get the dip in colors, too!
