Soft, grippy, rubbery plastics can loose their grip from sawdust and other dust. Try cleaning them with water or a solvent to restore the rubbery grip. Cleaning the garage surface may also help. Give that a try before you start building gadgets.
I was one of the people who was confused by "Bar Keeper's Friend". Until now, I only knew it as a cleanser.
