Hitch Handle

My Curt 16A 5th wheel hitch's release handle has a black foam grip on it that is deteriorating and leaves black stains on my hands. Is there a replacement or way to cover it and not look like crappy? I thought of wrapping it with black tape, but and not sure it will hold.

What about tennis racket wrap? Take off whatís there and re-wrap it.

Itís one of the things Iím considering for my flip/door handle for the camper.
