    hi, does any have a suggestion on how to re-gauge the rubber tip of the peg so it stops slipping on some survive.

    I do not want to really use my hockey puck floor stopper all the time, and rather just put the rubber tip on the peg on the floor.

    And yes sometimes when I find it slipping, sometimes I do have to take the tip off and just use the point. But I do not like to that either because sometimes the peg itself get pushed up inside the bass, and it is no fun sometime to push it back out. So if you have any idea please let me know.

    Cane tips are good to put on the end of the endpin to prevent slipping and damaging floors. They are about $5.

    I took my endpin out, and took it to my local drug store so I could try a few out to make sure it fit correctly.

    I also trimmed out the inner bump of rubber so could remove the tip when needed.

    I also a washer the same diameter as the inside of the tip. The tip of the endpin goes in the small hole of the washer and keeps the tip from poking through the rubber bottom.

    They usually usually come in twos so you can give one to a buddy.

    This is one of thos rubber stopps with the screw in it to screw on the peg, and I had this one replace the one I had before just this week. I had read put some rossin on the tip, and some other ideas on this forum.

    It is not as easy to replace this tip, either since. It was perfect when I bought it this week, but I have been practicing a lot, and I had a gig, and it started to slip on me, and should not of.

    So I looked at the tip, and saw the right hand side of the botton of the stopper was started to wore out. so now I just want to figer a way to regauge the bottom so it has more traction and will not slip at all.

    I am thinking of super glue, rubber cement or something like that to help it stop slipping.
