They might be cheap but it is about the best accessory you could get for an outlay of 10$

Some of these grips have a thin layer of tape for protecting the shoe from the grub screw.

What I did was to cut a small piece of aluminum from a drinks can and I stuck in on the underside using electrical tape for added protection, it works well.

Hi Paul,

I totally agree, it was a great buyer buzz for such a small outlay! The fit is snug enough on mine that I didn't even tighten the grub screw down & that works for me too, I couldn't bear the thought of torquing down on a hot shoe!

Though I might have to adopt your protective strategy if it loosens up over time, thanks.

Paul
