Re: Looking for X/10/20 thumb rest rubber

Maybe a few thicknesses of heat shrinkable tubing would do a good job?

Of course, you need to remove the thumb rest from the camera before shrinking that heat shrinkable tubing.

If you don't have a heat gun, you could put the tubing on the thumb rest, and put them both in a kitchen oven set to 200F.  Wait 20 minutes and the tubing will shrink fully.

This tubing is usually available in the electrical department of Home Depot:


You might want to build up a few layers then overcoat with a larger piece.

It is not expensive and it is easy to remove, so you could try this several times until you get something you like.

Good luck!
