The "Pocket Pal" Tip Clamp is the perfect tool to keep in your cue case. In a moment's notice you can reapply a tip. Just apply your favorite glue to the ferrule and put the tip onto the ferrule. Then place the tip clamp over the shaft and ferrule and slide the ring keeper over the clamp body. The clamp holds the tip firmly in place. When the glue is dry just slide the keeper off and swing the tip clamp away from the shaft. Made in the USA.
