The Tip Clamp gives you the ability to reapply a tip at a moment's notice. Keep it in your cue case and always be prepared. It's simple to use. Just sand the tip you want to glue, and place it into the clamp. Push the tip all the way to the bottom. Place glue on your ferrule and slide it firmly onto the tip in the clamp. Pull the large part of the tip clamp up and when glue is dry just push the large part down and remove the shaft.
