It is important to get the thumb tip in a show without fumbling out of the prop case or centrepiece. I tried many holders, and this is the one I settled on for a long time now. I made it out of a plastic thumb tip, from which I cut off the tip and made a slit into the side. I fix this holder to the inside of my performance case. It holds the thumb tip secure, but I can remove the tip without hassle whenever I need it.
