Default That little protective sleeve for tip of carrott

Hi. What common, off the shelf, piece can I slip onto the end of my years old Garrett Carrot, to save the tip from more wear ? Thank you.

Take it to lowes or home depot and look at plastic chair leg protectors. I have been using them and I get a couple years out of mine.

The protectors I had were sleek and slender, not flared at the tip. I am sure that I have some left over somewhere, but that was years ago. I suppose you can sand the flared ones down though. My old ones surely still exist. China hasn't quit making cheap products, which will actually fit.

Home depot was my source. I just bought the plain plastic that were not enlarged on the tip and cut a little notch to match the rib on the barrel of the pointer and slipped it on.
