    ^^^ OK, got it!

    It looks like there may be some research on other options used to open the e-tubes, and keep them open (per posts on previous page). I'm guessing this would be a question for an...

    Perhaps this should be directed to the manufacturers of aids, but in retrospect, my biggest peeve of late is material used in aids! We are given so few choices for the HA casing. I've got the SHINY,...
