Silicon Rubber Lip-guard for Fosters Beercan Mug on 04/05/2006 12:59:38 MDT Print View

Does anyone know how I can buy or make a silicon rubber lip-guard similar to that used on the Ultralight Outfitters Beercan Esbit Stove System. I sent UO an email but they haven't responded yet.

I think I saw Tinny use one of those Lance Armstrong bracelets on his. That might work if you can't find the exact one you're looking for.

Thanks Jason!

The Lance Armstrong 'Livestrong' bracelet (adult size) works great.

Easy fix if you can't find a ready-made bracelet to fit yout can: Permatex high temperature silicone gasket maker. Just squeeze a bead of this stuff around the rim and you are good to go.
