Most smokers clench their pipes. It's something that is a reality of pipe smoking, no matter who you are. Instead of continually hurting your teeth and marking up your pipe, why not put a soft rubber bit over the tip of your pipe stem? This will make your pipe more comfortable and will protect your treasured pipe as well.

I buy these every time I get a new pipe. They not only save the bit, but more importantly, your teeth. I always put them on upside down (larger end first).
I like to clench, but my teeth don’t really like it with out using these bits. They fit on a wide variety of stems, but not the normal Missouri Meerschaum stems (they do fit the Danish style ones though).
They seem to work great. Not sure how snug they should be, but these are very tight. Once they’re on, they don’t move.
Decent coverage for protecting the stem from my chompers. Slightly small, but they fit a wide variety of my pipes. I kind of wish they were a little longer. I’m clenching with my molars and the ridge it makes on the stem is right at my lips.
For anyone that has a habit of biting on the stem, these are a great product to have. Saves the stems.
They fit my pipe well and make holding in my mouth much easier.
After many years of destroying my stems, I finally decided to try these bits. Love 'em. And so do my stems.
These are the best... easy to stretch, feel good in mouth, protects the bit... use on all my pipes.
Nice and comfy, made with high-grade rubber without any foul smell, it fits in different sizes of stems.
