How to keep your flexible endoscope safe when it’s not in the case

Making sure that the end of a flexible endoscope doesn’t get banged, bent or crushed is essential! When they are out of the case drying or being stored on a wall bracket here is a simple and cheap method for protecting them.
Most home improvement stores sell 3/4 or 1 inch pipe insulation, cut to size (~ 6 inches in length) and fit to the diameter of your endoscope. Secure with tape and know that the end of the scope will be protected.
They can be easily washed and dried or replaced as needed.
