When the cue is not in play, we suggest the use of Joint Protectors.
Joint protectors serve two purposes:
1. To protect the joint pin and shaft threads from any damage.
2. To seal off the unfinished end of the shaft from moisture.
If you have an existing cue, McDermott offers Joint Protectors for a variety of pin thread sizes. You can find them HERE, along with our other cue maintenance products and accessories.
