Thanks for the tips! I totally forgot about the top 3 "real men's tools" -- cable ties, bungee cords, and duck tape!

It looks like a lot of guys out there suffering due to slack muffs!
I wish I'd been a little more selective when I acquired my muff lol!

Having a selection of muffs is not an option when your married, especially if she finds out

To return momentarily to the flushing discussion.....

Somewhere on here I posted a pic of my solution - a couple of old cloths stuffed up the prop with a bungee to hold them in.

Works a treat for the noise. No help with the muffs tho'!

Back to the banter.......
