    Honestly, my covers just do that automatically because of the way they stretch over the helmet. I use a fat helmet rubber band to hold my "silky" nylon cover in place and it doesn't flip up as much....

    My trainer tortured me with an exercise where she hooked bungy cords to the bit rings and made me hold the other end. If you don't keep the contact, they ping off.

    Pro tip: if you have to soak again with the clean trax, use vet wrap to hold up the bag, and go up the leg a bit with it. Works like a charm!

    Hope your guy feels better soon.
