So you never had that last paintball stuck in the bottom of the tube. They also didn't have the rings around the outside of the tube, just smooth down the entire sides. They were easy to cut out with scissors. The one's these days are almost impossible to cut like this. Later on Adventure Game Supplies (then TASO) came out with an actual cover kit you could buy, but they were much thicker than the tube material. We old crawling players put these in place to keep out the dirt.
These were original TASO slot covers I have always loved them.
