A step in one of the analyses we do in our lab involves connectin g Tygon tubing to the end of a glass tube.  We have Kevlar gloves for t his purpose, but I’ve heard of an additional safety device that can al so be used for this purpose—though I can’t find one.  IR 17;ve done the obligatory Google search with no luck.  Has anyone heard of or used anything that reduces the risk of getting cut while attaching ho se/tubing to glass tubes or rods?
Many thanks; I hope everyone has a great weekend!
