Just made one and it's awesome! I can't seem to figure out what the side 'C' shaped structure is for though. Any help?

Thanks for getting back to me! I realize why the interior pin is there, and also know it is NOT meant to puncture the tube, but merely to plug it to help prevent drying and oozing. I think the pin needs to be thicker so it will be stronger and not as prone to breakage if your device is not put on and removed carefully. This problem would be easily solved with a better building material than I am using(ABS) as well. Keep up the great work!

I made this great idea, see downloaded photo. Unfortunately, as it stands, it is not durable enough for the task at hand. If it is thickened up that may help considerably. It may not LOOK quite as appealing, but it will likely function better. Finally, I am not quite sure what the cylindrical tube with the split side is to be used for. To store it somewhere while not in use? I really like the idea and the design though GREAT JOB!!!
