I like your idea, but i don't get where you are putting the hairband.

I'm putting it down around the end it is hard to see the bands are
clear I just slide it up or down to get the right grip on the plug
has worked out fine so far makes it a lot easier just push it on
and pull it off

Hotshot wont lock on any plug that has the hex go all the way down to the threads.There has to be a space between the hex & head button,thats what all plugs looked like way back when the hotshot ignitor was designed but not so any more.

So losi_racer let me get this straight,they lock on all plugs except the plugs that you found that they dont lock on? WHAT?
