Dear Floppy... How Do I Measure A Teardrop Plug?

Teardrop Plugs

Mommy and Daddy got this question a lot when they first started making teardrop plugs. They had a test group of people, and many of them said the plugs looked small but fit great. The shape was misleading! So, some were curious and asked how to measure them. Good news... it's so easy even a bunny like me can do it. Here's how...

  1. Raid your junk drawer (every good home has one) and find some string.
  2. Tightly wrap the string around the innermost surface of the teardrop and mark off where they meet.
  3. Now, use a millimeter ruler and measure that distance. Take that measurement and divide it by pi (3.14.) That's your gauge size. For example, a measurement of 63mm on the string would be about a 20mm gauge.
Mommy and Daddy say that it's important to remember that nothing is exact. There are always slight differences in any set of gauges that happen through the normal course of production. But, using this method, you can tell with the highest degree of accuracy what size teardrops you have.
That string we were just talking about sounds like a fun play toy. I'm gonna go find some now...
