Protect your Open Reed Calls Reeds from damage while in your pocket or on your lanyard. Slip the elastic band around the tone board and over the reed for a noise free, protected call. Nothing worse than to get out on a stand and find the reed in your favorite call has been bent, broken, or damaged in someway that it is of no use! Frustrating is beyond words. The attached lanyard goes around the call, so you will not lose the reed protector. Cheap insurance for your expensive calls, and to save the day on the stand!!
