    Many of our older reference books in our high school library have a plastic “finger hook” attached to the top of the spine. It assists when students want to pull a book off the shelves. They simply place a finger inside the “hook” and pull, thus protecting the book’s end cap. Do you know what these “finger hooks” are called? They are clear. They adhere to the book’s cover front and back at the top, but the “hook” part is plastic and not sticky. I am hoping to find more of these to add to some of our older reference books, but I do not know what they are called. Any ideas?

    Hi, Melissa,
    I checked with John Ison, and he was unfamiliar with this product. However, our product manager will look into it, as it sounds like a neat idea! John also mentioned that clear plastic book wings can offer a lot of protection against torn head caps caused by pulling the books off the shelf.
    Thanks so much for sharing this information!

    Can you kindly recommend which products are best for children’s (heavily used, often thinner and larger) softcover books? I was grateful for the recommendation in the related hardcover post. Thank you kindly!
