The Thimble Slide Is...
"The Thimble Slide is a mini-slide designed to be worn on the tip of your finger,
with the front edge about halfway to three-quarters down the fingernail toward the
base; 3rd finger recommended. Worn there you can still bend your knuckle; and it's
angled front allows enough fingertip through so you can still press the strings."
-- Cole Coleman; Inventor.

Find Your Size:
1. Place your slide finger (3rd finger) with a ruler or measure’s edge under the middle
of the fingertip - right in the middle of the fingernail. Match the photo example.
2. Using your smartphone/camera look straight down over your fingertip on the ruler and
move your finger so that it looks like it’s lined up on an inch line. Match the photo example.
Note: It will look different to your eyes - you must use the camera.
3. Snap the photo. Looking at your photo figure how many 16ths wide your measurement is - and
use the table below to find your size.
