Rubber stopper tool suggestion

Hey everyone, what do you use for disassemblies when trying to get a good grip on inner rings? I know most say rubber stoppers, but is there a particular kind you use, or a tool specifically for such purposes?

Take the lens to the hardware store and find a rubber sink stopper that fits.

I have made my own tool on the lathe custom fit for 49mm takumars. If interested i could turn you one but sink stopper is cheaper.

Sink stopper or pads for under furniture legs work well. Plastic snap on can caps like on shaving cream can work too if you cover the rim with plastic electrical tape to give it some grip.
