Good morning everyone!
I see a lot of pics on here of people working on their property with their JD's and the end caps are usually hanging down where they can snag and be torn off.
The quickest and cheapest way I have found is to use a couple of zip ties to keep them up out of the way. That way they can't snag on anything and they will always be there when you want to take the FEL off and use the caps to keep the dirt out of the connection fittings.
I saw a pic on another thread today of someone who got frustrated and cut them off.
So anyway, just my 2 cents on what to do if you don't like them hanging down either..
Enjoy your day!
