Mr. Ammar,
First off, I have a girl named Savannah also, she is also 5 1/2. Congrats on the children.
As for the topit, I practice diligently but kepp having the same recurring problem. My shirt tends to come untucked a little on the left side and the flaop tends to come out a little. Any help for both. I tried shirt garters for the shirt problem but couldn't really find anything to work for the flap. YOur help is grealy appreciated. Thanks for your time. (I love your cups and balls also)

Hi Travis,

This is an important issue -- if the flap comes out a bit and there is too much play in the material, that is going to work against you. I'm sure you've tried tightening your belt, because that is an important issue, but there is more to it than that.

One thing that I've done to help keep the flap in, is to add a patch of material to the end of the 'tail.' This is from a washcloth, the rather fluffy, terrycloth material. This extra patch of highly textured material helps to keep the flap tucked firmly into the pants, helping to keep the Topit well positioned for accurate use. This helped me a lot!

Mr. Ammar,
Thank you so much for your reply and taking time for us here at the Café. I will ad said material tonight before I start to practice as the extra material sems to stop the toss sometimes. Thanks again and best of luck in the future.

I wonder if it would help to install those little holes inside your front pant pockets. I don't know what they're called but these holes are often found inside tuxedo pants and are designed to allow you to pull your shirt in when needed. There's no reason why you need to restrict this to your shirt. Simply pull the excess fabric from the topit just before you are about to perform. Just a thought.

If I'm understanding this correctly, the piece with the extra material would be inside the pants. So I don't think it would interfere with the toss.

It would be in the pants, but as the thing backs out, it can interfere. The extra material is supposed to prevent tha backing out. For the record. It works. I havetried it already with a plush wash rag and lo and behold. It worked. Even while bending/moving around. Some of the best advie I have gotten. It was such a simple fix but I never would have thought of it. the shirts it self gets in the way if it backs out but shirt garters have workd okay for that problem.
