Geno nice hack! I use plexi glass and tape. My shop is by a company that makes windows and signs so they have loads of plexi glass scraps around for the grabbing or glass lots of glass. I usually just tape down the plexi glass and thats good enough but I have actually cut some to shape or do what I did in 7th grade with a few tea candles and actually heat up the plexi glass and fold it so I can tuck the shirt in.
