I put those soft rubber bits on my pipes. Makes things much more comfortable for me, and I like not having teeth marks in the stem. However, I've got a couple pipes that have small stems, and the bits keep coming off in my mouth.
Do those things come in sizes at all? Are there smaller one I could get? I don't think I've ever seen any.

If that doesn't work, a trip to the tubing section at the hardware store ought to turn up something that will do the job. Personally, I can't use them, they make me gag. I'm always looking for as little bit in my mouth as possible.
I purchase mine by the bushel on eBay, yeah there Chinese made but, they are cheaper and you get a whole lot more and, they come in several sizes. If you have a vintage pipe with a very small bit you may not find one to fit it but, I have several sizes of bits and I've been able to fit them all with one. I believe if memory serves me correct that I have 9mm, 11mm and one other size I don't recall in softies I've purchased from eBay, all the same maker I believe also.
