I use a Nikon 1.4x teleconverter with my 300mm F/4 lens for wildlife sessions and I've noticed that it is very easy to nudge the teleconverter's lever and this would be disastrous in the field (or anywhere else, for that matter.) Is there any way to conveniently and cleanly prevent movement of this button until it is desired?

I've searched the forums with no success but a brief perusal of Lens Coat's site shows a neoprene cover for the converters and I suppose that if one were to cover the button with this that some degree of protection would be given. Does anyone have any tips for this problem.

TIA
Lee
