Put the tulip-shaped point protectors on double-pointed knitting needles and use them as single-pointed needles.
The protectors keep your stitches from slipping off the needle when you put your work down. Protectors are light, easy to put on and won’t slip off. Tulip-shaped point protectors won’t roll off the table, unlike rounded and conical ones.
Also can be used as point protectors for small sharp embroidery scissors instead of scissor sheath or case.
