Got some nice stubbie Onza bar ends to put on the Hyperlites for my Zaskar. A lot of the Hyperlites i've seen have crimped ends if bar ends are fitted. What's the best way to avoid this (aside not fitting them)?

Hyperlites originally came with 1" plastic inserts to reinforce the ends, but i don't have these.

Wasn't someone on here making up metal inserts for just that purpose?

Got them in my hyperlites - didn't stop the crimping.

I reckon oak's the way forward. More retro too.
