Miniplane cage assembly

Just a minor gripe I'm having with my Miniplane cage.

During assembly/disassembly of the cage ring, I get some very fine glass splinters in my fingers- not very sore, but very irritating.

Any way of avoiding this? Maybe just using leather gloves for the operation would cure it, but would be interested in hearing anyone elses experiences.

Had a similar problem a few years back with some windsock ground spikes- I stopped using them for this reason.

Update: Just discovered a way to prevent this.

As the flibre glass continually flexes during it's life, the top layers 'delaminate' and shed some fine splinters, which pass through the outer nylon sheath, and can easily penetrate skin. Covering the poles in electrical 'shrink wrap' reduces the amount of shedding,but preserves the flexibility/performance of the poles.
