Looking at the way the splint bends id be slightly wary of catching it on something.

I'd probably try to cut the end of the splint off anyway. Can't see much point having it sticking out miles past the finger (unless the pic is misleading).

It catches on everything. It's too long for getting sleeves on and off.

They deliberately left it like that though. they said it was a nice curved end and I guess it protects the end of the finger a bit. I do feell like it's at least half an inch too long though.

Common sense prevailed. I'm off hiking instead 😀
