The rubber straps from the shoulder rest, which should protect the violin surface, dissolved over time. We used a package of Sugru to fix it. A plastic wrap helped that the Sugru does not stick to the wood; the Sugru can then be modelled to perfectly fit to that specific instrument.
The pictures show the shoulder rest before fixing, while modeling the Sugru and the finished thing.
