    It also helps cut down on wear and tear on the nylon-ish tip of the solder sucker which (over time) ends up getting melted otherwise. Haven't replaced the end on mine in years, but the rubber sleeves are dead easy to replace.

    It helps because you can get away with being slightly off axis and still get good suction contact.
