Front brake lever "finger stop"

I have fitted a simple little mod to the front brake lever so that my hand grips the lever in the same place when braking.
I found that my fingers tended to slip to the left towards the lowest part of the lever therefore getting less leverage so I pushed a grommet (as used on electrical socket boxes) over the ball end and fixed in place with two zip ties, one around the grove in the grommet and the other, slightly larger on the lever next to it,
I have run this for a week and find it nice to rest my finger against.
The grommet has to be fitted in a position so that the lever still has full travel as on my bike I have heated grips and the flex end is quite large so I made sure it would not touch.
