Question Protection from vacuum nozzle marks

I've noticed that if I'm not careful when vacuuming interior plastics, the vacuum nozzle can leave a mark. Are there any specific aftermarket vacuum nozzles that have a softer end/edge than the standard hard plastics? Or does anyone have a hack to avoid this problem?

Its not a nozzle but you can use duck tape to tape the edges.

You could use gaffer tape or file/sand down any sharp edges on the tip of the vaccing tool

Here's an idea.
Have a small piece of MF covering the end of the nozzle held in place tightly with elastic band.
Cut a small hole in the center at the nozzle opening.
Voila.......non scratching nozzle

Sand down the edges! I’ve never had any marks from the nozzle

I’ve noticed a non genuine Henry replacement nozzle did cause scratching. I’ve tried 3 time at ordering from amazon (seller amazon) and each time they send me an non OEM one.
