A New Fold?

If this *is* new I want to call it the Triangle Fold.
  1. Flatten the cup.

  2. Fold one end of the flattened opening down to meet the base of the cup so the opening and left side of the cup are alongside each other.

  3. Hold the bit where they meet to insert it.

  4. When you insert it, you will hopefully find (as I do) that as soon as the base of the cup is a little way inside it pops open to exactly the right spot when you let go.


It's like an extreme 7-Fold which is how it came about - I settled on a 7-Fold but then just noticed one day that what I was using wasn't really a proper 7-Fold anymore!
My grip isn't all that strong, but I manage this with my Lunette as well despite it being much stiffer than my Mooncup UK.
