Hackle Guards?

I'm looking to buy a hackle gard or set of hackle guards to hold hackle, wings. etc. out of the way as I finish the head of the fly. Are there any hackle guards out there that slide on to the hook and stay in place without having to hold them? I would like to free up both hands for tying. Any recommendations on hackle guards that meet these criteria?

Also do you guys think that hackle guards are necessary or helpful or are there other tricks to easily finish the head of a dry fly? I'm finding it hard to hold everything back with my fingers as I finish the head. Suggestions?
