I used to close mine all the time, but it's such a PITA that I have stopped... I know... I might start again though.
OP--- Is the tube faded and old? Mine were in horrible shape and I couldn't see thru them either. VERY brittle too! I just replaced my plastic tubes a few weeks ago. Pretty easy job on Skinny Dippin' and now they are easy to see.
