Yes, that's what I found - hence the putty. It works, you can tune it a bit to achieve what you need. Also tried the tail rubbers approach but didn't like the way they protruded from the lead.

If it helps I used to use thin stiff tubing through the lead pushed into a rubber tulip bead at the base of the lead.

Oh really, I found they gripped the lead just enough for a slight bolt effect before the lead Is realeased off the tail rubbers.

I believe they are called tail rubbers, the ones that would go into the back of the lead clip or the inlines for the tubing to go into hope that makes sense.

I use the korda sleeve that would go on the back if the plastic insert
that the anti tangle tubing would go into, find it grips the swivel nicely

Thanks, I've seen this video and it's exactly what I'm trying to achieve, however I find those anti tangle sleeves to be a bit loose, maybe the putty trick will help.

I use a similar set-up to the one in this video (hopefully the link works):

YouTube Carp TV

Only difference is leaders are banned where I fish so I use tubing. It's fiddly (but possible) to get the anti tangle sleeve over the tubing. You can also put a little bit of pop-up putty into the lead void if you find the lead is dropping away too easily for your liking. Using a ring swivel, you end up with a neat presentation with just the ring protruding from a korda in-line.

Thanks for your replies, I guess I'll have to go to a shop and have a "play."

They wonít fit Korda in-line leads Iíve tried with the inserts shown in Kens pictures
Them leads seem to be hard to come by now for some reason in the pics, found a shop and bought a good few not long ago as I think they are one of the safest inline leads available.
The new leads Fox do with plastic inserts in I have you canít get a kwik change swivel in the sleeve unless I am missing something ?? Not that it matters as bought them ones for inline drop offs with the plastic sleeve removed

Been a few years since I last tried but the hole in the Fox leads was always bigger than the Korda leads so it didnít fit properly

...will these sleeves fit leads from other companies too? Sorry but I'm afraid that I cannot advise on that point.

These two pix illustrate what I mean about the Fox inlines. One point I should make; if you test the set up dry the lead will seem to stick; try it wet and see what happens!

Thanks Ken, sounds perfect......

Are all in-lines fairly standard in size, i.e. will these sleeves fit leads from other companies too?

As you can gather I don't use inlines that often

Most of the inline leads I have used over the years have been Fox. The sleeve grips the swivel tightly but if needed the lead slips off easily, leaving the sleeve behind.
