I have a broken left pinky, which makes it hard to reach some of the keys (worse on a sax), and often pulls my ring finger out of position on C#4/G#5. I've taken two approaches.
1. I added an extension to the C#/G# key using a moldable plastic generally used for making medical casts. It can be softened in hot water, cools hard, and can be sanded or filed. I attached it to the key using double-sided tape. But sometimes the pinky position makes me uncover the C4/G5 hole.
2. I sent my #1 clarinet to Stephen Fox to put a plateau key on the C4/G5 hole. He is working on it now. Hopefully when my ring finger gets moved by extending my pinky, it will still be able to push down the key.
