If the bumping is occurring during feeding, here are two other suggestions:

Tong feed
or
Use a container (small sized pet pals work great) and cut a piece of soft foam (something with some give to it, not styro) to fit the bottom dimensions of the container. Put your food items in there and place it in the enclosure (preferably near a branch or perch of hers so she can easily see and access the food within). It will keep the crickets in one place and when your gecko goes after them ideally she'll bang her nose onto the foam instead of glass, plastic, etc.

Just make sure the sides of the container are opaque (you can use masking tape) otherwise your gecko may try to attack through the side and it will be even worse than without the container.

good luck
