    Neat, but a couple square inches of industrial hook-and-loop glued and stitched to the strap and caps would work even better.  Even better, if you shoot with multiple lenses, the sticky version doesn’t require multiple adapters.

    For most people reading this blog, you’d probably be able to do it for free, given the typical Maker scrap box.

      exactly what I do!  not hook-and-loop, though. I use this stuff for just about EVERYTHING needing temporarily fastened  http://www.3m.com/product/information/Dual-Lock-Reclosable-Fastener.html . best part is it doesn’t wear out like hook/loop does

    So obviously a good idea it is surprising it has not been on the market all along. Congratulations.
