Handy Lens Cap Clip

We’ve covered a couple of clever len-cap-retaining tricks before. My favorite is probably the “lens cap buckle” strap attachment Adam covered back in June, which I like because it requires no modification of the lens cap itself. But this recently crowd-funded stick-on Nice Clip product has a lot going for it, too: It’s cheaper, for one, and with it you can clip the cap onto whatever is handy, which is useful it you don’t use a strap, or don’t have yours on-hand for whatever reason. If you’re not too picky about looks, it’s also easy to DIY this idea with a lapel clip and a bit of double-stick tape. [Thanks, Udi!]

Take control of your lens cap!
