Im getting old. My eyes are not what they used to be, my memory is less than perfect. I wont even talk about my cardio or need to loose weight..

One thing that frustrates me to no end, is being on set and wanting to change the power of one specific flash... and forgetting what it's assigned I.D. is!

My solution was to make identification bands out of some scrap PVC pipe I had lying around and place them on my light stands.

Once completed, I used them on my next set, and it was AWESOME! I hope you find this useful. Thanks for looking.

Great idea. Sort of like the I.D. rings my wife places on our wine glasses when we are entertaining...
