I could never get those thin lego pieces to separate. The cap would be permanently attached to my strap. Lol:-)

I think velcro would do a better job. For me always putting the cap in the same pocket keeps me from loosing it. Just like car keys.

good to see another dad here.

other than what you've said, leggos are so freaking sharp. I find it hard to believe they can't round the corners just a bit. not so much that it's obvious but just enough to get a finger nail in and when a corner hits you it doesn't draw blood. Speaking of blood, i can see the corner of that black lego ripping my hand or shirt or even shoulder open.

i rock the front pocket tee (or long sleeve tee) for lens caps. just perfect.

and if it's formal, a button down does the same.

sorry to bust on the idea dave, maybe there's somewhere else we could mount the black lego that would be more out of the way. The top of a baseball hat?

Lol, no bubble popped here. I just thought I'd Share. Velcro would be better, but unlike you guys, I think lego is awesome! I even purchased some rare sets I had when I was a kid!

not a bad idea, but I just stick the cap in my back pocket

And Lego is quite neat :-)

well, before I was able to put a cap in my pocket, somebody knocked me and I dropped the cap in a a beautiful canal in Venice. Now I got one of those http://www.amazon.com …-Cap-Holder/dp/B000NM1A9K (external link)

How do I explain to the granddaughters that I am the one who took their lego pieces? You do know they come in sets now?

Why not just use Velcro?

Lens caps? You mean those things I leave in the box the lens came with?
