Disney Pin Trader - Pin Holder/Hip Lanyard (water-proof, loss-proof)

It is water-proof, double-sided, and prevents pin loss.  (And doesn't cost as much as a Disney lanyard or hip lanyard)

Necessity is the mother of invention.  That is why I came up with this pin holder for going to the Disney theme parks.  I didn't want to leave my nicer pins at home.  I wanted to show them off.  That is what presented a problem:  How to keep my pins safe at the parks?  I have heard horror stories and seen first hand that pins can just fall off in the parks and are never seen again, and I really didn't want that to happen.  Those little rubber Mickey backs aren't that sturdy, and the locking backs are expensive and require a special key to come undone and there are dozens of stories online about how they are faulty.  

So I designed this specialized hip lanyard!
