This is a little thing i made because i kept dropping lens caps and losing them! I ended up dropping one off the deck while doing night "astro-photography". i found it two days later with a hunk taken out of it from the lawnmower >_< *facepalm*
BUT now that i have this nifty contraption, i can just whip the lens of and let it haaaaannngg Haha! no more dropped and lost lenses!

I've done similar with my lenses, but with the addition of a small clip araldited to the front of the lens cap, the sort of thing that holds a mobile phone hands-free set to your collar. Once the lens cap is off the lens, just clip it to the strap, and no dangling or catching on things!

Could put a dab of silicon sealer over each hole...or use a sturdy, heated sewing needle help with pliers to make smaller holes, just large enough for the cording to go through.

As for me this allows dust to get to the lens while i.e. the camera is in a bag. So better get an lens pen also.
