Then, you will need to cut a piece of duct tape about an inch bigger than the bottom of the pocket pal. Next, you need to place the piece of duct tape on the bottom of your pocket pal like picture #1.
Then, fold the piece over, so it covers the entire bottom like in picture #2. Then, trim off the scraps like in picture #3.

Step 5: Extra Pocket

Wanna take it a step further? Then, add another pocket.
First, cut another piecce of tape 1/2" bigger than the bottom of the Pocket Pal as in picture #1.
Then, cut another piece of tape 1" smaller than the previous one like in picture #1.
Next, shave a centimeter off the top of the smaller piece of tape like picture #2.
After that, put the two pieces together like in picture #3.
Finally, put the pieces of tape on the Pocket Pal like in picture #4
Sticky line on the bottom.
I made one of these for each pocket, and a pocket protector to fit in my sirt pocket. I also made an oversized pocket that hung off my belt, it held a lot of things. (zip ties, pliers, a battery pack with cell phone adapter, a protractor, a pair of scissors, a set of hexagonal screwdrivers, a calculator, a pencil and pen case, a set of 3 clips, an eraser,and a set of screwdrivers.
I second that... you should post a pic. Sounds great.
omfg you NEED to post a pic of that!(as a comment)

so...a weird wallet?
Cool! Very easy idea, but what does it actually do? It's just like a holder... but nice job. :P
Yeah, it's just to hold you cash, change, and gift cards. Thanks for the comment!

Is this for an ID holder? Credit card holder? A quick wallet? Nice idea though.
Thanks! I use it for all three.
