So, fear of losing that tiny plastic cap that "protects" your Mabooks MagSafe?  Here are simple steps.
You need:
1- thick needle or sharp point of any kind (use a needle like point, that is, not the same diameter but thin at the start and thicker at the base)
1- 5cm or longer nylon cord

Step 1: Punch the cap

Step 2: Make a nod

Take the nylon cord at one end and tie a nod, make at least 2 nods in the same end.

Step 3: Insert the nylon cord

Use the other end of the cord (the one without the nod) and insert it through the hole you punched in the cap.

Step 4: Tie the second nod

neat idea, though I think you're supposed to throw that cover away, not save it
