Colorado Neck Lanyard Option

I got one of the carabiner deals for my Colorado that wouldn't fit on the unit due to the way the strap was sewn. I was just about to cut the strap off and cannibalize the mount when I realized the strap will come off without cutting. I also noticed there was a small slot between the uppermost part of the mount and the Colorado case. Good place to tie something.

 

I dug through my crap drawer looking for an old cellphone lanyard -- I probably have half a dozen or more scattered throughout the house. In stead, I ran across an old ID badge necklace I had from a previous job. You know, the one with the plastic strap and snap that fits through a slot in a badge.

 

Guess what, that plastic strap will fit right through the slot and snap shut, giving you a functional neck lanyard. Worked well yesterday and gave me a secondary hold on my GPS.

Good suggestion. Thanks.
