    Great video, well done [IMG]

    I could see myself buying something like this for the right price. I'd be a little worried about the staples scratching metal items though, I would prefer an alternative personally.

    Thinking stitching for vertical, velkro for horizontal (so you can adjust spaces to suit you)

    Great stuff, thanks for the video.

    Am considering making something similar but with snaps on the elastic so it's reconfigurable. Not sure how buttons will hold on elastic though. To be continued..

    You could stitch the elastic-did it as a keychain silencer, and it's been great so far (about half a year on various keychains)

    Or you could simply gorilla tape over the staples or use some heat shrink.

I jst went through Skinth site and the P3, albeit tempting, costs $30 a piece...but this...this is freaking cheap!! And it's DIY! Can make it as gigantic or miniscule i want to fit my EDC stuffs. Great idea MinimumEffort!

    Thanks guys.

    After using it for a few weeks, I noticed 1 thing: the elastic needs to be grippier, smaller objects like peanut capsules, keys etc are OK, but heavier ones like multitools can fall off in your pocket eventually, I guess this could be solved by tightening things further, but the truth is finding a better gripper elastic would improve this greatly.


    Any ideas?

    The grid-its use a rubber lined elastic... Might work:rolleyes:

    clever, simple, cheap and easy DIY.
    I like it, based on your idea why not use elastic cord instead of elastic band and do some holes on card to fix the cord there?

    No, i didn't decide the amount of lines... i cut the base and then i realize that i never measure XD... i would like a 5x4 or bigger... so i will have to make another one for my PD10, leatherman juice, etc :D (and i'm thinking that i will use a wider elastic...
