    Part of my EDC is a tube vault containing a tube of super glue and a few safety pins. So far, so good.

    Using a toothbrush holder for zip ties is a great idea!

    The only thing that is worse is a buddy to took a G19 and traced on a piece of sheet metal and slipped it in another buddy's carry on.

    Do people seriously not take a final check of their bags prior to flying? >.>;

    That's just wrong. I don't care fro practical jokes in general, but this is really going too far! :(

    Probably not if they just packed the bags themselves. Besides, a thin sheet of metal could be easily overlooked, even if they did check it.

    The company I work for supply a proper zip tie dispenser similar to pictured one but better quality in red steel free of charge to certain customers and we sell it to others.
    Another easy idea I have seen done on many occasions is to use the welding rod containers when they become empty, cut down to a suitable size and use a decent glue to stick them together at different heights, works a treat and look ok.

    I just wrapped mine in my oblong paracord bundle. They've held up in my lower left cargo pocket for 6 months so far. ;)

    Wind some duct tape around one end and you can fix alot of stuff. If you're not comfortable with superglue how about a low temp glue stick.

    Clever idea, but why tape the drain holes? Are they really that big that the ties fall out?

    Hmmm, with my luck the tape would fall off and then I'd dump or lose all my ties. I think I'd cut a snug disc out of something like a plastic milk jug and push it down inside to cover the hole.

    The holes were just big enough to let out one at a time and trust me, that Gorilla tape is not coming off ;D
