Here’s one way to ‘secure’ items that need to be ‘tried on’ for what
ever reason & still leaving them accessible to the public.
Stop at a fishing tackle shop & get some 49 strand stainless steel
Cut the fishing leader into pieces aprox 24 inches long.
Drill a number of small holes in a flat piece of wood.
Using bead crimps or something similar wrap the end of a piece of
fishing leader through a ring shank & crimp it.
Place the other end through a hole in the piece of wood.
Place the end of the fishing leader through a hole & a key ring &
crimp it. The key ring should have enough weight to pull the fishing
leader back through the hole when the piece is released.
If your pieces are ‘one of a kind’, the item will have to be cut
from the leader if it’s sold. If each is a ‘sample’ the customer can
be given an item from stock.
This won’t work for cabs. About the only way these could be secured
is putting them in a case.
