I got it a couple of years ago from the local camping shop - £9.99 - I thought "a bargain - that'll come in handy one day", got home, put it in the loft and there it's stayed, until now. One of those rare items that actually does come in handy one day.

I thought it particularly useful with the different size pockets.
No manufacturer label unfortunately.

The camping shop is not a chain but I guess places like Go Outdoors might stock them - maybe even Outdoor Bits!
Looks like the Fiamma Pack Organizer without Fiamma Red on it

When confronted by a problem, you can solve it easily by reducing it to the question, "How would the Lone Ranger have handled this?"

Knicker Elastic

Those little lockers above the oven/sink, even though very shallow, are very useful but we found things kept falling out and I didn't want to put in something hard and permannent to hold things in so.........a length of knicker elastic gives just enough retention to keep things in place.

I got a couple of locker nets from a boat chandlers - same idea but they stop the tea bags from falling through..............

This one is only for monocoques with sliding side windows.

I'm not a security freak but I was looking at the sliding window catches and the words "drill a small hole" came to mind. So easy to open from the outside.

I scratched around in my O&S boxes in my shed and came up with this.

A good 2 minutes work to make!

It's around 7mm dia rigid plastic tubing - actually the upright riser of a garden sprinkler system.

The key fobs just make handles and makes them visible from the outside.

I've been looking for something exactly like that for my Symphony (not a monocoque but uses the same catches). I hope you'll be putting the idea on the AS forum.

Not sure I'll live long enough to master the photo loading process


ps I have a bundle of the plastic tubing if you can't find anything suitable in your shed.
