That's true, its mostly in my pocket, but sometimes I do misplace it. The thread was because somehow it went into a different partition on its own, spent an hour looking for it, and gave up. Ordered new lens cap and kood lens keeper, at least its on the kood. I know it isn't the perfect solution, but I have to do something to keep it in placeTo me it would be annoying to have something dangling from the end of my lens. When the cap comes off it goes in my left pocket. Same thing everytime, haven't lost one yet. Now those %$&^%# plastic covers for the hot shoe that's another story. I buy them by the box.
