I did not know what you were talking about so I used the Google, which showed me both an Amazon web page and a Lowe's web page, both of which showed the product along with the notation that this product is currently unavailable.



A mind is a terrible thing.

Telford takes the magnetic advertising that you are supposed to put on your refrigerator
and snips a tiny piece off of it,

then he glues that to the straw,
then he just sticks the straw to the side of the can or tool box.

yeah , he said that rubber bands only work for so long,
he thinks that the WD
eats at the rubber band and it eventually snaps off

he has two dozen of them stuck all over the place[/QUOTE]

This idea is GOLDEN!!![/QUOTE]

Never had any size complaints... that a couple guys mentioned. Big Grin

But seriously, I have at least 12 cans of various items on hand and they all interchange.



Deplorable before deplorable was cool!

Before I retired , I used to order supplies for our crews . I would order lubricants and other canned products by the case . This one particular manufacturer would put all of the straws in an envelope and place it in the box . We always had a pile of those envelopes on the shelf . When I left I grabbed a handful . I'm good for a few decades I think .

Come'on guys, it's not rocket science. A bag of 1,000 rubber bands for 2 bucks and you're good to go. geesh!

Although I do like the knitted holster idea. Big Grin
