You could close one of the loops a bit more, leave just a narrow slot, and it would hold in the elastic band so the two would always be together, ready to use. Hopefully I explained that right.

My 'mark one' design for this had a closed side.

However, I didn't like having to babysit the print to get the band in there, and neither did I fancy the idea of melted rubber band on my HPB :)

It does work though, you just have to sit there and hold the rubber band waiting for the right time to put it in.

Perfectly suited for a just-in-case Altoids tin.
