    Made this recently with ear plug covers I got on a recent flight -

    The USB drives I had were missing their original covers (Don't ask how, or why, but I can explain one in a video below).

    The ear plug holders and the USB drives -

    Protective film in the form of insulation tape around one USB drive -

    And a Post-it wrapped around the other - :D

    Shoving one end into the ear plug cover -

    usb mod 04.jpg


    It fits! and pretty snug as well at that

    usb mod 05.jpg



    Now the other end to cap onto this end -

    usb mod 06.jpg


    Voila.. 5 minute Mod, but secures and saves my USB drive from moisture, dust and bumps!

    usb mod 08.jpg




    The reason for the stripped down USB drives?

    For another Pen Drive mod I had made some time back -

    Somehow I always get held for an extra round of checking these days at Airports & even train stations :/

    Its always, "stop the guy with the blue backpack and bring him here " :(

    Yea, nothing comes of it , they ask what I am carrying (usually the camera) and make open it up and pull all gear out and show em the empty bag - they scan it again and then its clear. Happened twice just recently.
