How do I quit losing the cap on my flash drive? (Important technical question)

I have a Corsair flash drive, the one incased in rubber. I wear it on a lanyard and I've lost two caps already. A Corsair rep was nice enough to send me two spares and of course, I've already lost one. I am hesitant to put on the last one I have unless I can figure out some way to keep up with it.

Any suggestions?

(1) Put in on your keychain instead. So if it does go loose in transit, then it'll be in your pocket.

(2) My friend glued one end of a white rubber band to the drive and the other end to the cap. He's a dentist; he used a drill to create a small dimple in both parts, then used some dental material to glue the pieces for a permanent bond. He never loses the cap.

That's exactly how my teeth are done! He must know my dentist!

So you have 2 options. Go to dental school, or buy a new one with a swivel cap.
