    Re: Keeping the lid of a tub securely closed?

    I went to the dollar tree when i was using tubs i bought ornament hangers the ones u use for hanging christmas tree bulbs. i then drilled hole between the top of the lid and in the edge of the tub where they connect and put them through and twisted it shut. that seemed to be pretty sturdy worth a try

    This reminded me that I've seen someone use leash clips in the past, through holes in the edge of the tub where the lid connects, in the same way you do. I think this is a good idea.

    Re: Keeping the lid of a tub securely closed?

    I saw luggage straps at the store the other day that looked like they'd work just like tie downs, except easier to operate.

    They were 2" or so thick nylon straps with big plastic buckles and adjusters. If you got them nice and snug and clipped them on, it may be easier to use than tie downs. (I know it would be for me... I can never get tie downs to work on the first try) Or even just less extra material.
