I have no idea if this goes on the mod forum. Seemed like the most appropriate place…
So, I really like the idea of yoyo holesters. It both displays your yoyo and unclutters your pockets. However, there was always one problem with them that always bothered me.
There was no place to put the counterweight!
In a regular holster, the counterweight would hang below the yoyo, swinging everywhere, unraveling, and just generally being a pain.
So, after some thought, I came up with this design. It’s a piece of wood that slides onto pretty much any carabiner. It has two hooks that hold the counterweight (Duncan Dice, that is) in such a way that it easily slides in and out, but won’t slip out walking, running, jumping, turning quickly, etc.
Without the yoyo
The design isn’t intrusive and doesn’t interfere with normal holster use.
This is just a proof of concept that doesn’t look very good. I’m not the best wood shaper. Hopefully I’ll have a nicer one soon - I can finally use a holster!
Hopefully this is something the makers of the more fancy holsters will consider.
Let me know what you think!
