Here, they are secured by ribbed rubber bands just large enough to fit over the barrel of the lens or camera body. Just the job to prevent focus shift and zoom creep when put in the right place. I've already ordered a set of ten "LiveSTRONG" yellow wrist bands for my yellow Pentax K-T01 mirrorless camera's 10-17mm fisheye zoom, but I read lots of comments about how easily they snap. If I run out, obliging store assistants are always ready to pass over one or two of these security bands. They seem quite thick and strong, and come in a wide range of sizes. Just the job, in fact!
