Does anyone have a spare snoopy loop?

Hello, does anyone have a spare snoopy loop that I can use to attach my spanner to my arm on an upcoming caving expedition. I don't really know how to buy just one so I was wondering if anyone had a spare kicking around

I have had success attaching the spanner to my elbow pad with some elastic shock cord and then tucking the spanner into the elbow pad when not in use.

If you go to the Settle Pool pop up shop (just on the petrol station side of the Royal Oak) they had some skateboard elbow pads in last time I was there. I got a pair for £3 (from memory). I think at the time there were some children's sized ones.

Contact me directly if anything prevents Benfool from sorting you out with a snoopy as I could drop one off at work for you during the coming week. But the problem is finding a snoopy that's the right size. Ian P's suggestion of a bit of thin bungy may be better because it's adjustable.

Beware! Many years ago, when spits were in common use, a caving friend used this arrangement, but continued the bungee cord all the way to the spanner. One day he was in a crawl and noticed something dragging at his arm. Turning, he saw a stretched out bungee cord, with the spanner far in the distance behind him, jammed in a crack. Now what? His next move dislodged the spanner, which flew in to his face, cracking a tooth.
