Multitool and Ranger Band: Improvised Clamp

   I was repairing some wiring on our ancient ATV after it got chewed on by one of the cows. Every time I touched the wires with my soldering iron they would move. After several frustrating tries this idea came to me!
 I put a ranger band around the handles and they worked like a pair of improvised hemostats. I've used this more than a couple of times for various jobs when I needed a third hand.
 I usually carry a spare band attached to my MT sheath just for this reason.
Stay safe
