how to keep from losing it!,
This review is from: Leatherman 931009 Silver Bit Driver Extender (Tools & Home Improvement)
performs as advertised and reviewed here. Would have given it 5 stars except that I've lost - and found - mine twice, because it manages to slip out of the side pocket on the leather case for the Charge. Truth is, the case is what should lose a star because of this, not the extension.
My first solution was to slip a clip off of a throw-away pen and slide it over the shank of the Extension so it grabs the side of the pocket, but I still lost it once with this. Next, I drilled a small hole through the flat part of the shank and put a springy ring from a door key through it, and threaded the lanyard for the quick-release ring that attaches to the Charge through this ring as well. So far, so good!

Or you can do what I did- loop a rubber band right above the knurled part (the one towards the socket end). Slide it socket end first down onto the elastic side "pocket" and now it's snug and perfect.

I too was concerned about losing it from the Charge side pocket. I used heat shrink tubing on the larger end and a portion of the shank. Three layers is just about right - small end in first with the socket end fitting tight in the elastic. Now my complaint is getting the bits to release from the end of the extension without having to use the pliers. Thank you for the review.
