You keep loosing these RF Wind Sock?

Being tired loosing expensive Wind Socks for your RF Microphones during a field shoot?
But  you  need them  no matter what. I make a couple before going out on location shoots

When shooting video outside on location, you have to deal with Wind  hitting the  RF mic. After loosing a couple of  Wind socks during a field exercise, I can up with a temporary solution, one that i'd like to share with  you.

You'll need:
1. Matt Knife
2. Rubber bands (1 or  2 depending)
3. Foam from Pelican Case or equivalent (1 Inch x 1 Inch square, 1 Inch thick)

Make incision from the bottom to the middle of the cut  foam, Wrap the foam around the Mic, Secure  the temp Wind sock with  Robber Band. Leave room for the Lapel Clip. Use a pair of scissors to round up the extra foam. I used a Sharpie Black Permanent and run it against the rubber bands to make the  yellow go away.
I am  working on getting a Temporary Lapel Clip build from Gator clip,  paper clip etc, will post soon.
