    tomseabrook got a reaction from Jewel in Rondo2: securing replacement leash to clip   
    I was at the clinic yesterday for routine check over and we got talking about this. Not necessarily about the breaking as I have not had that issue but the fact that it is very difficult to get the leash back on wen you change covers. The 'solution' (which should address breakages too) they use is to go back to the old fishing wire type leash (a la Rondo 1), make a loop in the end and loop it round the comms port cover, then close it. Working fine so far and won't come of when the cover needs changing.

    It is a leash from a RONDO 1. They attached to a pair of small holes on the side and the loop held it secure. On RONDO 2, open the rubber port on the bottom, loop the loop around the lower part where it hinges and close it back up. I'm not taking credit for it but it is a very good solution.

    You might recognise one of the surnames in the link which is my very clever daughter who is off to Innsbruck as a prize for inventing this. Unfortunately the development costs will be astronomical and far too much for us but we are in touch with a couple of other clever people who are looking at developing similar things.

    As things stand, I know people have used baseball batting helmets although being UK based I have no idea how good a baseball helmet would be on a bike! Better than nothing though I expect.

    So you just create a loop inside the processor and the lid holds it.  Great, thanks for the input.

    Thanks Sandy, music was a big deal for me, I was really into my sounds when I was younger, I have a huge vinyl collection. That was probably the worst thng about going deaf for me, if I knew what song it was I could just about follow it but that was it. Then, about 3 months after my switch on, I was in the kitchen washing up, we had the radio on quiet as we always do, and Does Your Mother Know by Abba came on the radio and I recognised it. I'll never forget that, neck and neck as the biggest moment of life with a CI (the other was driving the car and being able to understand the news and traffic reports on the radio for the first time. And now I listen to songs on YouTude and Apple Music and I've even cranked up the old vinyl on occasion. My musical education stopped in about 1995 but most people tell me I've missed nothing important.
