Black hair elastics. I double-looped one around my gorillapod and put a cheap carabiner on it. Now when I head out with the little camera, I can clip the little tripod on my bag, or the diaper bag, or even a belt loop if I really want to look crazy. They also can be looped or threaded around straps in various fashions to keep them from flopping around. I saw that somebody was using them to fix a light leak at a lens mount on some other camera recently (not Canon).
