I think the 300 f4 will be my next purchase, and I had this idea. Is there space on the body to attach one of these?

it would require some clearance btw the hood and body, but if you put it in the right spot it should friction lock the hood in place.
Curious photos you supplied.  Yes, an oversized translucent condom tends to "friction lock" things "if you put it in the right spot."  I don't view this as advantageous.  I have a "space on the body" for such a device, but I cannot comment usefully if you do as well.   If you lack sufficient clearance "btw the hood and body" you may want to consider other options.  :P   :)

hahaha nice one  ;). they are actually urethane buttons, about 5mm wide and 1mm tall, like you find on the underside of some electronics. what i meant was to put one on the LENS body, so that the hood stays retracted and doesn't fall to the extended position. hopefully that makes my entendre a little more singular!

As I mentioned in a previous post the hood on my 300 F4 L IS does not creep under any circumstances that I have yet encountered, nor does a friends (much more heavily used) one. I haven't heard of this from the numerous local 400 F5.6 users either.
Is it the Welsh climate???
