Under The Hood: Keep 'Em Coupled!

Here's a trick I use to reduce unwanted break-in-twos at train shows and the like.  All you need is a black rubber hairband, as can be bought at Walleyworld.  A lifetime supply costs a dollar or so:

1) Slip the rubber band over one of the couplers.

2) Twist band, slip over other coupler, twist again to make sure it's tight:

3) Them little indefinites ain't going ANYWHERE, even if a knuckle opens!

You can also wrap one of the bands around an operating coupler to keep the latch from moving. 

Hope this helps!
