Good idea!
What else works in a no-scratch non-snagging soft sided approach is a prussik. 8 to 12 inches of soft grippy 1/4 line works great, slides along the tube easily without a load yet sets tightly once you pull on loop to secure your gear.
Knowledge in general of various uses of the prussik knot can be a life saver whether it is fashioning an ascender to climb rope or simply belaying a tight come-along or which line while you re-set to get a better purchase. prussik-knot.jpg

Right troll!
Who knew your shoelaces can have so many uses and actually be a lifesaver if you ever have to climb a rope in an emergency.

P.S. - my shoelaces once made the difference between spending the night out in the desert in a downed helicopter awaiting rescue and flying the bird out for a cold beer and a warm bed. Never ever give up! ...but that is another story, catch me around a campfire sometime.

Never tried shoe laces fred but I did carry a couple of loops of 4 mil static cord along with one pitch of 6 mil. Now I use a jumar, heavier but faster and easier to jug with
