    Any tips on how to prevent the next pair I come by from falling of the flimsy chain they are on. Nice one not so lucky Art

    I gave the little clamp thing a squeeze with pliers. Mine are still on my G-1 after a few years.

    What MikeyB-17 said - nip the closure tight with a pair of long- nosed pliers.

    Nope. Not a games of chance guy. Last time inVegas my wife and I spend a total of about $5 on slot machines and that was it!
    Didn’t the Us have a crimped together plastic-type loop/lanyard for dog tags and such? I would think such a thing could be made to go along with or to entirely replace the chain.
    Just spit-ballin’,

    Those ball chains that come with the dice are definitely the weak link. If you get it snagged on something your dice are gone in a flash. Most hobby shops carry leather thongs small enough to fit into the dice holes, which are a lot stronger. What with the price some vendors are asking for lucky dice, we need to give them all the protection and support we can muster. Pilot's solution
    is attractive and strong. Top drawer Pilot.
