Might have been me....this is an older picture, since this, I have a tube on top of the bumper for my hose, so the pin goes on the side now.

Just buy a couple of replacement rubber covers that "lock-in" to each end of your bumper hose storage. They have a section in the center that when pushed in, expand the outer edges to hold the covers in place. I have not had a problem with losing the covers since using these ones. Available at your local RV parts and accessoried dept for about five or six bucks each.

I guess I'm cheap..

I just used adhesive backed velcro on the bumper, top and bottom. Then ran a strip of non backed velcro across the cap. Nothing to catch or fall off, and I got a ton of it for $6 at Wally world. I can't seem to find the pictures of it right now. Anyway, I just peel the top tab away and remove the cap. The strap hangs by the lower piece of velcro. I found that one piece across the cap, in front of the vent hole, holds it in place just fine.

Just drill a hole in the top and install a cotter pin- such as what's found under the grease cap that holds most front disc brake rotors on, available at most any auto parts store. As long as the hole is a little snug, the pin just drops in, and then it's gravity that holds it in place. Randy

I just drilled a small hole through the bumper and the cap. I take a small philips head screw and screw it through both. That system has held for some 20,000+ miles.

Simple fix, bought a couple of cotter pins at home depot, drilled a small hole, locks them in tight for cheap, simple to remove and secure again after use

I just drilled a small hole through the top of the bumper, cover, and bottom and use a long skinny bolt and a wingnut. It works great. I used the covers mentioned earlier that you push in, but those worked loose, too. BTW, I don't keep anything in my bumper and still lost them.
