What i mean by this is, instead of using just regular ol' retractors or clips, what other ways are you guys clipping your lights, cameras, consoles, slates and things like that. I've seen the thread were one person used ropes and regular bolt snaps, but i was looking for some other ideas. I thought about using bolt-snaps and surgical tubing, and using it somewhat like a retractor because the tubing is stretchy. So let's see what you got.

Snaps zip-tied to equipment,camera, accessories, and hoses. No retractors. No suicide clips.

I always carry my secondary light zip-tied/clipped to left shoulder D-ring.The light is then held to harness (Hog) with surgical tubing. For the primary light, when carried, I use one of these hanging from the right shoulder D-ring. SPG clipped to left hip D-ring. Slate clipped to right shoulder and tucked under harness. SMB and finger spool clipped to ass D-ring on crotch strap.

I have used these clips on my video rig. They work a bit better when wearing gloves. I will probably use these on my pony's when I get around to buying more.

Bicycle tube and the clips that crpntr133 posted. I love those and you can get them at most hardware stores.
The bike tube you might talk to a bike shop about. I ended up get one for free since it already had a hole in it. If the shop is hesitant just throw in that they can even cut it in half. Believe me a little goes a long way. The ones that I like best are the ones that are used for the fat tired little kids bikes...but any would do.

Stainless Steel bolt snaps connected via cave line, double enders, 3/16" bungee/shock cord, and rubber bands from mountain bike tire inner tubes. Coil lanyard for my camera... one end is a bolt snap, the other a stainless steel split ring.

I think salt water would make a zip tie rigid after a while and a little easier to break. Maybe that's just me, though.
