Something similar to this has probably been posted before, but I just wanted to share. A friend of mine had a similar clamp to hold his A-Rig when not in use. I found these at Home Depot. They come in a small container with 3 clamps and were only like $1.87 for the 3 clamps. They work perfect!

The ring from a large gatorade bottle works well.

Zip tie. Leave the loop large enough that it will slip over the head of the A-Rig.

Go to ebay and search for "Custom offshore tackle fishing rod wrap". The best thing i've found for A-rigs. It's velcro and neoprene.

I like the Nite Ize gear ties best. They have many other uses also. They are a rubber coated twist tie. I use the 3inch one to wrap around the wires of the A-rig and then I wrap the whole thing to the rod with the 6inch one. They make them in many different lengths. I use some of the longer ones to secure electrical extension cords together.

I got mine from Home depot and then I ordered some online directly from Nite Ize because they have many other colors Home Depot did not have.

I use the clear plastic case from my shame. Its big enough to hold the hooks with baits and everything on it and it don't get hung up on anything.
