    This is my approach. I installed a grommet in the bottom of my Zone VI holster, and attache the lanyard to the meter holster. As Mike said, the meter will not reach (level) ground. You've still got to watch for rocks, logs,etc., or just don't drop it.

    If still looking for a holster, I have an orphaned leather one for the Sekonic 778, I'd be willing to part with. I checked it with my Pentax Digital Spot - it fits fine. PM me if interested (I'm in the LA area).

    I found a metal belt clip and attach it to my Minolta spotmeter via a standard 1/4" tripod thread screw into the tripod hole in the handle.

    Another option is to go in search of a case for cell phones which would fit your meter...belt clip on those, to attach the case.

    hi Lads !
    I had the same problem.
    Having seen a Zone VI hoster, I decided to buy some black leather and duplicate it.
    You need a sheet of paper for a mockup, a pair of strong scissors to cut the leather, a leather needle and some leather thread. Add a couple of hours and you've something fantastic holding at your side... Beware where you wear it. It is so nice they may think you've hostile intents...

    I second (or is it fourth...) the lanyard method for outdoor/on-the-trail work. It has saved my light meter numerous times. I use an old Zone VI viewing filter lanyard, but a shoelace, etc. would work just as well. The meter lives in a vest pocket when not in use, the lanyard is hooked to a d-ring high on the vest so I can take the whole thing off as a unit when finished shooting. The higher tether keeps the meter from hitting the ground even if I'm bending over.

    For city work, however, the meter lives without lanyard in my backpack, and gets taken out only when needed for metering; I have to be more careful, but I've not yet figured out a way to keep the meter in the backpack, keep a lanyard around my neck, bike around the city and take the pack on and off...

    Best,

    I made a loop of cord long enough to span the distance between my beltloop and my eye. I use a Carabiner to link the cord to my belt loop. It still won't hit the ground and I can put the meter in my jeans or coat pocket depending on the season.
