Thanks for all the great suggestions. I am glad to see that there are some different styles of fish extenders out there, because I am thinking of making a non-traditional one.

So I am attempting to make one out of a hanging shoe organizer. So far its looking pretty good. I was wondering if the extender requires a cord-like "hanger" or would a hook hanger work. the organizer I purchased has a hook hanger. I am sure I could fashion something w/ cord or ribbon but if the hook would work...(we leave on Friday & sail on Sat so I am trying to finish all my projects/lists-remind me not to panic)

A cord or ribbon would work better I think. If it is one hook, then it just may work

I agree, if you go back and look at the fish on the wall with the other extenders. I am not sure a hook will work too well. Just take some cord with you in case.

Have a SUPER time and take a photo to post here!!

A regular hook will NOT work. The back of the fish is too large. Also, there have been problems with Fish Extenders "swimming" away. The theory is that bored teenagers might be taking them. I am NOT accusing anyone but that was what was suggested to me.
I used one of those zip tie things that you use to bundle wires. It worked great and you couldn't even see it. At the end of the cruise I just snipped it and removed the fish extender.

Stupid question: Where do you get zip ties? I know you can buy them online, but who really needs 500 of them? Can you get them at Home Depot or somewhere like that?

You can get zip ties anywhere, we bought them at Target in the hardware area.

I have a sewing/embroidery machine and I have these Disney designs. I don't have the Disney machine. I think the Disney one comes with some designs I can't get.

Zip Ties

I was at Dollar Tree today, and they had a small package of a variety of sizes....for a dollar of course.

DH picked up a large container of zip ties at Home Depot a couple of years ago (he used them for a lot of things). They were colored and had a large section of lime green ones. We used them for a couple of years to close our luggage until they developed the TSA locks. We also used them to secure our fish extenders on a couple of cruises.

On our last cruise, krdisneybound provided zip ties for everyone. You might want to think about making this your little "gift". It was a great idea.
