OK....
If you look at the ribbon on any fish extender... that is what you place over the fish... that is how the "extender" hangs on the fish...
it is very easy to just remove the extender by just un hooking it from the fish.
Sooo...
you take your zip tie and cinch it around both of the ribbons that are hanging from the fish on both sides... and you cinch the zip tie so that the two ribbons squeeze around the fish making it impossible to remove the extender. I may not be using the right words to explain it

Hi Erika-

I haven't tried yet. I imagine the regular ones will do. My DH has a whole container he got from Home Depot. I didn't use one for the 3 nighter we just took. I forgot. I heard of someone from the Disboards that she caught some kids trying to take hers from the same cruise we were on. Where are cabin was, there was not much traffic at all.

Thanks so much! I am such a visual person that the picture really helped.

How funny! We actually have the same fish extender...only in yellow. My mom got one for each of my kids years ago. Fortunately we were able to locate one of them when I started getting everything together for the cruise. She must have known...

Tiffany-

Just noticed your sig. Are you doing the double dip November 14, 2009? We are going to be on that cruise.

BTW-the FE looks wonderful. Thanks again. I posted a photo a few posts back.

disneyfreak1 ... Can't someone still just cut the ribbon and take it ?

Yes, I suppose someone could do that... but that would involve planning, like carrying scissors or some sort of cutting device. I believe that the FE's that end up missing are the result of unsupervised kids running around terrorizing the doors and grabbing them as they run by... not particularily cruisers out to take a FE.
...at least I hope that is the problem... anyway, the zip tie is a deterrant.

It's simply a deterrent like a locked door or window. A lock helps keep an honest person honest.

I agree with Sandy that it's most likely a see it, grab it, run type thing. They aren't putting that much thought into it to carry scissors etc.
