Depends on what method of IT you are using. I use the John LeClair method, so I wear one, and keep backups in my wallet on playing cards!

I keep it in the package at home, and wrapped around a dollar bill in my pocket.

You can use it around your belt. with wax in both ends, you can put it very extended, carefully around your belt. When you know you will use it, pull one end, put it where-you-know, and the other end, where-you-know.

I'm too lazy to learn to use "real" IT, so I keep mine in my super-micro ITR. Incidentally, I added a flap of lining material to my usual performance vest and mount the ITR behind it rather than the usual shirt-based locations. Works like a charm.

He he he - lots of threads on this subject

To ad to what Mark Martinez posted, if you are carrying set ups wrapped around a playing card (I use a hole punch to make semi-circles on opposite edges)
try wrapping it in wax paper too, keeps it from sticking

After you finish up your dental floss, take the floss box apart and wrap it around the core, put it back together and you can reel it out as you need. Use the lid to "lock" the thread, that way, the box can be one of your anchor points.

A friend of mine named Bill Bowen developed this floss box idea around 1988-89, and marketed a very small quantity of them under the name "Stealth T***** Dispenser". He also replaced the plastic core with a brass piece that spun more smoothly. His other main contribution was a supply of putty (like Blu-tak) in the lid (for those hollowed out lids, like Oral B). The end of the IT was worked into a small bit of the putty and secured where the floss-cutting blade had originally been. He was able to strip single strands up to about 60+ feet (remarkable). For the original IT, his device was the best I have ever used.

What about using an old beeper case shell with the working of the floss core. EVERYONE WEARS A BEEPER IN TODAY'S WORLD. No one would notice.

You can get some awesmoe idea from Ammar's Easy to Master Thread Miracles for hook-ups. How about taping one end to the plastic part on your shoe lace and the other in your mouth or hand....or maybe attached to your clothes somehow.
If it is to be, it is up to me.

I also keep prepped hook ups wrapped around a playing card. If you are using it there are many hook ups. If not using an ITR I usually use a button or my belt.

I stick one end into my ear (so the wax blends in with my ear wax Smile) and the other end on my shirt button (one of the bottom ones)

I am set up at all times. I set up before I leave home in the morning and have my IT anchored to my glasses with a tiny piece of bee's wax that I keep attatched to a button on my shirt. I keep extras around a torn playing card in my wallet.

Well I normally use the leclair hook up, and with this you can pretty much wear it wherever you go with out it getting in the way

I also carry a spare leclair animator in my pocket wraped around a card

but for the Fearson hook up I'm still yet to find a good way of keeping it on me.
