In place of rubber bands and the like go to a camping supply store and get some of the small bungee, you can buy it by the foot. Way more durable than a simple band. You can cut custom lengths, square knot or zip tie a "band", or make a "permanent" installation on your tipup.

I fish mostly for pike so when i pick up my uncoated steel leader winds right up on the spool (it comes of perfectly straight when you unspool) and the hook catches on the line guide. It folds up and the bungee goes across the spool and I'm done. Here's what it looks like:



It works for me..........

  I use Velcro brand one wrap. I buy it at Lowes in 12' lengths cut to size and place a grommet on one end. These have worked great for me.

Old thread but why start a new one.  In a moment of clarity I dropped a small counter sunk rare earth magnet over the nut holding the spool on.  Just get the hook close to it..........

I super glued a plastic treble hook cover to the top of my tip up and it works well
