Maybe someone out there in the "Audient Void" knows the answer...

....To a minor dilemma I have. It's a little thing, but is starting to really bug me...

In my work as a cabinetmaker I frequently use a timer. For instance, I'll glue and clamp a piece, and then use a timer to make sure it stays clamped just long enough before the next step.

But I have been unable to find the sort of timer I really want. It needs to clip to my belt, be small, be simple to use, and be sturdy enough to take some knocks.

I've tried the two shown below. The first one hangs from a string, but the plastic loop that the string goes through soon broke. The second one is great, but the belt clip soon failed. (And worse, the clip is attached to the sliding battery cover. So a slight bump slides the timer right off, leaving only the cover on my belt!)

I may try this one next...
