Harder are those little "dress" hot shoe protectors. Too small to be safely pocketed and frequently needed to be "off" for a while if you are into things like external flash and Clearviewer devices.


The safest place for those is the wastebasket (dustbin, poubelle, etc.).

Good point David, many if not all dslr bodies do not have hot shoe covers at all.  This omission has not caused me any grief.  But the pedantic mores that allow me not to lose lens caps are too strong to allow me to even lose a hot shoe blanking plate .... grrrr.  However there is some sense to them where they are a combination device that also protects the electrical contacts provided for an accessory clip in evf.  Of course this type is impossible to replace with anything other than the oem version if ever lost.
