Tightenable Plaster

Pull the cord for instant tightness
  [vote for,

A plaster (band-aid for you americans out there) only for finger wrappage, with a thin cord running through the middle (or maybe one through each side) that can be tightened so that your plaster will not constantly need to be undone/redone tighter every time it comes a bit loose. And that's my idea. Roll on the fishbones!

No seriously, give me a croissant.

       Yeah, i think this is an excellent idea. Well done, stranger.

       give you a + for that piece of silliness even though I loathe plasters and all I keep thinking about are tourniquets.

       Put a piece of shrink tubing over the offending plaster. Then hold finger over a candle until the tubing shrinks. Band aid will never loosen again. (Keep glass with icewater at hand.)

       Around here, we use drywall.

       No, not *maybe* one through each side, *definitely*! Through the middle is bad.   

       Never heard "plaster" before though. Nooo, I've been ignorantly using an americanism all these years!

       band-aids for scrapes an' such, duct tape for open cuts.

       So if the injury starts jetting blood, just yank on the cord and you’ve got an instant tourniquet.

       Plaster is an Irishism, [Robobust], so if you aren't Irish, maybe you are using the acceptable term.

       Oh! That's a relief.

       And earlier "...from Old English, medical dressing, and from Old French plastre, cementing material...", therefore the name plaster of Paris.
