How do you keep TV bumper end caps on

Looking for a way to keep those TV rear bumper end caps on when traveling. I want to put my sewer hose in the bumper but the caps just don't stay on .

I was confused at first, wondering what kind a TV has bumper caps. In this case TV = TT. What a lot of people do drill a hole through the cap that correlates to the two slots in the metal bumper. Then take an old wire coat hanger, (the cheap type that your dry cleaning comes on). Cut a piece of it a little longer that the bumper height and bend one end with a 90 elbow (it will look a bit like the number 7). When done slip it into the top hole, and then down through the bottom hole. Presto you have a cheap easy method to lock the bumper caps on.

I saw a guy use long shank pad locks that went throught the top and bottom hole in the TT bumper. Must have lived in a bad area

[ATTACH][/ATTACH] This is what I did. Drilled 2 small holes top and bottom. Used stainless steel springs painted black. Easy on and off.

My mistake men I meant TT not TV. Sorry
All these suggestions are great. I may just use the camper world end caps.

I have done this for years. Drill a hole in the top and bottom and spread a cotter pin just a little and put in it. Easy to put in and take out. This is just my 2 cent and has worked for me.

I put a couple of thumb screws into each cap to keep them on. Drilled and tapped the bumper itself.
