Making postage tubes easier to carry

Postage tubes are cardboard tubes posters and similar items are normally sent in. They are bit of a pain to carry normally since they are long enough you can't just stick them in your bag. Now on a scooter it is even more of an annoyance.

So I devised a method to carry such tubes easily on my back, using some stationary and shoulder bag strap. A picture of the this tube carrying device is shown below, and it should be obvious how to construct it.

It is attached to the tube thusly:

When both ends are attached, you can just sling it over your shoulder! :-)
