Use your hands!
The Protest Sign Backpack is a great way to leave your hands free for signing, hand signals and other hand gestures.

  • Take two mailing tubes with end caps. Tape in bottom cap.
  • Cut slots at bottom of tubes to slide a belt, rope etc. through to act as a waist support. Feed belt through tube holes.
  • Cut slots in top end caps for two yard sticks of other upright support (most protests ban metal). Put those in. Tape in place.
  • Tie shoulder strap of whatever improvised material to upright support and belt to create shoulder straps.
