Kristina and I broke out the Dremel tool and engraved our rack a few years ago.

I use nail polish—blue and green are my colors. Don’t buy cheap nail polish, or it’ll wear quickly!

I use thin blue electrical tape on my biners—I put it there while I’m sitting around, waiting for summer to return.

I decorated my Grigri a long time ago.

I make two passes with Krylon pink spray paint. No matter how much wears off, one of the crevices in the gear will always have pink in it.

I mark my gear with colored tape. Be sure to stick the tape on places with the least amount of wear-and-tear.

I label my gear with Wite-Out on the biner. 

A piece of tape, a splash of nail polish, or some engraved initials can all keep your gear from ending up on your partner’s rack. Our readers shared photos of their gear marking methods.
