How to i close this shit?

this is my first thread on /diy/, although I've been lurking for a long time and also my first arduino project ever.
I'm quite proud of the outcome and it works like a charm. It's a speedometer for my longboards, detachable with switching km and km/h per board, as well as some other cool features.
Anyway, in the pic in the next post you'll see how it's attached, I have screwed through the lid of the lunchbox and attached foam rubber above so it doesn't wobble. My problem is that the box itself sometimes detaches itself from the lid when I go 20km/h+ on bumpy ground.
As I sometimes need to change the 9V-block i'd like an open/close mechanism that is easy to detach by hand but not by bumpy boardwalks. Something like clamps.
Soon I'll be doing a 260km+ trip and I don't want this to fall off while rolling down a hill or something. Any ideas?

Hey /diy/, I want to be able to buy things online while having complete privacy.
I know of having the package(s) sent to an abondoned house or having them sent to a hotel and just going to the counter and retrieving them. I've never tried doing these things myself, but they seem easy enough;stuff that needs signing might be a little difficult though.
My problem is actually purchasing something online and not leaving a paper trail. Everything I want is on legal sites, everything is legal. I just want privacy. I thought about using prepaid debit cards, but from what I've read, you need to give up your personal information.
Do any of you know about doing stuff like this? I'm just going to go on normal sites and they don't accept bitcoins.
How can I spruce up my sword?

I've got a project here, and it has me stumped.
I have this sword here, pic related, and it's a nice sword, you know, whatever.
But I'd like to give it some bells and whistles, you know? Give it some edge. Something special. I'd like to do it entirely by myself.
I'm open for any suggestions you give me, try to make them cosmetic only though.
One of the ideas I had myself was giving it a neon glow. I know that sounds hard as fuck to do, and it is. I have no idea how to do this. Do you have any ideas on some methods of how I could give it a light blue glow? It's okay if it's glow in the dark only, that's fine. Paint, lights, whole 9 yards, if it can accomplish this goal then don't be afraid to suggest it.
The blade is made out of metal.
In case anyone's wondering, I got it for like 20 bucks. I'll drop a link later if anyone cares.
Thank you for your time.
