I thought of pigeon tube, tied on the legs of carrier pigeons, but that's two words.
Off to think again. Hmm

Nope, my brain is steaming with the effort, Feather. Shocked  giveup  cheesy

Perhaps somebody else will find it (Kitkat?), but what happens if nobody does?
Is there a time limit before you're declared winner, having stumped everyone?

Yes, Whiskers!  Chaperon is correct.  toast  
I thought that one would have run for a long time - mainly because chaperon is more commonly spelt with an 'e' on the end, but it's one of those words that is accepted with or without.  (Little bit of a trick question there - I thought - so Whiskers, you did well to get that, and so quickly too! surprised )
