An old southern idiom. Could be used to identify a place that is empty, a person who is wound up, or any number of situations where the word "tight" is used. Nobody seems to know who Dick was. Apparently he had a tough time keeping his hat on his head.
I went and checked that place you told me about. They've closed up tighter than dick's hatband. Have been for years.

A lot of people don't seem to know what dicks hatband is. It actually refers to a male penis, the hat being a condom and the the band ofcourse being the rubber band at the base of the condom.
Bro, she not gonna let you hit. She keeps that shit tighter than dick's hatband.
