    Best way to secure the JP?

    I'm in the process of trying to figure out the best way to secure my jet pack to my harness. I've used TK 409's design for the harness and I'm wanting to know what everyone is using to attach the jp. Right now I'm using D-rings attached to the harness webbing and thredding the webbing through the vest and back armor slots. I'm trying to stay away from using hooks that will show on the outside of the back armor.
    I would love to hear some suggestions and photos would be great.
    Thanks!

    i use quick clips. i've got a 409 style harness with 1/2 of the clip, and the other 1/2 of the clip is on straps riveted to the pack.

    i riveted the belt to the pack as well, so that secures it around my waist.

    I used bent aluminum flat bar in the shape of a hook and fastened them to the jet pack. On my vest it has straps with square loops that the jet pack hooks sits into like the original.
