    what are your gauntlets made out of, I used sintra for mine and I put the hinge on the inside and riveted it together. I then used bondo to hid the rivets.

    Cyanoacrylate Glue

    Super Glue, Krazy Glue, there are many kinds. If you check the labels of various glues at Home Depot, Lowes, etc., you'll see it on the package.
