    Gauntlet Hoses

    What is everyone using for their hoses on their gauntlets? Also where are you getting them at? Lastly how are you attaching them to your jumpsuit? Any help would be appreciated.

    You use the hose that you buy at Home Depot that is used in a sink's hand-held sprayer.

    You can attach it inside your jumpsuit a few ways. Me personally, I sewed a small loop of elastic inside my sleeve. I attached a hook onto the end of my hoses that catches on that elastic. I never have a problem with it popping out.

    Hey BatNinja, that looks pretty permanent (especially if you glue the bolt) and I know you are all for making things removable for cleaning. How do you remove the hoses when you need to wash the suit?

    Use a nylock nut on the screw/bolt, and a spring/harness clip to hold it in the sleeve.

    The hoses are removed at the gauntlet end, and then you slide the hoses off the elastic.

    Cool, thanks. Just doing this on my son's Fett, so the timing on this thread is perfect. Just going through your great info on the braids too, though I am still confused on that one...
