    Hi Fett X,
    Depends what your gauntlets are made from. My set is vac' formed styrene, and to secure the 'outside' seams, I used super glue reinforced with 2 small screws/nuts (for each gaunt). For the 'inside' seams, I used the industrial strength velcro. As long as the surface is clean, and you let it set-up per the instructions, the velcro works really well.

    Uh oh. I just slapped my velcro on, and went to town. I hope my gaunt don't fly off while i'm striking a pose.

    Industrial strength velcro. It's strong and movie accurate.

    Yup, superglue too! But don't use it to attach your visor.
