    Hot glue for me.

    The battery I keep on an extended cable and can just hold it in one of my chest pockets on the flightsuit.

    Duct tape for me to. You have to re-adjust it periodically, but its pretty easy. Plus, its easy to get them out if you wanna switch something or repaint etc, etc I usually cut a small piece of carboard the same size as the lights to go between the lights & the tape so i don't get gooey adhesive all over the circut board.

    I also taped the Fettronics box to the inside of my vest around towards my back, so that it would be under the backplate and not be in a place where its bulk would show. Make sure you can still reach it to turn it on.
