    Apr 6, 2013, 6:00 PM - Ear Cap Attachment Method #1

    Hey guys,

    I'm wondering about successful attachment methods for the ear cap over the rangefinder. I would like it to be removable, yet secure. I tried a number of different searches, but all came back fruitless.

    My helmet and cap have small posts and holes that kind of lock it into place, but I wouldn't trust it to remain solid during use. Any recommendations?

    I use small rare earth magnets set into the lid and cap. Strong enough to hold the cap on, but still removable when required.

    Well, sounds like magnets are the way to go. Thanks for the recommendation!

    I bought a bunch of rare earth magnets for my armor attachment, so I'll just reallocate some for this purpose as well.

    Can someone post pics of how to attach the magnets to the ear piece and the helmet? Thanks in advance.
