Hi everyone. It has come timeto do something about my gauntlets. As some of you may have experienced putting gauntlets on by yourself is an almost impossible task if you use a piano hinge and pin method. Well it is for me anyway. I am going to try a new method. I tried side release buckles at one point but that was more difficult to take off. My plan is to use rare earth magnets so I can put them on myself.
I know this has been done before, but I wanted to see what everyone thought. Maybe those that have done it could post up some opinions. I am planning on getting these.

They have a 9 pound pull force. I am going to put 3 sets on each gautlet. I wondered if that was enough strength to keep them closed? The last thing I want to have happen is a guantlet fall off and break. Does anyone know of stonger magnets? They have to be magnetized like these so they take up less room in the gauntlet.
