    Aug 21, 2005, 8:47 PM - wich one is the best way to close a gauntlet? #1

    Hello, i am wondering, wich one is the best way to close the gauntlets?
    I know most people use velcro, but i dont like it because with the time, it becomes exhausted.
    Any solution?

    thanks!

    My gauntlets don't close. I haev foam inside and I have to slide them on. I'm not so sure that this is the best solution though. Goodluck!

    Thanks for the answer anakin!

    cal196... Iīll try to expalin it...
    For example, ive got a Nokia case for my movile phone whic closes with velcro. The case doesnīt close yet. Te velcro has been to used as to be closed and now I cannot close it.
    Thatīs what I mean.
    I fear that with the time, ill canīt close the gauntlets

    OH well dont worry, the super duper velcro from wal-mart will never wear. It is rough though its not generic grade velcro. I have some of it on my towel door in the bathroom and it hasnt worn out in 2 years of almost everyday use.

    Another way to keep your Gauntlets tight is to do what they did for the Movie, use a pin closure system. An easy way to make one is with some strip-hinge, like the one seen joining Jango's Gauntlet-halves. Place the hinge inside the closed Gauntlet & glue the hinges one to each Gauntlet side. Remove the hinge's center rod & replace it with a threaded rod. Place a nut for the threaded rod at the wrist end of your closure system. I could go on, but you probably get the idea.
    Cheers Jono!

    Man, thats a interesting idea. Never thought about that. Now iīve already atached velcro to my gauntlets, but someone could try that
