    Velcro is what they used for the screen used gauntlets. Seen here Boba Fett Costume - The Dented Helmet Gallery

    Has anyone ever tried magnets? I would think that a combination of Velcro straps on the inside to secure it to the forearm, and magnets to clamp the gauntlets shut would work pretty well!

    I have a set of MOW gaunts that have a piano hinge and magnets for closure. If you want I could post some pics tomorrow night.

    I'd go with Velcro for the ABS gauntlets. They're light enough that industrial strength Velcro would work perfect. And they should come with an overlap to allow for this.
