    Yup. You can cut the hinge longer than you need, then cut the stop off of the end and bend the other end so you have a way to pull it out and put it back in.

    I used elastic on my cardboard gauntlets, and it works great. Slips on and off like a glove. Cheap too!

    If you want to go accurate to the screen used gauntlets you'll wanna do the clamshell method with velcro, (ie butt the 2 halves together on the outside & epoxy together, & use velcro on the insides)
