    You should have some holes in the vest near the holes in the back plate and run them through both.

    You need to:

    1. put on your armor vest and backplate as if you were actually fully suiting up. That means attaching the collar studs if you normally do or aligning the velcro or whatever you've chosen as the means to put the collar to the backplate.
    2. Assuming you already cut the slots in the backplate, have a friend, spouse, neighbor, etc. use a pencil or pen to mark the vest through the backplate slots -- creating a horizontal mark where the hooks should come through the vest
    3. Cut through the back of the vest along those marks to make openings for the hooks and straps
    4. (Optional) Sew buttonholes or otherwise finish the new strap holes in the back of the vest. I never bothered on any of my own....


    That's it. Now when you put the harness over your flightsuit, you have someone thread the hooks and straps through the holes in the back BEFORE you put on the backplate, and thread them through the backplate as you put it on.

    Voila!
