    How exactly would I go about attaching the snaps to the back of the actual armor? Just straight out gluing it doesnt sound as if it would last.

    I tried E-6000 industrial adhesive per TD-1536's online advise. It's still holding strong
    after a year. Just glued the snap right to the armor. The other side is sewn to the vest.

    Heres the site if you can't find it in a store......
    www.E-6000.com

    The plastic, fiberglass or whatever your armor is will break before this stuff lets go.

    yep, E-6000 works great for plastic. if your armor is metal, good old JB Weld is the best.

    I used JB Quick on my chest and knee armor (to hold on the strap). It works great and I have never had a problem.

    What if your armor has a rubber backing?

    E-6000 works on rubber, according to their website.
