    nah, they are duct taped on there. still have to make straps, etc.

    padding will be in there as well.

    i was thinking a strap with a small buckle or elastic strapping. what do you reccomend to keep them from moving around?

    a "Y" system at the sides? or just a str8 strap across the back.

    Thomas does his using 1"black nylon wed belt with a clip. No velcro nothing. I actually have 1.5" tan elastic band around the back of my knee's, the Chicago screws that attach the strap to the knee's are also riveted to the pants and I have some velcro on the front of the knee too.

    Alrighty,here are the pix I promised on how I have my knee's hooked up to my pants...

    The knee:


    The external show of the bolt and strap:



    Internal of bolt:



    The velcro under the knee:


    After the knee's were complete and the holes drilled, I put them over where they would ride on the costume and used a marker to mark through the holes in the plates, onto the pants, where the holes for the bolts needed to go. Then I used scissors to cut a small hole for the bolt. I used a rubber washer on the inside of the bolts to prevent tearing on the fabric and to keep the bolt from possibly slipping through.

    Hope that helps!
