    Magnets, piano hinges or velcro are the most popular methods.

    yes piano hinges rock. you can make them whole as well.

    as long as you make the ends big enough to slide your hands WITH gloves on through them. this is what I do, as well as Shado.

    You can use magnets for the closure side or velcro... or a very solid method is the Jango screen version, which has a piano hinge on the inside of the gaunt with a removable "pin" that slides out and opens the gaunt.
