I just went to Joe Ann fabrics and picked up a roll of industrial strength Velcro and Voila I have already worn mine out in the sun with no running

Snaps are actually pretty simple; all you need is some epoxy to attach it to the armor. The rest of what you need to do should be on the back of the package of snaps.

My advice? Go with both snaps and velcro. It pays to have double the strength.

With the snaps I bought, they give you instructions on attaching one side to the fabric. So yes, they'll definately work :)

Buy these snaps, available at Micheal's in the the leather section.

Use a piece of plastic, I used ABS, drill a hole in it, and attach the male snap.

I then glue it to the armour, I used the ABS glue that came with my TK suit.

I then cut a small hole in my vest and attach the female snap.

Behold!! Armour holds. Be sure to let the glue dry for at least a day before you attach anything.
