Fastening Connectors Onto Jetpack
« on: Jul 02, 2015, 11:33 AM »
I have an NME Props Arena Pack and want to fasten a loop of nylon strap that holds a small metal loop. This metal loop will be the connection point for the harness. Since I don't have access to the inside of the pack, I plan to use pop rivets to secure the nylon to the pack.

Has anyone used this method before? Any issues with the fiberglass cracking or anything to that effect?

Why don't you just cut out the access panel so you can get into the inside of the pack?

Ill echo what ref said, jsut cut the panel out int he middle and do some alumium flatstock as supports riveted in(with backing washers) across the width of the pack and then put your ahrness riveted onto the aluminum bars. You can pick some up at home depot for like $15 per length, youll probably only need a couple feet of it.
