u/maero5e · 35 pointsr/Embroidery

I got the entire organizer for $12 on amazon. They're called 'floss bobbins' i think and can be purchased by themselves if you want!

u/Randomperson1362 · 20 pointsr/malefashionadvice

How much are you off by? if its a small amount, you could sew the button back on, and put on a button extender, similar to this.

If you need to add one inch, this would work, and the belt would cover it up. If you are off by 2 or more inches, I don't think think this would be a good plan.

u/GrizzleFirebear · 14 pointsr/magicTCG

I think this is the one I have, but you can just search record button. Little more expensive then I remember.

u/raelDonaldTrump · 12 pointsr/microgrowery

If anyone is looking for a more permanent alternative to tearing holes in your fabric pots, installing eyelets is very easy and makes a more secure hole that won't tear or fall apart.

Get a soft measure tape. Your local craft place should have plenty of them.

Or, use a string to map out your path, then measure the string :)

u/polarbearunderwhere · 8 pointsr/bigdickproblems

You can use a piece of string and a ruler. You can even print a ruler off assuming you have a printer.

That said tailors tape is relatively inexpensive and can come in handy for taking measurements.

u/Hadokin · 8 pointsr/airsoft

Disclaimer: I have used this method to keep combat boots tied and tight for the last 12 years of a military career, this is a tip for anyone that wants to make their life significantly easier during airsoft while running around in combat boots.

Step 1: Grab a set of Cord locks from anywhere (ebay, amazon, random gear)

I like using these:

Step 2: Take the laces and feed them through the clip and tie a knot on the end of each lace

Step 3: Put foot in boot, tighten cord locks down to comfortable point of boots

Step 4: Wrap the laces around the back of the boot and around the cord lock

Step 5: Make the laces taut and tuck the ends or what’s left over into the boots

Step 6: Enjoy a day of running around without worrying about your boots coming undone

Side note: Sometimes the laces will get a little slack in them but your boots will remain tight on your feet, when they get slack, just make them taut again and tuck back into boot

Edit: damn auto correct!

u/HillaryEdits · 8 pointsr/TheOrville

Haha I would, but I don't want Fox to sue me. This doorbell only took about 10 minutes to make. I bought this [button] ( from amazon, and made the Planetary Union symbol using a silhouette cameo. I cut the design on vinyl and stuck it on. The button can record any sound so I just recorded the door chime in a quiet room.

This was a birthday present I made for Tom, it's been a big hit!

u/ForSureLying · 6 pointsr/Velo

I've used an 'Iron Mend' kit before on my kit.

This has worked well, and 2 years later, same jacket is still going strong.

u/lacoursieres · 6 pointsr/battlestations

Hey thanks a lot!

It's holding up using the strongest velcro tape I could find at my local hardware store.
It's strong enough as it doesn't move at all even my I plug or unplug XLR cables from it.

I think that's exactly what I used:

u/AllOutOTF · 6 pointsr/orangetheory

I wear the pace rival crops and I love them, mine don’t slip but I did buy a size down. In the past before I sized down, I used those plastic spring cord lock things on the drawstring instead of tying it in a knot. I get the flat ones and they don’t bother me at all during the workout. You can find them on amazon or probably in a craft store.

ETA: link for what I’m talking about

u/FluffyFoxSprinkles · 6 pointsr/quilting

I use these and I love them. I've never had a problem. I use wet a washcloth and wipe it off when I'm done. Don't get the pink ones, the disappear too fast.

u/bitchnstitch · 6 pointsr/CrossStitch

What about something like this or something like this that’s easily just snapped closed and put away? That’s how I keep my floss away from dogs who consider everything “theirs” 😂. I also keep my WIP in something like this so I’m able to keep it out of dust and pet hair while still being both portable and easily storable.

u/benungs · 5 pointsr/typewriters

I don't think you're going to find one with a hook. However, you can get some grommet pliers (get the right size!) to go with grommets with hooks that, maybe, you can find somewhere (2 minutes of looking and I haven't found any, and now I surrender the search to you).....

u/Digipatd · 5 pointsr/army

Yes, REI does as well. The common name for them is cord locks.

Plastic Cord Locks End Spring Stop Toggle Stoppers Multi-colour (10PCS, Black)

u/CHARtheGNAR · 5 pointsr/Throwers

Found them on amazon.

Embroidery Floss Organizer Box - 17 Compartments with 100 Hard Plastic Floss Bobbins and 640 Floss Number Stickers. (Full Set)

u/SackityPack · 5 pointsr/buildapcsales

I wouldn't get these. Grab a continuous roll of double sided velcro instead. Cut it to the exact length you need and there's no excess to wrap up. Also more durable.

You might be able to find it cheaper in a store.

u/DubNscoo · 5 pointsr/WildernessBackpacking

The inner layer is more of a challenge, It’s from this pattern-

I’m sure you could find a video on channels for drawstring, I just shook the down and made a folded edge then sewed it up.

The snaps, I bought a starter kit on amazon, size 20 kamsnaps, really easy installation-

Extra length was from another throw I had, used the rest of the throw for a blanket for my pup.

It’s a fun project and a great piece of gear, I’m still learning as I go when it comes to sewing.
I say jump in and go for it.

u/MrGingerLeprechaun · 5 pointsr/EDC

The patch is iron-on so I attached some of this Velcro with its adhesive and it has worked great.

u/ChefJoe98136 · 4 pointsr/Seattle

How adjustable depends on how much material was built into the thing, but your deadline of same or next day is pretty tight, especially since a tailor might still leave it in a state where it needs pressed afterwards.

You sure you can't just buy some off-the-rack pants at the men's warehouse or get a button extender if it's just 5 lbs ?

u/Westley_Never_Dies · 4 pointsr/quilting

I use Leonis pens and have never had a problem with permanent stains. They're really short but seem to hold a lot of ink. They're also much cheaper than other brands.

u/chelseabiscuit · 4 pointsr/CrossStitch

These boxes from Amazon come with 100 plastic bobbins and a set of DMC stickers.

I used to have have half my floss stored in a sewing box sorted by color family until that became to full more to house any more, and the other half was collected in a big black hole of plastic grocery bag. I can’t express enough how good this organization feels!

u/jenn4u · 3 pointsr/asktransgender

If you are flat they kind of serve no purpose they only make whats there appear bigger. I think you would be better suited looking up padded bras under the shirt they can give the impression of breasts.

I bought a cloth tape measure for measuring underbust and overbust and bought the corresponding bras from amazon. Though its a bit different with a wide chest like mine the cup size has to be dramatically reduced, so if you have a wide chest make sure to check out size guides for trans woman.

u/cualcrees · 3 pointsr/PSVR

I’m using Velcro, that way, I can adjust or remove the camera whenever I need to.

u/Borsaid · 3 pointsr/Ubiquiti

Unless you're going to be doing a lot of them, I'm going to just recommend something like these

u/Silliwench · 3 pointsr/RATS

I make my own. Before we had a sewing machine I used a snap tool I picked up (
to snap piece of fabric together because I didn't have the patience to hand sew them. It was actually pretty effective and cheap all things considered.

Now I sew them. I have experimented with a number of different types and styles but my girls like honeycomb hammocks the best.

u/robododo · 3 pointsr/WaltDisneyWorld

Yeah, you gotta get the locking pin backs.

Something like this: Lapel Pin - Locking Pin Backs (Pin Keepers)

u/vulchiegoodness · 3 pointsr/konmari

>since I'm short all of them were too long.

it doesnt take much to hem them. you can even get iron-fused tape and just go at it with an iron. its not a permanent fix, but at least you can wear it and decide if you want to properly get it hemmed, or donate it.

>more suited for a girl in her early 20s instead of her late 20s.

Do you like it? then its suited for you. imho. .

u/HYVR · 3 pointsr/OculusQuest

I would say it's as close to the vive w/ DAS as the quest could be comfort-wise, an immense improvement overall. The face cushion of the vive is more plush but that's the only difference IMO.

Links are in the description, but here they are as well:

u/LambeosaurusBFG · 3 pointsr/MTB

I used double sided Velcro “tape” a few weeks ago. Wrapped it twice around my leg at different heights and it worked perfectly. Can get a roll of it for $6-$7 and it has a ton of other nice uses.

VELCRO Brand - ONE-WRAP Roll, Double-Sided, Self Gripping Multi-Purpose Hook and Loop Tape, Reusable, 12' x 3/4" Roll - Black

u/appleandcheddar · 3 pointsr/gifs

It's $5 on Amazon

u/secret_sciences · 3 pointsr/AJelqForYou

I use a couple of these for tightening the string, I don't have to mess with the rods.

u/dexa_scantron · 3 pointsr/xxfitness

These are the best for threading: Easy Threader Flexible Needle Drawstring replacement and craft tool

And you can buy cord anywhere, for example: Wrights Drawstring Cord, 1/4-Inch, Black

u/Ishouldbeasleepnow · 3 pointsr/myog

24" Wide VELCRO Brand Black Woven Wide Loop 3001 | Loop Side Only, Hook Side Sold Separately

Search for Velcro wall

u/NepEnut · 3 pointsr/CrossStitch

I'd recommend putting them on some plastic thread bobbins. You can get a bunch on Amazon for like $5 or $6 bucks. You can write the thread number in sharpie on the bobbin if you need to keep track.

The other thing would be to get a thread organizer. I've got two of these and they're pretty great. It comes with the thread bobbins and stickers w/ DMC numbers on them as well.

u/Adrynal · 3 pointsr/WaltDisneyWorld

The cast members who will trade to you will (should) have a special tag at the end of their lanyard that says something to the effect of "Hey, I'll trade pins with you!"

Maybe someone has a picture of what I'm talking about?

Re: putting your pins on a backpack, I really like this idea! :D You can purchase lockable backs for your pins at any of the shops at WDW. I'm also relatively certain you can find them cheaper online.

Something like this although I can't guarantee -these- will work with Disney pins, the ones in the Disney shops definitely will.

If you use these locking backs, then you don't have to worry about them falling off of your backpack!

u/frostbytetek · 2 pointsr/streetwear

Don't know if there's an easy free option but there's this: Easy Threader

u/TornFromTheWomb · 2 pointsr/fixit

This is what I was talking about:

I feel like enough of those, along with some good paracord and a properly anchored hook, would do the job.

u/ohlopsm · 2 pointsr/chastity

Looks like some of THIS cut to length + some of THIS = What the guy in your picture is wearing.

u/996149 · 2 pointsr/freediving

Depending on the size of the splits, you could use a product like Iron Mend, but it's only meant for small rips and holes.

If it's a long tear or a lot of tears you might be able to get someone to repair it, just google for custom wetsuit makers in your area and give them a call. But it might be that the cost of repair is more than a new suit.

u/Zgoldenlion · 2 pointsr/OculusQuest

The felt does both. The glass spacer doesn’t have the curve that follows the edge of the headset so the felt blocks light and gets the proper angle so the pad is actually resting on something. Everything is fastened by the adhesive of the felt or Velcro but I did use string to tighten a few places.

I use VELCRO Brand Industrial Strength Fasteners | Stick-On Adhesive | Professional Grade Heavy Duty Strength Holds up to 10 lbs on Smooth Surfaces | Indoor Outdoor Use | 4 x 2 inch Strips, 4 Sets, Black

This is the same Velcro I used to attach DAS it’s easy to cut to shape and applies very firmly.

u/Magjua · 2 pointsr/rawdenim

I would say they are worth it, lost my Taylor Swift pin with a normal back. You can also get some with a screw.

u/WindWalkerWhoosh · 2 pointsr/SomebodyMakeThis

Since you're amazingly lazy, here:

u/chicken_herder · 2 pointsr/woodworking

I thing the best use case for these things would be in camping, sure as hell wouldn't be tying down anything to a car.

Although then again, these exist:

u/RedDelibird · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Hershey Park

The cheapest hotel nearby.

This is going to definitely be needed if I'm going to Hershey.

Hmmm... hmm... hmm.... /u/Cheesey_Cakes because they really need to get out more. :P

u/Graphikuh · 2 pointsr/WaltDisneyWorld

You can get them at the parks, or if you want to get some beforehand they have them on Amazon. Here are some:

They also sell the official Disney ones on Amazon, although they are more expensive.

u/pork-belly · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

-cable tray(s) $22 - perfect for screwing into a think desk like yours, power strips can live in here as well

-nylon/velcro ties $7 - possibly cheaper at your local hardware store

With kush white walls like that a lil cable management might improve how you feel walking in every day!

Nice setup. Foot warmer could use some RGB tho

u/sekazi · 2 pointsr/OculusQuest

This is my list.
4x2" Industrial Velcro
Tri-Glide Slide
1.5" Wide One Wrap Velcro

Other people use a D-Ring instead but I prefer the look of the tri-glide slide instead. You need to make sure to use Industrial Velcro for the attachment of the DAS.

Here is what mine looks like

u/deekster_caddy · 2 pointsr/Dashcam

Try some 3M dual lock pads like they use on the back of the EZpass transponders and such. I use these on my cam and it's very easy to take off and put back up.

u/cooldude_4000 · 2 pointsr/malefashionadvice
u/manwatchingfire · 2 pointsr/whatisthisthing

After googling your keywords this looks different but similar.
So a smaller version for smaller gromets?
When you squeeze the handle only the little bump touches the other side. Like it would make a dent in a piece of paper

u/deviationer · 2 pointsr/vive_vr
u/blueunitzero · 2 pointsr/SonicTempleFestival

> 5). Don't wear anything with spikes.

im making a denim vest with the little square pyramid studs on it for the show right now lol

>10). They say keep your wristband on for the duration of the festival, but honestly if you leave it a little loose you can manage to get it on and off at the beginning and end of the day.


u/SoriAryl · 2 pointsr/AirForce

These might help:

I've used them to secure my Nephew's Disney Pins while at Disneyland

u/Potato466 · 2 pointsr/WindowsMR

I would use double sided tape of some sort to make-shift put it back on, or a better option would be to purchase adhesive Velcro straps like these:

u/xterraadam · 2 pointsr/Jeep

24" Wide VELCRO Brand Black Woven Wide Loop 3001 | Loop Side Only, Hook Side Sold Separately

u/DillonPanthers33 · 2 pointsr/Ultralight

Highly recommend picking up one of these:

Buying clothes online based on height/weight is a struggle not worth fighting. Using your real measurements and manufacturer's sizing charts is a much better way to go (you're still at the mercy of their accuracy, though).

u/MidwestJackalope · 2 pointsr/homestead

Only real difference between regular sewing and leather/fur sewing us you'll want to use glover needles and a sailors palm, speedy stitcher, or leather thumb cover with a coin in it. These mittens are some of the easiest patterns to trace two identical halves and sew inside out. Best used with glove liners.

u/jesuspants · 2 pointsr/audioengineering

They make easy buttons that you can custom load audio.

u/yourock_rock · 2 pointsr/HomeImprovement

You can get hemming tape that doesn't require sewing - you just place it between the fabric and iron it, which melts the adhesive. Like this It's really nice if you don't/can't sew and just need to make a straight edge

u/PM_ME_AZNBOOBIES · 2 pointsr/Workspaces

USB docking station may help or any type of docking station

Little things can help like :

-cable length (use length you need not anything longer; especially for the permanent fixtures that won't require alot of moving)

-bundle the wires up. I'll provide some examples



u/Cock-Bandit · 2 pointsr/BadDragon

I found some really soft double sided Velcro from the craft store and it works really well with the sport sheet harness and my medium Nova as well as Peirce.

Edit: I believe it's this Velcro

u/massimomorselli · 2 pointsr/Pimax

This is the piece you probably need less. Buy only this

and some strips of double sided Velcro to make it thicker if needed.


use the 18mm as front cover (and a cut of 6mm for the nose)

u/onajag · 2 pointsr/LifeProTips

Easiest way is to use a threader like this one:

"Plan B" involves undoing a metal hanger, a long shoestring, and piece of masking tape.

u/SoCalDan · 2 pointsr/bjj
u/deepmotion · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

Haha, it’s a “mounting system” that I’m actually super happy with!

Just two long pieces of Velcro strapping (about 1” wide) threaded over the desk frame but under the desk top. The Velcro overlaps itself around the bottom of the case, by about 18”. I also stuck a plastic door bumper between the case and the desk leg, to keep the case hanging more or less vertical.

It’s very very solid. Much more than I would have anticipated. I can hit the power button on the case without any movement at all.

Here is an Amazon link to the straps

u/qruxtapose · 2 pointsr/OculusQuest

The long wait for the VRCover drove me to find an alternative so I took a gamble on some Vive face cushions. There are probably better alternatives but here is what I did:


Bought this

and this


I cut the velcro strips into little rectangles and put them on the glasses spacer, then I simply attached the face cushion to spacer. It doesn't fit perfectly, you gotta work it into the correct shape. However I actually dig the foam padding, it's more comfortable than the stock foam and doesn't absorb sweat which I really like. It's not a high quality product though, there is some tearing at the seams but it doesn't seem to be getting any larger. Also depending on how you get the cushion to fit there could be a little leakage on the sides, not much though. I don't know notice it at all while playing. No idea if that makes the Quest vulnerable to sun damage so be careful and don't blame me if you damage your Quest. Lastly, the foam makes wearing certain glasses uncomfortable, I use some thin harry potter style glasses for VR though and they work just fine. Obviously not a perfect solution but it works well for me.


Edit: Just noticing there are Vive Pro cushions (I hadn't noticed before). Those might work out better for glasses. Can't say for sure.

u/deliciousreindeer · 2 pointsr/hotas

You can remove them but I personally just leave them attached all the time, I don't find that they get in the way of anything. I use this chair for my normal computer stuff too, the brackets haven't changed anything. Here's a picture of how my chair looks with the brackets to give you a better idea (don't mind the messy cables on the floor). My previous chair wasn't as wide as this one, so the brackets kind of squished my legs a little when I was sitting in it, but it's not a problem with my current chair.

The brackets are very sturdy, you can swivel and rotate them but it takes a lot of force to do so. There's no movement at all when I use my joystick. The only thing is with the velcro - over time, after you've attached and un-attached your joystick so many times, it loses its strength, in which case the joystick does wiggle around a little bit. I personally just replace the velcro every once in a while, and that works fine for me. You could try a heavier duty velcro if it's a concern. I've been using this kind and it's been good enough for me. Hope this helps!

u/neoneddy · 2 pointsr/hockeygoalies

I bought this leather sewing awl

Hey, remember that Home Ec stuff you learned? You get to use it now.

When my stuff gets cut or stitching starts to fail, this fixes it right up.

u/Gsusruls · 2 pointsr/funny

Looks shockingly similar the button I just bought off of

It allows you to prerecord a sound, so it's like Staples' THAT WAS EASY, except now you can have it say, YOU'RE OLD NOW.

u/Malarowski · 2 pointsr/Curling

So I think people make it sound harder than it is. I ordered this:


Then I made paper cutouts of the rough shape of the sliders I want, transfered that to the teflon (with sharpie or so). Cut it out with a saw roughly and then just sanded with 120 to more precise shape, 200 to make it smooth, 600 to "polish" and then some sheep skin for really smooth edges at the end. The velcro stuff glued on to it out of the box and so far after couple months of curling having no issues with it adhering either to shoe nor teflon. The etched ones were expensive. I switches shoes since so the slider isn't perfect shape anymore, but still works perfectly well for curling so far. I also bought 2-component glue and all kinds of fancy chemicals to make it stick better, but the Chinese velcro has some magic glue on it already. Don't overthink it and just give it a try.

P.S. with size 9, the 12x12 sheet was a bit tight, but should work up to 11 or so, depending what size slider you need. You can probably experiment with the hole in the middle etc. I also purchased these: but they are a bit thin and don't slide fast enough imo, prefer the PTFE 1/4". Feel free to shoot me more questions, but it's really much simpler than it seems and a lot of people make it out to be.

u/amw157 · 2 pointsr/answers

You know they make things specifically for that purpose. I got this one on Amazon. It did its job remarkably well.


u/Lindaeve · 2 pointsr/sewing

Have you tried marking with a wash-out fabric marker? I use the little Japanese markers to mark quilting lines, should work for hem lines too.

u/muh-shin-knees · 1 pointr/billiards

The Velcro has a sticky back that will glue to almost any surface. I just prepped the bag and the patches by cleaning them with alcohol. I didn't even have to stitch anything. It glues on very strong. I got it from my local hardware store. I'm sure you can find something similar online Like This

u/kfinny99 · 1 pointr/marketing

You can buy iron-on hemming tape for situations like this, by the way. Just stick it on the tag and iron it down. It takes a little longer than cutting the tag off, but it helps you avoid sharp-edged tags and lets you continue to read the washing recommendations.

u/DoomRyGuy · 1 pointr/DeskCableManagement

If you want the 'I dont want to see any hanging wires look', you might get good results if you mount the power strip beneath your desk. Since it seems rather large it may be heavy. You can either screw it into your desk or you could try heavy duty Velcro Strips. There are also under desk trays and baskets you can use to just hold everything.

If you dont mind some wires showing, you can try sleeves for the cables and use a cable box for the power strip.

u/phantompowered · 1 pointr/bicycling

Not to be a dick, but "buy a thing you didn't already buy" is a bad solution.

As for DIY I found this stuff:

u/thomas533 · 1 pointr/Ultralight

Go to your local fabric store and buy a yard of rip-stop nylon for around $5 and a cordlock (or this kit from ripstopbytheroll). If you don't already have one yourself, find a friend or relative that has a sewing machine. Watch this video. In about 20 minutes, you will be the proud owner of a brand new stuff sack that is exactly the right size (with that yard of fabric you can actually make a few stuff sacks!). Then post a picture of your creation over on /r/MYOG and prepare for the onslaught of karma you will receive for your amazing creation!

u/curtaturc · 1 pointr/Coilporn

Get some cord locks like these

Set up a few along the length of the wire and move them back as you go. If you do it right it should keep everything in line pretty well.

u/[deleted] · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

This and this off your list go really well with this material off mine! I want to make it into a nice romper!

Thank you for the contest!

u/theem3thod · 1 pointr/homelab

I use for cable management and something like depending on the location.

I used to zip tie all the things, but hated having to cut a bunch just to add or remove a cable.

u/veriix · 1 pointr/Gameboy

I would use something like this plastic velcro which could also give the games a floating effect from the back. You could alternatively use standard velcro but it would be harder to keep them perfectly level.

u/allelopath · 1 pointr/Tools

Hmmm ... not a bad idea get some sanding discs, a roll of velcro

So velcro has 2 sides (called hook and loop in the link). Which is the soft side? I would need a lot of one kind for each disc and just an 8x8 circle of the other kind, which would attach to the metal disc of the sander. Which (hoop, link) do you think would be best where?

u/Israel_Madden · 1 pointr/OculusQuest

I bought my Velcro on amazon but I went to Home Depot for a D ring and found the same Velcro there as well

Easy Threader Flexible Needle Drawstring replacement and craft tool by schaller

This thing works like a champ. Takes seconds to re-thread drawstrings

u/theoriginalrat · 1 pointr/wma

I'm also a big fan of this thing:

You can get a curved needle for it, and it's been a huge help in punching through thicker materials when I'm making gear (leather, ballistic nylon, etc).

u/alphabennettatwork · 1 pointr/hammockcamping

A little more compact version and if you're looking instead to add snaps, Kamsnaps are awesome for that.

u/thebatmannnn · 1 pointr/Patches

you can try something like this, which is attached via adhesives on both the patch and the box. once they are both secured, you can stick the patch on or take it off the box whenever you'd like.

u/PC_Battlestations · 1 pointr/AskBattlestations
u/Crabbity · 1 pointr/woodworking

oh nice, i didnt even look that close, it looks almost exactly like mine (i just spray glued a cloth measuring tape to it.)

u/crossedx · 1 pointr/camping

You could try some of that Iron on hemming material to close the hole up.

u/Thethuthinnang · 1 pointr/Atlanta

What kind of altering? If it's just hemming, maybe you could use this stuff to get by in the meantime?

u/Peteostro · 1 pointr/Pimax

I use the DAS that i had for the vive, ordered the 3d printed pieces to hook the pimax to it. Pimax face foam felt good but need the HMD around an inch or two more from my face. Used double sided velcro in between the face foam and HMD and it looks like it just might be enough.

u/oceansRising · 1 pointr/CrossStitch

Check ebay and amazon. This should have everything you need.

P.S The spool things are called bobbins and you can get them in plastic and cardboard form, I personally use cardboard but it doesn't matter that much.

u/ethanw24 · 1 pointr/cats

If the bottom of the box is flush and your on hardwood, this is what we use for a very similar problem.

VELCRO Brand - Industrial Strength - 2" x 4" Strips, 4 Sets - Black

u/day1patch · 1 pointr/motorcycles

While the naysayers are right and it's a bit unsafe I recommend strong velcro tape like this, in the case of a crash the battery pack would be ripped off, but under all other conditions that velcro will hold anything securely in place even at speed.

u/midnightpictureshow · 1 pointr/DisneyPinSwap

I honestly think you're shilling these all wrong because you're missing the whole point. You keep downplaying that they are magnetic but thats the main selling point of the product.

There are plenty of options for locking pin backs out there (those are three different links), and these screw-on types are actually reviled by many for warping the studs on the back of pins, or leaving dents on it.

Again, the ability to turn pins into magnets is absolutely brilliant. Locking pin backs is not new territory.

u/Kayanota · 1 pointr/knives

I used things like these, my oven, and a YouTube tutorial. Kydex, when heated is very pliable, and cools solid. If you mess up, you can heat and remold again. You only need .06 thickness, any thicker is left to gun holsters. I then use an old belt to help mold a g-clip from a Kydex strip, and thats really it. I haven't bought a sheath in many years. Any further questions, just reply, I'll check back in the morning.

u/GreenPINEApples · 1 pointr/surfing

Aquaseal and/or iron on patch kit. Patagooch is also pretty good about repairing/replacing 'defective' merchandise so you may just try and return them.

If you are worried about tying knots (be safe! Have a knife to get out of it quick if needed), try Velcro straps. They work with just one wrap, no knowledge of knots needed, and easy to get someone out. They are also easy to buy at a local hardware store.

Thanks, I found some felt my mother had from another project, and I think I agree that this is the ideal stuff. I had imagined felt to be more cottony and easily frayed, but it seems really stable.

Have you ever used this iron on hemming tape?
Seems like I might save myself a ton of time if that works reasonably well for this project.

Like others have said dog bed with rubber bottom should help. If you want it more secured add this to the bottom of the bed.

Maybe try something like this Scotch(R) All-Weather Fasteners, 2 Sets of 1 Inch x 3 Inches, Strips, Clear (RFD7090)

It was probably these ones, but I can't remember which size I got specifically.

To be honest, you're asking a lot for your budget. If you want to sit next to the speaker and be able to listen to it at a reasonable volume, something like this would probably work well enough:

But if you want to be able to actually be active and hear your music, you're going to have to get something much bigger. That said, you can do it without breaking your budget.

My advice would be to by a pair of these:

Power them with this:

And fasten them all together with this stuff (it's incredibly strong, trust me)

That comes in at around $49 and while it's not going to blast your music, it will do you much better than any sub $50 bluetooth speaker.

Now if you're willing to spend some extra money, get one of these:

I can attest from personal experience that it's a pretty powerful little speaker, sounds great, and you can pair two of them for stereo listening.

Also, change out all of the flat drawstrings on your gi pants with this.

Stretchy rope


Drawstring cord

Edit: It looks like Killer Bee also has drawstrings cut to size here.

Cut a small hole. Stick the eyelet over the hole. Use the eyelet tool to crimp it into place. Real simple. You just need to buy the kit this one cuts the hole, places and fixes the eyelet all in one squeeze of the handle.

Interesting thank you!! That just may do it :D I wish they said what the grommets were made of (am thinking that if they're a weak tin that they'd break easier), though if I order that and have 100 grommets I could literally put like 20 on the thing and use paracord (I've got some on-hand that'd be perfect for this) through them all to make a 'net' at the top that terminates at a hook so I can hang it from a chain (as it'll be an outside punching bag, am hanging it from a tree-limb :) )

I find the upside-down, shin-mounted controller method the most natural for foot tracking too. I've had good luck with one inch velcro one-wrap. One strip between the trigger and closest sensor, and one higher up the leg/controller.

The Vive wand naturally wants to settle off the actual bone of the shin towards the outside of the leg and foot. This position also seems to be a little less prone to occlusion issues.

I'm going to pick up a pair of the flipsteady VCM1 controller mounts a user posted below since they look nice and sturdy.

Official lighthouse-enabled foot-tracking is probably on the way, but it's nice to experiment until then!

I've used this to add velcro to a bunch of stuff. Super strong and reasonably priced. I needed to add a cloth badge onto the front of my carrier and couldn't find way to make it easy to remove. Worked very well. I've even had leftover velcro that I have used for other projects.

I mean, can't they change their company name? I guess its probably not cheap, but then this is a problem literally because they have been too successful in their marketing

edit: Maybe I'm wrong, not an expert, but it seems to me they are in this predicament because they advertised their products as Velcro, not Velcro hook and loop.

None of them list hook and loop anywhere, though to their credit they do list Velcro BRAND very clearly. And one of them does mention the product type as fastener. They should start advertising and packaging them as Velco brand hook and loop fasteners. That way if someone challenges their trademark in court, they can point out that every single one of their product's promotional material clearly separates the product from the company - right now, that's not clear in their own marketing (outside this video of course).
