    Picture My best strap effort yet - gator Breitling style deployant

    I'm starting to get the hang of this.

    Bob brand deployant clasp - loops are anchored with JB Kwik Weld for permanence and to avoid the need for stitches, and inside is lined with heavy black "briefcase" leather - all mated together with Dap "kitchen counter" contact cement...which stays flexible, but is impossible to dislodge once cured. Waxed with beeswax and deeply hand polished with brown Kiwi, and edged with black "Heel and Edge" polish.

    Fits into the slots VERY tightly with no "give" or wiggle anywhere.

    Looks super-heavy duty. Which adapters did you use?

    Very nice! Enjoyable I think to personalize, make it one of a kind that suites your own particular taste. As has been stated on this forum before, that can also be done with the apps and layouts you choose.

    Found these on eBay - conveniently located in upstate NY instead of the usual China and under $10. (And he tosses in a springbar tool with each set)
