Silnylon and silpoly question
Apr 10, 2021 at 6:26 pm #3708514
First off.. I can not draw a stick figure so sewing is out of question for me.
Is there any tape or something I could use to attach a mini magnet to my gate wood cape. I want to roll the doors up and The loop attachment they provide standard is great.. However, I would have loved it if they had another one near the upper top part, on both sides. Wish I could sew one on myself.. But not happening, so I was wondering if I could somehow use a mini magnet or if someone has a better idea.. Do tell. Thanks..Apr 10, 2021 at 8:03 pm #3708523Daniel OxnardBPL Member

Placing magnet(s) in a circular silnylon patch by Gear Aid would work flawlessly.Apr 11, 2021 at 6:34 am #3708546
Gotcha thanks!!Apr 11, 2021 at 12:52 pm #3708573Michael BBPL Member
Or you could just get some magnets with holes in the middle and tie two together with a length of cordage that would work for your purposes. When you want to use them, just place one magnet on the inside of your door, wrap the other magnet around to the outside and connect them together. The cordage would hold the door in place. I suspect you could accomplish something similar with a couple regular magnets and a length of tape stuck to itself instead of the the cordage.Apr 11, 2021 at 2:33 pm #3708582Daniel OxnardBPL Member
I would look into neodymium magnets. Crazy strong. I have two taped to my pack shoulder strap that hold my knife, or .32 acp (depending on where I am)Apr 11, 2021 at 2:40 pm #3708584
I do have the very tiny mini round neodymium magnets. Actually just ordered the clear silnylon patches from gear aid. Looking on amazon.. i also found the mini magnets with holes in them. Good idea @ Michael B!!!
