    Buying the bits can be as expensive as the sum of their parts. Granted the clips on some of the premade stuff can be absolute shite.
    Remember anything you read on the internet was probably written by some guy sitting at home in his underpants! Including this !!

    I have always preferred to pay a little extra for the right gear....on saying that I had the cord already so it was really just the cost of the two Xdeep bolt snaps.£24

    £12 for a bolt snap? For that price it had better come with someone to clip it on and off for me!

    What was it that Allan Shepard (or was it John Glenn?) said about the Apollo program? "...Every part of this rocket was built by the lowest bidder on a government contract".

    2 decent sized boltsnaps, 5mm cord, a big jubilee clip, a foot of garden hose and TimmyG's video is all anyone needs!
    I don't want to get technical or anything, but alcohol IS a solution
