Velcro on PALs placement – quick and dirty

Sorry for long lack of posts, I’m still here and even reading the blogroll.

I’ve seen at least two commercial solutions which put velcro surface over the PALs surface. Can’t believe it could happen.

To make a single-cell wide three inches height velcro attachment point we need:

  • strip of loop velcro 6 (six) inches long and 1 (one) inch wide;
  • strip of hook velcro 3 (three) inches long and 1 (one) inch wide;
  • strip of paper about 4 inches long and about 1.25 inches wide.

Slip a hook strip under the PALs, slip a piece of paper over it, put a loop strip over the PALs and slip its ends under the PALs over the paper. Pull out the paper. Ha! Kiss your PALs goodbye, you’ll never get them back again, velcro will stay forever on them. Though, narrow knife or ruler can help, but it is questionably.

One-piece soft clip for PALs attachment

It (five inches long) is compatible with specific PALs setup on the pouch – two-space-two, commonly found on Maxped pouches and some other manufacturers. See illustration:

Though, the longer version (7 inches) will be compatible with another PALs stup on the pouch, never found on any pouch: two-space-one-space-two. I’ll make some for testing purposes in future.
