    All good info. I had already taken a stab at creating my own model inspired from other clips I've seen. So I'll share what I have so far and leave it open for anybody to modify, tweak or print it with a 3d printer. You would zip tie the strip using the two slots on the right side, and the vertical holes on the left.clip.JPG

    It's still a rough draft, but I thought I would make a small channel about 1mm deep for the strip on the right side to help keep the body engaged without relying on zap strap pressure and compression

    Version two in testing, nice snug fit so far. original, the thin material felt too flimsy to handle the hook, so made it thicker

    I did not find a need to tension my strips. They just seemed to stay in place.
