    I came up with a more efficient way to attach bands to a natural ss with straight forktips.<br><br>The direction of the fork is angled and the tip is straight. <br><br><a href="http://www.slickpic.com/s/M3wzO5TThTjTlT/Various/photo#3661581" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://bulk-share.slickpic.com/photo/share/M3wzO5TThTjTlT/800/p/3661581.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><br>This is how i previously attached them which is fully functional and accurate but when pulled the band tip is not stretched evenly.<br><br><a href="http://www.slickpic.com/s/5JE5MJWTYM4UMj/Various/photo#3661595" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://bulk-share.slickpic.com/photo/share/5JE5MJWTYM4UMj/800/p/3661595.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><br>So this is how i do it now:<br><br>All you need is a long strip of TBG<br>I make a base in the direction of the fork <br><br><a href="http://www.slickpic.com/s/x5MDjU5xMEEOYT/Various/photo#3661584" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://bulk-share.slickpic.com/photo/share/x5MDjU5xMEEOYT/800/p/3661584.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><br>This prevents the band and strip from any slippage <br><br>Then i fit the band and place the strip parrel to the forktip<br><br><a href="http://www.slickpic.com/s/MY4MYMmNwTWNTM/Various/photo#3661589" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://bulk-share.slickpic.com/photo/share/MY4MYMmNwTWNTM/800/p/3661589.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><br>I continue the same way until the attachment is secure<br>This way when the bands are pulled the tip is distributed much more even<br><br><a href="http://www.slickpic.com/s/wQuTzMzTwzTmNm/Various/photo#3661591" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://bulk-share.slickpic.com/photo/share/wQuTzMzTwzTmNm/800/p/3661591.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><br>Thank you!

    I didn't have many naturals so didn't have any slippage that way yet but it's worth remembering, very useful!
