    What's the best way to attach a pouch to a piece of tbg? I've been trying the constrictor method but I must be doing it wrong cuz it's not working. I know this has probably been asked and answered but I can't find a solution anywhere!
    (Cue someone finding it for me with little to no effort on their part)

    That's pretty cool. :cool:

    kohlqez, what about the constrictor knot method isn't working for you? Are the bands slipping out of the knots, or is it something else? I use constrictors not only for flats but also for my Dankung style tubing. No issues so far.

    If you haven't seen it, this is a great view of how to do them:

    This video is the clearest ever for constrictor knots and works great with Dankung tubes. What is the best tie? Some say wire damages the rubber and can be a high speed health hazard, cotton is a bit frail, paracord inner needs melting and I could damage my tubes and the commercial tubes which came with my 1745s look like some sort of rubber but so neat I can't see how they've tied it?

    Jim I have some polypropolene twine that works well. But my all time favorite is a spool of nylon braided (not twisted, diamond braided) twine.

    I do melt the ends so potential perhaps for damage. If your concerned the other option would be a dab of glue to keep it from fraying and coming undone.

    This method is similar to what I use, though I don't yet have a banding jig like he does - I just use my hands. In the video, he uses string to pull the Theraband strip through - I use a small, cheap surgical forceps (Ebay) or a small needlenose pliers to do it. The second video shows band attachment to a fork, not a pouch, but you can see him use a forceps to pull the Theraband through. I use that method on both the pouch and the forks.
