    Hi!<br><br><br>I'm a bit new to the slingshot scene if, and I'm having a bit of trouble in figuring out how to attach flatbands to a set of forks! I'm trying to uses a bit of spare rubber to wrap around the band to secure them, but it never seems to hold- is there any chance of one of you fine gents doing a 'how-to' video? <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2"><br><br>thanks!

    you basically wrap it until you have enough left to wrap it twice around pliers. you put pliers over your wrapping and wrap the spare rubber around the pliers twice, open the pliers to grab the end of the rubber and pull the end underneath the last layers.

    so wrap over the band and forks, pliers down, and wrap and tuck under the pliers, through the gap?

    The Kabuto is simple to make, I sawed it out of a Multiplex (plywood) board and attached to an old broomstick.
