Cool. I'm glad it can help.

I really only dragged it back out, because someone who was looking for it, couldn't find the thread.

Re: Cape Clip Attachment... A Tutorial


Well, the sizes I used were pretty much just judged based on what they had in the hardware store near me. I really didn't pay attention to what size they were labeled as being.

I'm one of many ignorant Americans that've chosen to not pay any attention to the metric system, which is what these parts all went by. I really didn't bother to retain any of the measurements. Sorry.

What I've been planning on doing, ever since I originally put this thread together, was to go back down to the hardware store and get the same plastic parts again, for just one "knob", assemble it all and then maybe Uncle Ed could dump some silicone onto it, to make a mold for butt-loads of resin ones.

It'd make everyone's life a lot easier... If they chose this route, that is.

If you wanna' get it done immediately though, just take a drive down to your hardware store and just use common sense, as far as the sizes. I myself was fairly limited to what I COULD use, though.

You want the base "washer" to be about 1 1/2" in diameter. That's the one that will ultimately get glued to the underside of your armor. If your hardware store has a decent selection, then they should have these washers of varying thicknesses, as well as having different sized holes in their centers. You're gonna' have to base the size that you choose, based on what your hardware store has to offer. If I were to give you the exact sizes I used, more often than not, what your hardware store has, may not wind up being the same sizes I used.

You want to match up the inside diameter of the hole on the main washer, to the outside diameter of the spacer that MUST fit snuggly inside of it. Again... Whatever your store has, is what you're gonna' be stuck with.

And then with the washer that gets glued to the back side of your cape, the inside diameter of THAT washer, needs to be a slight bit BIGGER than the outside diameter of the spacer that gets glued to the main washer, so that it remains loose enough to slip your cape over the little "nub" that's gonna' be protrding from your armor.

The brass screw and insert are again falling into the category of whatever your store carries. I went with a 1/4" brass screw. that was about an inch long. You eventually wanna' make it stick out of the spacer about 1/4" to 3/8", after it gets countersunk from behind the main washer.

When done, you wanna' wind up with a one piece "Knob" that looks like this...

Lemme' know if you need any more help. :wink

WOOHOO, I am also an ignorant American:cheers.
I see what you are saying. I will go to the hardware store and see what I can find.
If you want to send me the pieces, I will cast them up. I will try to do that if I can find them anyway, I just figure if you already have the pieces ready to go, that would save me some trial and error.

Let me know if you are interested in doing something like that.

Well, I only got the parts I needed. And those are "Gooped" to my wife's Batgirl costume. Those suckers aint comin' off without a fight.

The pictures I provided in the thread, were progress pictures. I didn't make a first set and install them and then make a second set strictly for taking pictures. I took the pictures you see, as I was assembling them.

No worries.

I will swing by the hardware store on the way home and pick up the pieces if I can find them and make a few resin copies.

Thanks for the tutorial!
