Apatch | Pull tabs
« on: March 06, 2018, 12:57:49 AM »
Hey guys,

Working on a special project.
I was inspired by the S&S pull tabs and was looking for a geed replacemet made in the EU. As I did not found what I was looking for, I started creating my own to replace the webbing types.

Right know the design is at 95% and I had some prototypes made (3D printing). I have tested them on my kit and so far I'm really happy how they are at this moment.
The next thing will be looking for a manufacturer who can build a mold (injection molding) and see what this costs.



What do you guys think.



Grtz

Looks cool.  Injection molding is cost effective at high quantities,  if you are only doing a few hundred it may not be the way to go.  I have a connection for injection molding that is currently doing some parts for me.  Let me know if you want info.
If you don't try you can't fail.  If you don't fail you can't learn.  If you can't learn then Darwin is calling you.

Looks good. What about adding a deep “V” notch on the bottom, to accommodate setting them on the corners of AK mags?

Blue Force Gear has a V shaped pull tab. It's as ugly as sin. Probably 3-4 times as big as the S&S pull tab.
