Elastic Wrist / forearm mount for N3 Neptune Can't Post

Anyone come up with a good way to mount the N3 on your wrist / forearm without velcro? Something similar to the Viso mount?

I've tried multiple types of elastic and the best thing I could come up with is supertacking the rubber mount to the elastic from a long sock. It holds the best so far, but when I am head down it'll start creeping it's way from my forearm down to my wrist, especially if I am pegged out with my arms to my side. My jumpsuit helps to hold it on, but I am getting a new one without sleeves, and I think it will slide down worse on my bare arm.

Try cutting an ACE elastic elbow brace in half...



They come in several size diameters, last a long time, are washable...not as cheap as an old sock but close.

Instrument glove. The best type is (at least used to be) sold by Square D. L&B makes one for the Viso which might fit.

Hi

I think your best bet would be to go to your local sporting good store and get an ace bandage for your wrist. I got a Pd wrist band and also the N3 hard mount case and it works great for me.

Good Luck

Some people prefer not to have anything on their hands...I like a forearm placement as it reduces the likelihood of a snag somewhat.

I use the standard Velcro, the OP seems to not want that...I don't have any problems with it ~ but I'm not doing the faster fall rate stuff he is.

If I'm not mistaken, it looks like the picture you attached was the PD wristband + a silicone case - how did you attach the two?

Also, how did you attach the hardcase to the Ace bandage or wristband and do you have a picture of that by any chance? Thanks!

So just screw the whole damn thing right through the wristband then? Sounds easy enough!

I thought you said screw it through the wristbone. Would be effective lol.

Any word on the official Alti-2 version of this? I feel like back in May or June they said "almost ready, coming soon!" I've been holding off on making a homemade version with an ACE or sweatband or something but it's been so long...
