UPDATE on the O-ring strapping system. After realizing the potential for the batteries coming out, I added something to make it more secure.

You will now need in addition:

Two composite TC3 hexes
Two button head 4-40 screws

Here's what it looks like...

BTW, that battery isn't going ANYWHERE...it's held in there solid...trust me.

brian glad you understood me see it was for your benefit . i see you used some washers to keep the oring from falling out of place and a stop to keep them for sliding out! i wish you luck because my buddy tried that also and it worked better! but the batteries still fell out.
