My girlfriend is building a Batray for her L1. I bought her a really nice OBH harness for it, but I've noticed that if she were to glue both ends of the coupler, we wouldn't be able to reach down into the rocket to remove the harness of it needs washed or replaced. Does anyone see anything wrong with gluing the aft end of the coupler inside the BT, but using rivets on the forward end, essentially making the forward section of BT removable?
I wholeheartedly support the use of sufficiently strong rivets in any opportunity you have to apply them! ^^title

Makes it easier to access internals, easier to collapse and transport, adds an interesting aesthetic to the design, .....the list goes on.

You can order the nice little ones from mcmasterr or walmart (oddly enough).
I have quite a few of the regular rivets that I can use. This was all I needed to hear. I thought it was a good idea, just wanted to make sure I wasn't crazy. Thanks!
