How have people been hiding the magnets on this connector? Or have people been using a ring magnet?

I've glued a disc magnet flush into the recess on the face of the adaptor that clamps onto another in a plate on other side of the chap fabric.

Any chance you might be able to post a picture of the magnet setup? Mine didn't come with a recessed area so I'm wondering where it should be...

And so you didn't use the thin ring that the model comes with, if I'm understanding?

I don't have any to hand. I'll try to sort one out when I get home.

You're right, I didn't use the ring that comes with the model. I traced around the foot of the adaptor onto styrene, then around a disc magnet in side that circle to form a ring. I cemented that ring onto another same size circle to make a round plate with a disc magnet sitting flush on one one face. I stuck a few cube magnets onto the back to increase the strength of the pull.

Awesome, thank you. So the big silver disc in the hose greeblie is a larger magnet, correct? That's a good idea. I was trying to figure out how to do it. Razz
