Does anyone know where I can get the black hose connector that fits onto your jump suit? I have a magnet in my hose right now that I put onto the clasp on my vest but I would like it to be more screen accurate.

Cheers.

I've used a plastic 90 degree elbow from H Depot plumbing section for the last 8 years that's looked and worked pretty well!

I did pretty much the same thing.

I know there's someone on here that sells them, though I can't remember who... I'd imagine most of the chestbox suppliers would, but I don't know. I have one they made, though, and it's, like was already mentioned a black elbow join with some sort of round base glued on with magnets in it.

Thanks all/ It's not the black elbow that I am looking for but the square piece that is attached to the flight suit.

Not sure what you mean. Most pilots just have the elbow connected to the suit with a plate on the inside of the suit.

elbow (with magnet) --> suit --> metal plate inside

I just put a big metal washer in the back end of the side pocket and stick it on there with a bunch of cheap rare-earth magnets (Harbor Freight - about $2)



Make sure that a magnet will actually stick to the washer - brass, aluminium, and other non-ferrous materials wont work.
