Make the mount and retainer from SVG or PDF template, according to the instructions in Howto section.

Using vise and hacksaw, make two grooves for XL belt in 1/2"x3/8" piece of UHMWPE left over from making sliding elements. Teflon strip will also work and it's very easy to cut with a knife.


Install 3/4" screw into the retainer, tighten it with a nut and install 2 more nuts on the screw. Thread 6-32 screw into the 1/8" hole in the retainer.
