Nicely done! Go to Cape Union Mart for the maglite clamps. Ask the manager to order some for you, if you're lucky he'll give it to you for free. That's how I got mine.

Hi Mangi

Did you not have any problems with the weight of the tackle bag on the joint of the L frame? (the L corner)
or did you put some sort of bracket for strength
Shot.

I was worried about the same thing, so I drilled a hole through the frame and connect-it block and put a bolt and nut in there. Feels much stronger and have not had any problems since.

Seeing that the frame has been going strong from 2009, it seems that my contraption works. ::S

Use flair clips, you can buy them at yacht/boating shops

nice, just don't be tempted to fill up the big box, unless off course you are preparing for special forces selection
