WTF? Reverse attachment knee pucks?

After having scrubbed by pucks down so far Elton would be proud, I find my self in a real jam.

Apparently, most pucks have the "hook" portion of the velcro attachment system. They attach to the "loop" portion on the pants. My suit has the Hook portion on the pants and I need the loop part on the puck. Impossible to find.

Has anyone else noticed this with their suits?

I think Jeff Lee at Ashpalt and Gas can custom make a leather pair for me.

Not only does the leather wear as well as the plastic, it is quieter, smoother, and smells like Bar-B-Que when you come into the pits. Cool.

Get two pieces of velcro and stick them back to back between the puck and leathers.

B750 and B1078 RR both gone now.

Same thing with my AXO leathers.
The velcro actually came off one of the pucks. Couldn't find a replacement with the right velcro portion on it, so I reset the one that came off with contact glue and it's fine now.

better yet!! make you own suit for the pucks, leather is easier to find!

If at first you don't succeed, use a hammer instead
