Simple and fun install... Bought 2" wide stainless steel hangers, #10x1" ss panhead screws, used 3M 5200 to seal and bond the hangers to the underside of the cockpit roof and added 2" wide webbing with sewn in clips and I was done in under 30 mins with this project... (the Admiral was sewing the web strap clips on one end so add another 10 minutes)...

Still have to add condoms to the ditch bag... No, its for missing or badly damaged body parts like fingers, feet, toes, etc. and other wounds...

nice clean install. and a good location too.

To expand on your kit, one of the best ever first aid devices we've added to our kit is a stapler. Ours came from a good friend who is a vet, but you can buy them all over the web.

This saved a holiday when one of our party lacerated her hand. We were isolated and med care would have destroyed 2 days of the vacation. 2 glasses of champagne, 4 quick staples, antiseptic and an antibiotic (in that order) and she was good. In 5 days I pulled the staples.

I've always kept sutures in the 'first aid' box but hadn't though about a stapler.
Great idea!

So I just search skin stapler? Do you have a brand name or source name for these? Sounds like a great idea.

When you need sutures and have to suture yourself, then you really say oooooowwwwwwwweeeeeeee. The staples are quick and much less painful.

When I was a young Marine Corporal I had the honor of removing about eight of those babies out of my 1st fire team leader’s head after he had I night he couldn’t remember in Mexico. I smiled :D every time he winched and I meant it when I said “this is going to hurt you more then me”.

Mike I had no idea those were so readily available and easy to use. Great tip.

I have used superglue for this purpose also, but it burns like hell. Works though.

I forgot to update the photo page when I changed websites... I used 2" footman loops sealed with 5200.. here is what you didn't see (and yes, the ADM has lots of head room under the bag):

Good one! In this case, the champagne was for the patient. Fussy patient!
