A question on Smith Scabs recaps?
: I got them and put them on today, but they immediately popped off. Any ideas on how to get them stay on? Upholstery tape with the sticky stuff on the inside? Sorry I donnot know the correct name.

I used 3M double-stick tape. It's foam about 1/16 thick and I used alot of it. Heat up the strips before applying the stick. I used a lighter after peeling one side, apply heat and stick. Caps never came off. Roll up a towel or something to fit into the knee pocket and put it under heavy weights overnite. The caps aren't exactly the right shape, I them about that, too. I think velcro works, like Gambin suggested. Once with Pro-designed knee pads, I used short screws put around the top and sides, that works if you don't mind the metal. Hope this helps.
