Post subject:  Fastening the straps on an L1 suit?

I bought a PBF gas mask and an L1 NBC suit last year for a photo project. It got a bit delayed, so now it's finally time to use them together for the first time (I don't know if the PBF and L1 were ever used together, but they were the most badass combo I could find Very Happy). But I can't quite figure out how to fasten the straps on the L1...

I'm fairly certain the small end of the button goes into the small stretchy holes on the straps, but how then do you attach it on the receiving end? Does anyone know?

Thanks in advance!


Attaching photos since I'm not sure I'm explaining it clearly:

The button actually slots into a hole on the receiving end which holds it in place, and then the strap fastens onto the button. Hope that makes sense!

Thanks for the reply!

I think I know what you mean at least. Smile
Force the buttons through the holes on the receiving end (so they're permanently attached there), right? Then push the strap onto it to fasten.

In that case, should the buttons go on the outside or inside of the "buckle"? Since I'm bad at explaining, I'll attach a diagram. Would it be A or B? Smile

Thanks again!
