Mark,

I have a light weight Ultra Vest and am not sure if it mounts in the same position but here are some photos.

Yes, thank you indeed. I've been wanting to modify my vest by adding these straps on. How did you attach the other part to the vest?

Hello Ops

I just received a pair of Tiffen "Vest Rear Tie-down Straps" ( P/N 2507845 ) but they came with no install instructions. Has anyone installed the straps and /or have the factoty sheet. I called Tiffen but they couldn't give me any answer or instuctions <_< .

Thanks for your help
