    A large oring (or orings) stretched across the top of the dome works well, and some people think it works better than latches.

    So take of the latches from the dome and use O ring from one side of the centersection a cross the dome to other side of centersection... think I have seen that done with a nylon tensioning strap... thanks for the tip! Frank

    The nylon tensioning strap was a Colkan thing. I do it without the nylon strap with the orings you mentioned that are exactly the right size.

    Looks like a great solution as the latches tend to pop out..... Mk16 has 4 latches so bit more secure. The double O ring looks like a good Idea! Thanks for showing. Frank
