Need footman loops
« on: December 24, 2019, 04:07:43 PM »
Does anyone know of a source for this type of footman loop? It’s on the upper door armor, driver’s side. It is 5/16” dia., inside width is 1-5/8”, outside width 2-1/4”. It stands off the door ¾” and the rivet ends are 7/32”. I need two. The thought of making these makes me gag, so if I can’t find them, I’ll plug the holes in the door and drill for a standard loop, riveted on as per the other door. Thanks for any information.

Come on Jon...you know you want to make them. ????

Did you ask Santa?

Btw, just checked my stash of footman loops and I don’t have any like you’re looking for.

Interesting.  We have two original doors off of one halftrack.  One of them has riveted footman loops and one has footman loops attached with screws and nuts.

I don't have any but those look similar to the ones on my perimeter rail.  I think making them will be easier than drilling through the doors ;D
