Strap Strength

Recommended Posts

This is kind of a dumb question but I have to ask and verify. I'm making a scale top and I'm making the straps out of a column of scales, where there's only 2x 16g 5/16 rings at each segment to hold it all up. Is this realistically going to be strong enough?

It's costume, not for SCA armor or anything, but I don't want the rings to open up over time.

I think the width will be ok. They connect to wider shoulder pieces so the weight will be distributed out except for the few inches inbetween the shoulders and the cups.

Sounds like the 2x aluminum rings might be on the weaker side so I'll fix that. Thanks for the input.
