Custom Made Carrier Deck Tie Downs

Tools 'n' Tips Article by Peter Nesterak

 

 

Here are two photos which show the way to make nice and simple but good looking tie down points on a self made modern carrier deck.  I made my own tool from an old Xacto knife which is made from alluminum and milled with a cutting-off wheel five narrow channels.

With such a tool and with a hammer you can punch the tie down points wherever you want in a plastic or other plate.

I hope this way will help some guys to make their own carrier decks without any other etched parts which are not cheap and difficult to work with.
