Excellent. I might try it. Thx

Following. Please let us know how it is doing, and suggestions. (Fencing father here)

So far the housing itself has fared reasonably well. There's a few chips on it, but it hasn't broken yet. The weak link is the clipping mechanism which doesn't seem to last very long. Unfortunately that part will need to be replaced somewhat regularly (if you're fencing once a week, probably once every 2-4 weeks depending on how aggressive you are with it).

I can't make any promises, but I might end up designing a second version that will accept the metal clip and spring from a standard body cord.
