    Has anyone found a solution for attaching velcro filter tabs to the Bright Tangerine Misfit Atom Mattebox. It won't stick to the silicone and I was wondering if anyone had found a solution?

    Thanks,

    Use the back of the metal body of the matte box. Maybe even make an angled tab you can attach to the main body via velcro, too, and mirror the angle of the hood.

    My solution was to put velcro tape on binder clips.



    My local rental houses did manage to get a block of velcro tape to stay on their Atoms, so maybe there's a particular variety or preparation that gets it to stick to the silicone.

    Binder clips is a great shout to be fair. I might do that.

    Found some old paper clips lying around and created a similar thing. Pleased with the result

    That's a good hack. I might do that as well.
