Torso Grip Ver 2.0
It was made from a duo rope tightener.
A 3mm hole was drilled thru the plastic on both sides.

A 3mm aluminium rod of length 180mm was inserted thru the holes.
The rod was then ergonomically shaped to comfortably hold mecha kits of up to 1/100 in scale.
Due to the reduced interior space, the internal spring was taken out, modified and replaced.
To fit the Torso Grip onto a bendy spine, just squeeze the tightener on both ends and slot it on the spine.
Height adjustment is also done in a similar fashion.

Let's check it out.

Actually i think the one i used is a little too large,looking for smaller ones. Black also. But the lobang must remain the same.
