Don't Touch the Metal

I do not like attaching metal eyelets to my latex garments but still have to add some kind of opening/closing mechanism where needed. I'm open for suggestions.

For this collar I used two textile straps with snap fasteners and soaked them with liquid black latex (top left).

I cut them apart and glued them behind the latex collar (top right) and reinforced them with a small strip of latex.

The picture at the bottom shows the construction from the front side. When closed only the small pieces of the straps on the right are visible and give the garment an interesting look.

Here is a finished example that uses the same mechanism.
