Backpack attachment Answered

Hi
I am planning to design a system for attaching stuff to my backpack but have gotten stuck right at the beginning :(
I was planning on using MOLLE or tek-lok to do this, but as i live in norway it is extremely expensive to order from the US.
So i was wondering if anybody know how to make something similar, from things lying around the house or is easily obtainable.

I have a picture here to show you what I am thinking in the lines of

Look for "rivet" products- I use them for my cell phone and got it for cheap off of ebay.

There are many alternative backpack attachment methods.  The MOLLE equipment or other plastic moulded parts are just the latest innovation.  Do you have access to any Norwegian military surplus gear?  You might find NATO or Soviet design equipment spring clips that are usually used to clip on ammo pouches to web banding on other equipment.  You could also design your own velcro loops, even snap-buttons or regular button and buttonhole designs to fasten a loop on the accessory pouch to the webbing band that is on the main bag.  Just look at images of older military gear and I'm sure you can figure it out.  Good luck.
