Full Disclosure: I have a fork brace on the DR's forks so that the area to attach the Skinz is probably 1/4" to 3/8" (above the brace).

This one:


Should I think about ditching the zip-ties and going with a gaiter clamp instead?

Like this?


Perhaps there's another trick to keep them from popping off?

TIA.
have you tried using the fork brace itself as a clamp?
