Figure this might be a good place to ask this, but where is the best place to get a V-Hook (or Dixie Cup bracket) option in Canada? I see a lot of solutions on Etsy but they all tend to be expensive with $50 shipping on top of the price for the item.

So I guess the question is, where did you guys get your V-Hook?

I'm going this route and it will run you half the price of a v-hook from Etsy. (strong magnets)

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07XCK2PSG - That will attach to the gun box at a slight forward angle.

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B08VNWHJMD - And these will screw into the holes that normally hold the v-hook to the bottom of the neutrona wand.

You're welcome! It works rather well as I installed my magnets last night.
I saw the idea someone had posted on one of the Facebook proton pack groups. :cool:

The only minor issue is that when you install the 2 round 'cup' magnets on the bottom of the neutrona wand,
you'll have to make a new hole for one of the magnets. It's not that difficult and the included screws will work.

Here are the photos I downloaded from the Facebook post as to give you a better idea of where the magnets will go.
(The proton pack is the Spirit Halloween one, but it shows you where they placed the 'gun' magnet on the gun box)
You can place yours at whatever angle you feel more comfortable with, of course.

The placement of the 'gun' magnet on a full-sized pack will be further back on the gun box, of course!
