Stohlquist Descent tether question

I bought the new Descent this year and didnt really want to buy a new tether with the Velcro attachment, was going to use my old tether. Problem is if I just velcro it to the vest, the first time I use the tether the velcro centering thingie will probably be donated to the river and I like the centering concept. Has anyone gone with this approach and found a good way or ghetto way to attach the tether ring to the velcro strap?

they sell sticky back velcro. i think it is 2" wide but you could cut 3/4" wide strips 3" long with sissors and stick them back to back over the ring bar material. you could then stich by hand with thread and needle to back it up.

I bet if you put a big enough velcro sticker on and heat up real well to set the glue, it would hold well. Some velcro might hold too well to release under a small load, if that is a concern.
