<< what are hose clamps they do have the tabs. 

Go to any auto parts store and ask the nice man for some hose clamps.  You 
will need to measure your rattan (diameter) to determine what size clamps you 
will need.

Thorgrim recommends the following: 

First, you will need to recess  the ratan to accept the tabs (notch it so the 
tabs will be flush with the surface) 

Second, place the hilt tabs in the notches, then go around them 4 or 5 times 
with strapping tape (white nylon filament tape) this should hold the hilt in 

3rd, Now put the hose clamps on.  Cover them with duct tape.  The marshals 
won't pass them if they are not covered with duct tape.

Good Luck,
