Default Homemade Planer board releases

Ok so I have looked high and low for someone that has made these style releases. I was able to find tid-bits of information on different releases and decided to go for it. Mind you I have not used these yet but I will be using rubber bands in the mouth of the clips. If I did the math correctly these cost me ~ $0.36/ea. yes 36 cents each when they are charging upwards of $5.00/ea. for similar style releases. In the long run I will buy a bunch of the Off-shore releases but for now this will do and should be much easier to read when smaller fish are on because of the stretch in the rubber bands.

This is what I cam up with:
100 shower curtian hooks $11.99
100 Stainless Steel Size 8 split rings $12.88
100 Alligator clips with plastic shields $10.98

Parts laid out:

Inserting the split ring thru the hole in the alligator clip:

Inserting the clip back into the plastic sleeve:

Lastly all I did was push the shower curtian hook thru the plastic sleeve and split ring:

Here are 50 of the 100:

Hope this helps someone in the future that decides to save themselves some money.

Good fishing to all!
