Even easier is to buy the little self-stick velcro patches and put them in
there along the flap intended to keep the bow in place to keep rear bow from
falling down -- use superglue on the patches if the self-adhisive doesn't
hold. That's what I did (I used about 5 velcro points along the length of
the "loop") -- works like a charm and it's not permanent, visible nor will
it cause holes in the top.
