I noticed a new flatband securing system for steel frames. A small drum with wedge rotates inside the fork to apply tension to the band. The contact surface for the wedge appears to be angled so it should adjust for different band thicknesses. This frame example is a hammer grip but obviously the same wedge system will work on a thumb brace or pincher frame design. Interesting.
