What is this called?

Post by Rykard » Wed Dec 04, 2019 12:53 pm

Hi,
I had four of these, but have lost 3 , but i can't find replacements. Does anyone know what they are called or where I can find them? I have tried tie down, luggage strap ratchet but they are either plastic or 2.5 to straps. It's about 2ft long and 1cm wide.

I don't have a separate name for them either :( I'm going to be racking my brains now.

I brought something similar a while back and they were called cargo straps.

Those look like 'Cam lock' cargo straps (rather then ratchet cargo straps, which are the dinky version of the massive things truck drivers use)

Looks like the straps used on a Trangia cook set

That's it cam lock cargo straps. Funnily enough i obtained a fair few when a scaffold was being taken down as they had been used to secure the sheeting and the scaffolders just lobbed them down and weren't too scrupulous in picking them up . Only about a foot long but they've served me ok.
