P.K this has become more a vendor retail topic and as such I am moving it to the correct section. You will get more exposure in the correct section.

SIMPLE...FUNCTIONAL...AFFORDABLE...  this is the objective we set ourselves when we started out and is illustrated by our solution to flapping straps.

There is not much that irritates me more than trying to thread webbing through a cam buckle and then to stop the end from flapping and fraying.

OUR SOLUTION:  Cut the webbing with a hotknife to seal the end, cut the webbing at an angle to make it easier to feed and put a plastic triglide ( standard on all our webbing) on the strap. Just feed the loose end through it ...problem solved.

Like so !!

When pulled tight it is it not going to be pretty unpractical to try and thread the loose end through that plastic buckle?

Nah boet...we DO try these things before we sell them!
If you are creating a lot of tension you just thread it thru the triglide after the cam buckle, then tension the cam buckle and take up the slack by sliding the triglide away from the buckle.
Easy peasy !!

More often than not some of our best ideas come from client requests for custom items.
The end product is often a collaborative effort to mesh their ideas and / or expectations with our suggestions ito practical application.

This water/ fuel carrier idea is a classic example.
We spent a lot of time refining the original request and came up with this.

OK...so there is a tailpack : 300mm x 30mm x 200mm(ht)
The client wanted 2 x1litre bottle holders on either side of the tailpack.
Our opinion was that this was fine if you needed them all the time(which you don`t), so we wanted the bottle carriers to be removable to make the whole thing more versatile. To achieve this we made up two separate, removable carriers, each capable of holding 2 x 1 litre bottles: on each of the side panels of the tailpack and on the top we put a velcro patch, purely to locate the bottle holders and prevent movement.
Multiple `D` rings provide further fastening points to secure them.

If not used, they are merely removed and a `patch` of velcro with matching fabric prevents it picking up all the crap that so often clogs up uncovered velcro.

Looks like a good idea, well executed  :thumleft:
