Some Random thoughts on straps, by Brooklyn John

So, I was having a bit of a think, (It’s a great way to avoid actual work), and I came to the realization that straps ARE the oldest form of attachment/containment device in history. I mean, of course, they didn’t have high tech webbing and hardware like we do now, but animal hide and sinew equate to the same thing! Think about Ötzi, the Ice Man, Kon Tiki and so many more of humanities early achievements. These things were not held together by nails or screws, they were held together Straps and Rope.
So just remember this the next time you need an attachment/containment device… We were here before anything else. We’ve stood the test of time! There is a reason the phrase is ‘Strapping young man’ and not ‘Screwy young man’ (although that can be applied from time to time).
Strapworks… We’ve got history on our side!

It’s the July 4th Weekend, and that set me to thinking about the ‘Made in America’ aspect of Strapworks business. It’s an aspect that we are very proud of and I wanted to explore why. So join me, Brooklyn John, on a journey into American manufacturing.
Also: tell us how YOU feel about ‘Made in America’; whether you are an American or from anywhere else in the world, your opinion matters… so please, leave a comment below.

You don’t think about them until you really, really need one. What are they? Reducing loops, of course. In either Metal or Plastic, reducing loops are one of the best ways to put together two different sizes of webbing (or cordage) in the same project. But that’s not all they do; join your host, Brooklyn John to find out more about these unsung little pieces of hardware.

As Strapworks continues to grow, we are getting attention from all quarters; this week, United States Senator Ron Wyden toured the ‘Global Industrial Plaza’ and had an impromptu Town-Hall meeting with the Strap-workers. The Senator had a great deal to say on “net neutrality”, internet taxation, healthcare and much more.
This meeting should be very informative for all Americans, not just Oregonians.

You see them in big box stores and outlets everywhere: Ratchet and Cam straps that look similar to Strapworks straps… but are they the same? This week, Brooklyn John, will put that idea to the test as he dissects the ‘Mass Market’ ratchet strap and compares it with one of Strapworks own. You will be astounded by what you see.
