Sometimes, here at Strapworks we use very specific methods of measurement… Oh, who are we kidding, we ALWAYS use VERY specific methods of measurement.
How do they differ from the way you would measure stuff around the house?
Watch as Brooklyn John and ‘Professor’ Tom Foster explain the mysteries of measurement here at strapworks.com.

Hey Cosplayers! Do you use Strapworks.com webbing or hardware in your cosplay? You do? Great! Send me a pic of you in costume to brooklynjohn@strapworks.com and we may include it in an upcoming video on the subject. Make sure to define the products that you used that you got from us as well as the name of the character you are cosplaying (that’s my cosplay of Elizabeth from Bioshock Infinite… Just kidding… I shopped that). This is gonna be a lot of fun. Get them in soon because I want to shoot this vid in 3 to 4 weeks.
Thanks:

Getting ready for the Dorm

I bet you really didn’t notice that summer is rapidly slipping away. Here it is, August 1st and before you know it, it’ll be back to school for all those college bounds students and THAT means moving. Moving from home to the dorms… moving stuff from the storage unit to the dorms. Buying huge amounts of ramen noodles at your convenient bulk food store, arranging the packets into a make shift sofa and then slowly eating said sofa over the course of term.
So, how are you going to move all that STUFF!?
May I suggest straps Specifically “Simple Slings”, Cam Straps and Ratchet Straps from, oh, I don’t know… STRAPWORKS.COM!

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.
