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!
