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.

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.
