Loose Shoulder Straps/ Fixed

Postby planecrazzzy » Sat Feb 04, 2006 2:00 pm

I've seen things that snap on the back of shoulder straps to keep them from sliding off your shoulder....
This is "my" version....I use 14 ft of elec wire for each set ( front & rear ) each one took about 15 minutes to tie the loom
each loom is about 12 in long.....

In this picture you can see more detail....The knot is the kind that you use to tie your shoe....but you incorperate the shoulder strap into the weave....it's not Rocket Science, it's Macrem'e

Very good looking!  I've got to learn to do that.  I'm helping a friend with an Airbike and I think this would be good for his setup.

It's easy...

You just reverse the knot each time......UNLESS you want it to SPIRAL...

But that's a DIFFERENT knot....
