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.....

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....

Since I used this Knot again...I figured I'd post more examples.

I used Flat Rib Lacing (Doubled) for a better grip on the Yoke and the Flap handle
The lacing has a wax , which really help make Tight knots.
As I explained earlier in this thread...doing the knot the SAME each time ,makes it twist/spiral...
Alternating back and forth keeps the line/knot straight.
.
Oh, the color was done with a Blue Sharpie Marker... Then wiped off with Lacquer thinner

PS When I attempted to do this knot this time.... I had to come back here and see how it was done again...
It's just Macrame.... But going around tubes and straps can be confusing at the beginning.
