Back Street Heroes
The brainchild of a senior emergency nurse who’d seen too many permanent eye injuries caused by bungee cords, Andy Strapz’re
50mm wide, flat-profile, elasticated webbing straps that’re secured with Velcro. They’re significantly stronger than bungees, have no dangerous or damaging hooks or fiddly clips, and come in multiple lengths and configurations, and their flat profile means they won’t cut into the cargo they’re securing, even when pulled tight – the width spreads the pressure evenly. It also means they stay exactly where they’re positioned, and won’t ‘roll off’ or ‘creep’ to the centre of the load, like round profile bungees invariably do.
There are three styles: regular Flat Strapz, Piggyback Strapz (for strapping one item on top of another), and Smart Strapz (for lashing to footpeg hangers and luggage racks), and they come in 750mm (two-and-a-bit feet), 1000mm (three-and-a-bit feet), and 1500mm (five feet) lengths, and prices start from just £20 per pair.
