How to Apply Composite Cord Strapping

Written by  Super User

Applying composite cord strapping is fast and easy when using the correct technique. A common mistake is to pull both ends of strap to cinch down strapping.  Pulling both tails creates far too much friction at the strap buckle. Likewise, pulling all the slack through the tight s-curve of the buckle can also create too much drag.

A simple solution is to pretension by pulling the loop towards yourself in the same motion as you thread it over the front leg of the buckle –and prior to pulling the tail. this reduces resistance in the s-curve of the buckle.

Redback composite cord strapping is thicker and consequently more durable than competing composite cord strap products, so reducing drag during pretension is very helpful. This video demonstrates the correct methodology to apply Redback composite cord strapping.
