Quick Sample Straps

With so many strap styles and options available, we get a ton of requests for sample straps so customers can be confident in their purchase. One way we do this is with our quick sample straps option. A quick sample is a sampling of 4 custom straps made to order for $20.00. The $20.00 charge includes shipping.

Determining What You Need

When we work with a customer, sometimes it's difficult to picture the finished strap over the phone. This leads to a conversation in which we discuss what their strapping intentions are, what design they have in mind and review their options. Once we have a strap style figured out, we determine if they need any specific material for their straps. After that, it’s on to sizing. We figure out what width would work best for their application and then sort out what length the strap should be.

At this point, everyone has a good idea what the strap will look like and how it will function. However, sometimes the strap length can't be determined at the moment or a strap may be particularly complex. In these instances, we like to recommend a quick sample.

Different Sizes And Customization

Sometimes we can make the quick samples with subtle variations. For instance, the lengths on all four straps may be a little different so the customer can pin down a specific length. Or we may send two straps in two different widths. This helps the customer determine the exact strap size they’re looking for and provides more confidence in the product they're receiving.

When straps require sewing or installation of grommets, we often prefer to send samples. A quick sample with some conversion service applied runs for $40.00 instead of the standard $20.00 charge. This is to cover the added expense of labor. We also occasionally charge the $40.00 quick sample price for straps that are over 36” or that are made from stretch loop material. This is because the material cost and labor require the additional expense. All quick sample pricing will be made clear upfront and the sample usually ships within 1 business day.

For additional straps, you can order multiple quick samples.

    I need a variety of samples. We are going to be using them to attach labels to bakers racks. The labels will be moved repeatedly, but they need to stay firmly on the rack.

    Can you recommend anything for me?

    My husband and I are making a portable color guard flag rack out of an old hotel baggage cart. There are at least 20 flag bags each with at least 3 flags or rifle or sabre equipment. One bag can weight about 5 lbs. which means with all the flags on the cart will weight approximately 90 to 120 lbs. We intend to stand the bags upright and lean it against a horizontal pole at the top of the rack and use perhaps your cinch Velcro to hold them together and still for transportation. But I question whether or not the strap will hold 90 to 120 lbs. of equipment from leaning or falling during transportation?

      Hi Eva,
      Thanks for leaving a comment!
      When it comes to the actual hook and loop material itself, the break strength is about 250 lbs. per 2" width.
      That being said, the closure strength between the hook and loop is closer to about 14 lbs. per square inch.
      If the straps are just being used to keep the bags from tipping over, you shouldn't have any issue with using a cinch strap.
      The bulk of the weight will be supported by the cart itself.
      If you have any questions, just give us a call at 800-940-6934.
