Flatz Strapz Info

As a senior emergency nurse I hated occy (bungee) straps.  They are one of the top three leading causes of permanent eye injury in Australia. There was no way I’d use them after a few close calls. A eureka moment saw the birth of Andy Strapz.

Imagination is the only limit. Wrap them around an item and an anchor point. Flat Strapz will hold tight without cutting in, sliding off or rolling to the centre. No hooks to take out an eye or scratch and dent your pride and joy. Quick and easy to use.


Some ways to use them

The over and back method.

Slip the strapz under a mounting point, stretch and join on top.
Wrap around the mounting point to shorten.

Rub the tapes for a secure join.

Adjust by wrapping around the mounting point.

The V Method


A variation on the over and back method using a pair of strapz.


Australian Made

Bike Apply a measure of ingenuity, two parts cunning and you will find the best strap system in the world working for you.  

How to choose your size

Place the item where you want it (usually on the rack) and measure around it rack and all.  This is the size you need as the stretch in the strapz provides the overlap.  If you plan to use any of the methods seen above the same applies.  Remember, the stretch in the strap provides the overlap.

Below is a very rough guide to the common sizes and how we use them. Remeber you can't make them longer but you can make them shorter.
