View Full Version : elastic keepers

hey mel,

first post here, and just a small request - kinda trivial, actually. i'd like to see you guys offer a 12-pack of little 1" elastic keepers to keep the loose straps from flapping around, that we can put on ourselves. i made some myself out of black 1" elastic when experimenting with the side pouches and attaching the bandoleer kit to it, and a waist belt, but it'd look much nicer in OD or the nice camo green that the packs are made out of. i like elastic keepers as opposed to 100mph tape as it's easier to adjust and won't get sticky :-)
can't wait for my marauder.

good idea there MM - in the interim, I have been using electrical tape to lash up them straps... there are a few ;-)

Hey guys, just want to let you know that at this time we are just too busy to make elastic keepers. You can get the elastic keepers through Blackhawk. They sell them in a 10 pack.

MiliaryMoron -

I've used mountain bike innertube cut about half an inch wide (more or less). Been using them for years. Uses are only limited by ones' imagination. /images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif

Take care -

hey mel and buckaroo -
thanks for the suggestions, but the object of my post was for OD or green elastic keepers, not black. i've used inner tube (works great) and also made my own black elastic keepers. blackhawk offers theirs only in black. but i was hoping for green :-)
