Introduction: AFFORDABLE DIY STRAP CLAMPS

Picture of AFFORDABLE DIY STRAP CLAMPS

Here's an easy and affordable way to make your own strap clamps for projects. These clamps are great for clamping glued projects.

A pack of 4 ratchet straps will make 4 strap clamps that you can use for strapping glued projects. It works out that the pack of ratchet straps costs the same as a SINGLE strap clamp giving you a huge saving against buying a ready-made strap clamp.

  1. The Smart Straps come in two sections, as you can see from the pics, with hooks on both ends.
  2. In order to make a strap clamp you need to cut off the hooks.
  3. With the hooks removed you can join the two straps using a needle and thread. I place the long strap between to two ends of the short strap and did a repeated running stitch.

Once joined, you can use as a strap clamp that can be tightened to hold together glued sections.
