Introduction: Adjustable Guitar Strap From Bike Inner Tube
Make an adjustable guitar strap in minutes!
Step 1: Materials
- Inner Tube
- Duct Table
- 1” Grommets with pegs (as many as you want adjustments)
- Grommet setter
- Rubber Mallet
- Sharp cutting blade
Step 2: Cut Tube
Standard guitar strap lengths range from 37 - 52 inches. This project works best creating a strap +/- 5 inches from length of tube.
Retain scrap pieces of tube for a later step.
Step 3: Tape Ends
Step 4: Grommet Placement
Place grommets and press down hard enough to create indentations.
Step 5: Score Indentations
Cut tube at indentations.
Retaining the rubber in the middle of the grommet, rather than punching it out, will help keep the strap in place.
Step 6: Pound Grommet
Step 7: Cover Back
Glue extra pieces of tubing on the back of the strap.
This adds strength, keeps metal from scraping the guitar and just makes it look nicer all around.
Step 8: Button Hole
Cut thin slit in the middle of the grommet. Just a touch smaller than the button.
Step 9: Attach Strap to Front and Back...
