Strap Tag End - Retainer Bands
I'm not sure what else to call them and please tell me if the subject has come up before.
How to tidy up the plethora of loose strap ends that invariable flap around on our luggage, after we've cinched them down tight.
Several bags I've seen lately incoporate an elasticized fabric band that has the same effect as a watchband tag ring
Use: simply slip the excess stapping under the elastic, folding it in if necessary- to result in a tidy and unobtrusive tag end management solution.
For situations that demand constant strap adjustment, these retaining bands shouldn't be deployed. However, in other circumstances they can really tidy things up in the excess strappage department - preventing the flapping in the wind phenomenon!
