Safe, strong, super quick and easy to use, Andy Strapz are a game-changer for attaching luggage to motorbikes. It is the brainchild of a senior emergency nurse, who’d seen too many permanent eye injuries caused by bungee cords. Andy Strapz are 50 mm-wide, flat-profile, elasticated webbing straps, secured with Velcro®.
Their flat profile means they won’t cut into the cargo they’re securing, even when pulled tight — the width spreads the pressure evenly. It also means it stays exactly where it’s positioned and won’t ‘roll off’ or ‘creep’ to the centre of the load like round profile cords invariably do.
Secured along the strap with Velcro®, there are no dangerous or damaging hooks, fiddly and unreliable plastic buckles or clips to break, and no loose ends to flap about in the wind.
Their design also allows quick and easy adjustment by simply wrapping around the anchor point or the load until fully secure — ideal if the load increases or decreases in size en-route.
Significantly stronger than bungee cords • 50 mm wide so they won’t cut into or roll-off cargo • Heavy-duty Velcro® for a strong, safe join • No dangerous or damaging hooks or fiddly clips • Multiple lengths and configurations • Easily adjusted to suit changing loads • They come from a land down under
Each one features a built-in loop for pulling the strap tight and into position, which are big enough to operate with a gloved hand.
Designed and made in Australia, there are three styles of Andy Strapz to choose from; regular Flat Strapz, Piggyback Strapz for strapping one item on top of another and Smart Strapz, designed for lashing to footpeg hangers and luggage racks.
Andy Strapz comes in 750mm, 1000mm and 1500mm lengths, and prices start from just £20, including VAT per pair.
They’re available in the UK from touring accessory specialist www.nippynormans.com.
