cargo strap sleeves

Hi guys....

use a cargo strap to secure the rear if the rib when in transit. Notice that it is leaving a very slight mark on the lower tube as a result of rubbing. Want to get a pair of sleeves to run the strap through to avoid any damage with prolonged use.

May be using the wrong search terms, but am drawing a blank....has anyone got any advice on where i can buy some /what to use?

Wouldn't be averse to knocking something up myself.....anyone done similar?

Many thanks in anticipation,

Dan

PS am currently having some simple double jockey seats made up that can double as bottleracks with the squabs removed. If they work will post up some piccies in case anyone else wanted something similar. They will be pretty basic aesthetically....function over form. Will make the cushions myself.....with help of previous threads found. Has anyone bought foam /vinyl lately - any recommendations for suppliers?

I bought some from here:

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/10-x-Protector...4.c0.m14.l1262

However they are a snug fit on 50mm webbing, so you would not be able to slide the hook / ratchet through it if you needed to.

I would suggest you would be better off reviewing how you route your straps to avoid the tubes (I'm only a humble SIBber, but I think most RIBbers strap down at the bow eye and transom only), or use carpet offcuts (this is what I do on my SIB).

Cheers

Chris

Dan, Go to your local fire station and ask if they have any scrap 70mm lay flat hose. It is normally Angus Duraline; lined inside with a very tough sheath, cuts easily with a sharp box cutter to give a square edge that does not fray. Non marking and extremely durable. Threading 50mm ratchet strap is easy enough with a brrom handle. The hose is a snug fit and stays in place.
Fire stations often send their hose to a central depot for repairs but there is usually some scrap around that could be yours for a small donation to their next charitable event. Ask for a free smoke alarm whilst you are there ;-)

"Armaflex" pipe insulation works well. So does avoiding the tubes and routing through the towing eyes (if present).

GED....thought of that but they seemed expensive for what they were

Willk....Have tow eyes but unfortunately the trim tabs get in the way for routing of the strap

Think I'll try and get hold of the hose as first option....thanks for all the replies.
