    I’ve got a couple Bessey strap clamps. They look nothing like these.

    This strap is great for strapping object to roofs of cars and trucks

    We use a lot of Bessey clamps but for light-duty strap clamps we like the Wolfcraft:

    What I forgot to say was that for heavy-duty applications the Jorgensen 6200 is a good choice:

    FYI

    We have 6 HD Jorgensen 6200 canvas strap clamps that are at least 20 years old. I took a look at replacement cost – and nearly had a coronary – 6 new ones might set us back over $2500 !

    Fred, do I understand you correctly that you have some strap clamps that would cost over $400 *each* to replace?

    What is the strap made out of, gold-plated Kevlar cloth? How in the hell does anyone justify charging that much for a strap clamp? I’m genuinely curious to know why those clamps would be worth anywhere near that amount of money.

    Chris:

    My apologies – I may have been looking at carton prices (6 each for about $460) – see them again here :

    We have 25 footers – maybe $100 apiece would be a modern price – although we may have paid something like that in total for the 6 that we bought 20-25 years ago.
