I need a couple of single straps that work like suspenders but they
only need to be about 5 inches long. I don't need them joined like
suspenders, just two singles.
Anyone know where to get a pair?
O'Neil to General Hammond:
For the record Sir, I wanted to blow it the hell up.
The ad things that used to come in the mail, and in the Sunday papers,
used to sell things like that (mattress garters?) to keep the corners of
fitted sheets from popping off mattresses.
But for a one-off application, 10 minutes at your local sewing or
camping store will yield the clips and the webbing. If sewing is too
much bother, they even have friction buckles (like a square ring with a
ribbed bar in the middle) to make the loops in the end of the webbing,
which would also make it possible to fine-tune the length.
We could probably make better suggestions if you describe what you are
trying to hold up, and to what.
Probably not adjustable, but you can adjust them by sewing. Get some
of the eleastic with clips on each end used to hold gloves to the
winter coats of little children.
They are probably cheap.
Maybe small non-chain stores have them out of season, (otoh maybe
large stores send them back to the main warehouse out of season.)
And mets is right, the things that hold mattress pads in place, by
cliping two sides at corners.
