    Nice site, Thanks for sharing!

    Like the straps with the double D ring already sewed in. dual purpose, use one for a belt!

    Can I pick up some of this thread at a fabric store? I checked out a local store the other day and the best I found was a 60% nylon 40% polyester thread. Everything else is just polyester.

    Try Jo-Ann Etc. or call around and ask. You want 100% polyester only.
    Gutermann's is a quality brand.

    yeah, i checked out all kinds of tow straps and cinch straps and ratchet straps. and none of them said if they were nylon or poly. its a conspiracy.

    Are you not able or willing to buy online? That would be the easiest way. And Ed Speer's site has everything you need, thread, polypro straps, etc.
