    Do an advanced search here for JohnSawyer's always helpful posts on mule tape.
    It is an industrial product that comes in mile lengths for use by utilities to pull cable and wires --mules pull -- through conduit. Sometimes it is one-use, but I have the impression that it is often left in place for maintenance purposes. Ideal in being flat and optimized for static load (and not all of the other good things, like handling, knots, etc that rope might be engineered for.)

    I looked into it

    And got some from a member here. Thanks Olzeke!

    My next question is, can I just use water knots to put the loops in the webbing?
    That shouldn't weaken things too much right?

    Everything for my build will get here but the thread. So, I'm thinking I'll put everything together with Water Knots, then when the thread gets here untie it and sew everything......

    Here's an image from another thread about stitch patterns. I like the 100% pattern. It's really easy to do the w's, just forward and reverse angling the webbing a little bit each time. Sharp needles will work better. If you're getting a mess of thread underneath, the thread tension needs to be adjusted tighter.

    Don't know how you would test the breaking strength without the proper equipment. You'll find out if it's poly or nylon if it stretches over night. Nylon will stretch, and for that reason doesn't make the best straps.

    Just stumbled across this thread-------great info----Thanks!
