Title: How to Make an Adjustable Switchback Strap by TIAT (Video Instructions)
Post by: JD~TIAT on May 07, 2010, 05:31:52 AM
Switchback Straps are relatively easy to make. Still
they're useful and they look really cool - two good things
in my book.

To add a little something extra to the strap, I included
instructions for how to make them adjustable.

For those interested in proper names, the adjustable
part of the strap is called a Fisherman's Knot (very
useful for a variety of reasons).
