Jacklines

full-jacklineJacklines are now available from Westpac. ISAF and US Sailing specify webbing that has a 4500 pound breaking strength. We are using webbing with a 9800 pound breaking strength and the complete jackline has a breaking strength in excess of 5000 pounds.

one-end-under-loadThe above image was taken with over 5000 pounds of pull on the test sample and there was no damage to the stitching or webbing. After considerable research and testing we have found that using a bar-tack stitching pattern with a reinforcing piece inside the joint provided the best strength for this application. We did test the “double W” stitching pattern commonly used on slings (and some off the shelf jacklines) and found it failed below 5000 pounds.

5000-pound-pullAll jacklines are made to order. The standard model has a sewn eye in each end, a large one for the forward attachment point and a smaller one on the aft end so that you can have a lashing to adjust the tension of the jackline. If measuring your vessel is not practical we can also provide jacklines with the forward sewn eye and no eye on the aft end. One can use cleats in the stern of the vessel to attach the webbing which will provide an acceptable connection (although not quite as handy).

They are constructed from 1″ polyester webbing  treated with NanoSphere® technology which provides for longer life due to its dirt repelling properties. While we sell this webbing by the foot it does require a heavy duty industrial sewing machine to properly stitch.

If you need further information or wish to place an order, call Rollie at (253) 627-6000. There is also more information at http://westpacmarine.com

Testing:
We tested all of our samples between a large tree and a loaded dump truck (fortunately we have both). In line was a 10,000 pound hydraulic ram and a load cell. The hydraulic ram did not provide enough length of pull to get all of the slack out of the system and then pull for the actual test. Using the dump truck allowed us to pre load the setup and then use the ram to bring it up to our desired tension. The 10,000 pound digital load cell provided us with a quick and accurate way to measure the strain from a safe distance. This is why you see pine needles in the photos.

 

 

 

 

Ratchet straps at work

ratchet-strap-2When we need to securely fasten something we use a ratchet strap. Here is a small cylinder being internally cleaned. It needs to be held on to our tumbler and the best way to do that is with a 1″ ratchet strap.

ratchet-strap-1As you can see here we are able to tumble two of these cylinders on each side of our device. The 1″ size is perfect but on larger cylinders we use the 2″ version for additional strength.

The ratchet buckles we have used are stainless steel (being a marine oriented business we have plenty of stainless hardware around) which have great corrosion resistance. The webbing is our heavy weight nylon. We actually want a bit of stretch in this application to really hold the cylinders in place.

 

 

Brass buckled web belts

We had these at the Seattle Boat Show and now they are available online.

The solid brass, military style buckle and tip, were found in the back of a warehouse. Amazingly they were made in the U.S.A. and they are in pristine condition. Coupled with 48″ of black heavyweight 1¼” nylon webbing, you have a belt that will last for years.

You can order yours now to either be shipped or for pick up here in Tacoma. When we run out of buckles, these will be gone. The shelf in the warehouse where I found them is now empty.

Need a longer webbing length (they are easy to shorten)? Just give me a call at (253) 627-6000 and I will get you set up.

Seattle Boatshow 2015 #1- Belt Buckles

The 2015 Seattle Boat Show is about a week away and we are busy getting ready. A couple of days ago I stopped by one of our suppliers to pick up some last minute items. When I was getting ready to leave he told me to wait, he had found a box of solid brass military style belt buckles.

buckle-frontThese were not some import but made in America (quite a while ago judging from the dust on the box and the way they were packaged). Coupled with some 1-¼” black nylon webbing and you have a great belt.

buckle-backWe will have these in our booth 2122 on the Concourse Level along with webbing, buckles and a sewing machine to custom make straps right at the show.

Holiday gifts for the sports fan

Why does polypropylene webbing come in so many colors? It is so you can have straps that show your support for your favorite team. Here at work we have problems with Dawgs and Cougs so we have to have webbing to meet their needs.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

There are plenty more colors to choose from, check out our polypropylene webbing page. We can make straps to your specifications or sell you all the components to make your own. Shipping is only $6.00 using Priority Mail and the post office provides really quick service, normally 2 or 3 days depending on your location.

If you don’t see the color you need, give me a call at (253) 627-6000. There are products I stock that have yet to make it to my web site.

How to identify your side release buckle

If you have a strap with a broken buckle, how do you figure out what it is so you can get a new one? The first step is to figure out the width of your webbing. Standard sizes are 1/2″, 3/4″, 1″, 1-1/2″ and 2″ and as you can see from the photos below, these are the nominal widths of the webbing:

1 inch
1 inch
1-1/2 inch
1-1/2 inch
2 inch
2 inch

Once you have figured out the width, the next step is to find the manufacturer of your buckle. The good news is that most buckles have the brand/manufacturer molded in to the back side of the female half of the buckle:

American Cord and Webbing
American Cord and Webbing
Fastex
Fastex
National
National

The final step is to find which model buckle you have. I sell American Cord & Webbing’s products and they make at least two different side release buckles for each web width. The bad news is the parts are NOT interchangable.

BSR style
BSR style
CSR style
CSR style

Above are two ACW buckles, the top one is the BSR style which is a bit more rectangular, the bottom is the newer CSR style which is more “contoured”, hence the ‘C’ in the product name. You can also see that the bottom buckle has the mart number molded in to the right hand side making it a bit easier to identify. In many of the other pictures you will notice that the part number has been molded in, we all have issues keeping things straight.

Is there anything we have missed, of course. Buckles can be made from different materials. Most of what I sell are Acetal which is a good all around product. Nylon is also used, some buckles are made to resist higher temperatures (fireman’s gear) and others are designed to break at a specific load (pet collars). Most of the inquiries I get are to replace a buckle on a back pack, stroller or piece of luggage where the standard Acetal material will work just fine.

Reviewing the steps:

  1. Measure the width of your webbing.
  2. Identify the brand.
  3. Figure out the model. Here looking at my online page on buckles might be a real help.
  4. Place your order which can be done from my buckle page. Your new buckle(s) will be in the mail in 2-3 days.

Cord Hangers

Cord Hanger
Cord Hanger

Summer is over and it’s time to clean up the mess from all of our projects. Several extension cords we on the floor just waiting to be tripped over so I grabbed a hose hanger strap and repurposed it to be a cord hanger. Now we can safely walk across the garage without being attacked.

This is just another example of the usefulness of straps around the house. If you have cords (or hoses) to hang, just give me a call at (800) 343-5826 and I can build something that will solve the problem.

The strap in the picture is made using 1″ black polypropylene webbing, a side release buckle and D-ring. Not shown but the end of the webbing is folded over and bar tacked so that it can not unthread from the buckle.
