In Reply to: I have a few reservations about spring straps posted by Eric S on April 19, 2005 at 20:36:23:

The springs are 302 Stainless, http://www.mcmaster.com
p/n 3932K54. You run a piece of 2-3 mm nylon line
through the middle to keep from over-stretching
them. I've NEVER heard of someone breaking one.
I was breaking a rubber strap once or twice a year,
in spite of regular inspections.
