I am out of 2" silver strapping for X-Wing Pilot ejection harnesses and belts and am just about out of the 1" for the mini flares.

I will probably be putting together a strapping order and since shipping is always so expensive...
if there is any strapping (or Velcro) that anyone needs...
give me a heads up..



Here is the 2" silver strapping for Pilots:

Here is some of their other strapping:

and sew on Velcro:

I always wanted some strapping for the harnesses to have on hand to make for future pilots.
I am feeling much more comfortable with my sewing machine.. These things look very easy to make.

also orange Velcro would be nice to have. I cant find that anywhere..

how much do you normally order?

I figured that each ejection harness uses about 8 feet of strapping..
and each belt uses about 4 feet of strapping....

I have placed several orders in the past and have gone through all of it...
I think that the last time I ordered like 60 feet of the 2" stuff.

The mini-flares use very little of the 1" strapping...but still I have gone through much of that.

Since I don't have a supplier for the roll pin buckles...I am now recommending that folks just buy belts from Custom Props as you get the roll pin buckle already on it...

When I make the belts...all I can use is the large 2" parachute buckles and those dam things are like $7.00 at Joanne's.
and in a way...
there if someone is going to buy pieces from Custom Props...they might as well buy the ejection harness from them too...I would imagine it comes out cheaper in the end.

so...I don't know how much I will order...or if it makes sense to order since I am recommending folks to Custom Props for some of the other pieces.

As far as orange velcro...I did buy some of that on my last strapping order...so if you need some of that...I have it..
The orange they sell is rather "neon"...but it is all that you can find...so if you need some....lmk how much you need and I can give you some of the orange.

Next time you need big parachute clips, go to the hardware store. I get mine at True Value hardware for about $2 each.
