Alternative Uses for Cam Straps

What have people used their cam straps for beside tieing down frames and gear?

I've used them as battery hold down straps for an oversized battery. They are now three years old and still holding up great. old

  • As a belt,
  • In the back of my car to keep stuff from sliding around,
  • Any kind of stuff you'd normally use a bungee for but want to have more certainty it'll be there at the end of the trip.

If you have ever tried to move one of the foam mattress's you know how big of a pain in the ars they are. Just taco the mattress and throw a strap around and it makes it much more maneuverable

My dad used his for holding stuff on his lumber rack for years, those straps go way more work time than they ever did river.

I used one for a belt once when I couldn't find one and I didn't have an ass to hang jeans on.

They're nice for holding a chainsaw to a 4 wheeler rack too.

the loop straps are a must have when shed hunting. they really help keep the load in place and take the wiggle out.
