There seems to be a million and one products to secure, tie-up, or tie-down the gear, equipment, or whatever "stuff" we store and haul. And, I have a garage full of these products because I'm a bit of stickler about organization and stuff staying securely where I tied it down. Recently the folks at Voile Straps sent me a variety of their polyurethane straps to try, so I wanted to share what I think about how they work.
Before I dive into performance, I'll cover the highlights of Voile Straps:
Manufactured from UV-resistant polyurethane that is both tough and stretchy.
Strap buckles come in your choice:
Heat treated aluminum that offer increased strength and slimness.
Nylon that is non-marring, non-conductive, and non-reflective.
Your choice of 5 colors and several different lengths, including their XL series (thicker, wider, longer, stronger)
Order 100+ straps, pay a $75.00 plate fee, and they'll put your logo on each strap.
So, how do they work? Unlike other straps that I've used with a pivoting buckle peg & hole system, Voile Straps use a fixed retainer peg with a slight curve to it. Simply slide the end of the strap through the buckle and pull it snug on whatever it is that you're securing. Continue to snug the strap, pulling it over the retainer peg, completing the process by lining up the hole in the strap with the desired amount of tightness. Not only is this process fast & easy, since the straps are stretchy, you can set just the right amount of clamping force.
So far I've used Voile straps on coiled electrical cords, to secure an 8' step ladder on my SUV, to keep the rear seat belt buckles in my Jeep TJ from rattling around on the highway when the top is down, securing my Giant Loop tail bag to a rack, and keeping a rain jacket tightly rolled up in my riding backpack. No question that they are super flexible in their uses, are easy to deploy, and they've held mt stuff exactly where I wanted it.
If you're looking for strong, versatile, easy-to-use, and effective straps, whether you're securing stuff to your bike, keeping your shop organized, or honestly, whatever, I think that Voile straps are a good option.
