A few years ago I found reels of webbing and camlocks on ebay and made up my own straps, just needed someone with a decent sowing machine/strong needles to make the loops, made straps to whatever length I needed. still using them for camping trips, securing push bike onto cycle carrier and general tying down. Much cheaper than your branded straps and just as good.

The very nice people at Manchester BMW gave me 2 for free the new bikes come in the packing cases to hold them down I'd go and ask your local bike dealer .

Are your buckles made from 316 stainless steel and have been stitched expertly at a cost to the camlock buckles..?? Just a thought mate.....

Sorry Flipflopdog but I couldn't tell what the camlocks are made from but there's no sign of corrosion or wear on them and the stitching was done by my daughter with heavy duty cotton and I've not had a failure yet.As I said previously made them different lengths so I don't need to be tying off long lengths of spare strap either.
