I want to make a few compression straps for my duvet, etc and wondered if anyone knew where I could but the webbing and those clip thingies?

Thanks

Anne: http://www.sailboats.co.uk/Catalogue~Rwo_Quick_Release_Webbing_Buckle_25mm~p_R3273~c4587.html buckles

But it's much cheaper to use rope and learn some knots!

rather than make some, might something like these be of use?

Winfields stock them. I bought a pair of 1m long webbing straps with the buckles for attaching stuff to a rucksack. They also have the buckles on their own.

I've tried a few searches but I can only find the buckles on their website. They are Gelert and I suspect the webbing was too.

t would be cheaper to buy them ready made. If they are too long, you can always shorten them down and seal the end with a hot knife.

You can buy the straps on a reel, and the buckles here ...

Webbing straps

Much cheaper than buying blister packs of luggage straps.

Keep checking on ebay, that's where I bought a big roll of webbing from one seller, and the buckles from another. They worked out cheaper than any that I could find from a retailer with a google search.

When I was in the UK a couple of years ago I bought a pack of 2 luggage straps (the kind that you put around your suitcase)for 1 at the pound shop. I now use them for exactly that purpose: to tie up my duvet.

I always cut the buckles off ruck sacks and bags when they fall apart and I salvage any bits of webbing that are usable. I keep a big bag of toggles, buckles and all sorts of things!

I bought webbing from the little craft shop in our indoor market.

I find that rubber bands with toothpaste on make a healthy & economic alrernative to chewing gum.

Pound shop or similar discounty place. The straps are wider and the buckles are bigger so maybe better for the force you will put on it by rolling things very tight?

Another vote for poundshop luggage straps, usually 2 per pack they also have a name tag, handy when using a few for different items.  Ours do everything from keeping the cooker together to compressing the sleeping bags.  When we had a larger table the straps were not large enough to go round the table so attached two straps together, that worked a treat and the table legs stopped flapping open when trying to pack them away.

Cheap cheerful and will do the job 17
