Here's the Emergency strap I made...
I used some of the extra webbing I had left over for the Bimini. I wanted to make a simple, works-every-time, release in case of emergency.
After measuring, I sewed both sides of the straps and burned the ends. Yes my sewing skills are fleating...lol!
In the middle of the strap I have about 2" doubled over and sewn with one thread. This will break when pulled and give me the extra length to pull the end of the strap which is sewn into sunpad edge.
Here is the Strap, which i can access by cutting a few threads...
I have subsequently colored the white thread black.
I have more webbing available if anyone wants some... PM me
I do however, like the sun-pad latches I have seen on this thread. It does take too long when on the water and people want to get into the cooler back there...
