holding on for life...

Post by mccomas »

gents, from time to time i do some work for the 75th downrange and every time that i roll with you on an aircraft, everyone snap-links themselves down to the skin of the aircraft. i end up getting ratchet strapped in or just holding on for life (especially in rotary)... i can easily add a length of rope to a snap link and call it a day; but the set-up that i see your folks with looks like it has some type of elastic built into it - it looks convenient. where can i go to buy this? thanks...
