  • Patent number: 5398385
    Abstract: A modular strap assembly for securing cargo or the like to structural members or other suitable securing apparatus on interior or other cargo space of transport vehicles. The strap can be hooked to itself or something else at one end and tightened at the other end so as to hold the cargo securely in place. Being provided with integrally formed elastic members, the strap can absorb shocks or jarring movements, common during transport and can be viewed as a limited travel elastic shock absorber. This will prevent failure of the strap or fittings as well as eliminate damage to the cargo. The strap is designed to be used in compartments with lateral cross members or other interior fixtures or objects in order to tighten the strap into place and prevent movement of the cargo. Nylon webbing or other suitable material which has integrally formed internal pockets is used for the strap.
