How to Use Straps on BINDERBOARD
Click on the thumbnail photos for a closer look.

Having trouble getting the strap tight around our Binderboard?  These photos should help.

1.  The metal hook (lower end) is open on the inside, ready to hook on to the C-shaped bar of the buckle (upper end).
2.  Place the strap under the Binderboard, and put the hook over the C-bar of the buckle.
3.  Close-up view of hook attached to C-bar.  Top strap is the loose end.  Bottom strap goes around the Binderboard.
4.  Pull the loose end of the strap tight around the board.  Buckle is still open.
5.  Lift the buckle to the left to tighten.
6.  The closed buckle keeps the boards tight.
7.   You can cut off excess strap, if you wish.  After cutting, seal the edge of the strap by running it through a candle flame quickly once or twice.  (You don't have to remove the strap from the board to do this, but it may be easier to do so.)
 
If you still have difficulty closing the strap tightly, contact us , or try our bolts.
