Seriously though a pair of ratchet straps from a hardware store are just as good, although hard to find white.
Stainless steel is a must, but I've never seen straps with the loop at one end in a hardware store. The big advantage is the ratchet stays attached to the pushpit, when you release it. Easier to do, but also much less likely to donate one to Neptune.
