Red Rubber Preventer Strap with Bronze Rings in Ends

Does anyone know where I can find a Red Rubber Preventer Strap with Bronze rings in the end. I had one of these which fit over the boom. A block and tackle was snapped in the rings and pulled to a car on the rail. It went overboard when being used by some friends, and now I cannot find another. West Marine carried them unitl 2005 or so. The were originally used in the drilling industry and were called Tong Straps. Thanks.

You can easily have one of these sewn up of neoprene and webbing at a shop that makes wet suits. Depending upon the size of the boat, you can use one or two layers of 1/4" Neoprene wet-suit material.
