Sail Straps?

I have some straps that hold the sail to the boom that say Bartlett Austin on them. I have sent Bartlett e-mail requesting information on them with no results. I do not know what they are called and want to get some more of them and have not been able to find them on the internet sites that handle sailboat items. They are just a strap with a loop in one end. When you wrap the sail and put the strap through the loop it sticks with no additional knot etc. Any information will be appreciated. Thanks

buy 1" wide nylon and sew some up your self. Cheaper and better quality. And you get the length you need.

How does it stick w/o a knot of some sort? Does it have velcro on it?

You can get them on e-bay $10/3 but you can make them better for less...color choice, length, etc...

The twisted loop is a friction fit, and should have a half hitch added for longer/better security.

These were free, and I prefer them to any sort I have seen:
