Attaching ball tips to the end of straps.

Recommended Posts

Good morning guys. I recently bought a early rivet style USMC haversack and it was missing the end tip on the top shelter half strap. I bought a 5/8 ball tip to put on it so I can make it functional only because I could find a square tip one and I didnt want to risk destroying one on one of my parts packs. How do you put these on exactly? There isnt anything anywhere on the internet that I could find about how to put one of these on the right way.

Position on strap,hammer flat or squeeze in a vise. I would do a test run if you have a scrap strap and extra ends.This way you can get the technique down.

Do you hammer or squeeze it somewhat flat before you put the strap into how do you get the strap to take its flat shape back once you roll it to fit in the end? The first time I did it I had a slight gold in the end of the strap where it didnt end flat

Try contacting the seller at info@odcloth.com He may be able to assist you on installation information.

Good luck.
