    I made these lifting straps a few days ago and made a video on how to use both styles of these nylon lifting straps!

    I also made a set out of old motorcycle tie-down ratchet straps. Thinner strap material, like an oly strap.

    My sew job was total shit, (this^ looks so much better) and they are still holding up.
    Point is, the sewing doesn't have to be perfect.

    Caution: If you buy those type of straps from Rogue, they are not mirror images of each other, you get two of the same side strap.
    Technically incorrect.

    LOL my sewing looks better? I think it looks a little rough...

    But yes, thank you. I didn't make that point in the video but it absolutely doesn't need to be perfect. Just enough to tack it together. It isn't a load bearing stitch.

    Alan's video is where I learned how to stencil my platforms FYI... once I move plate storage onto the rack I plan on using the leftover mats to make the blocks...
