Dutch Double Top Strap
When you don’t want to bend over to hook and unhook a Side strap, or you want the added security of crossing straps (both at once), this is an excellent way to go. The plastic end takes a seemingly simple route around one end of the rack, and stays there until you undo it. The metal-loop end hooks and unhooks the rack at the opposite end. Don’t wrestle with this one versus the other one. We’re pricing them so low you can get both, and if you have a couple of rear racks on a couple of bikes, try both and see what you prefer…but basically, they both work great, and our Dutch cousins say the elastic holds up for ten years. In Tucson, we’d say five. Cheap per year either way! Made in Holland.
