Dumb question, probably

    My older green fastraps are still flexible, easy to rig. My newer red fastraps have gotten stiff and difficult to rig.

    I was wondering if anyone has used fluid film in this situation, and what kind of results you obtained.

    Thanks, if anyone knows.

    is this what you're talking about:confused: http://www.trailerracks.com/fastrap.html

    never even seen a set in person but have used ff on many of my ratchet straps that became hard to use. made every one work like new again:clapping:

    That's it.

    The metal is fine on my red fastraps, but the nylon material has gotten stiff.

    My older green fastraps work fine, must have been pre-treated with something.

    just buy new straps. why soak them grease so everytime to touch them you get it on your hands......

    you got nothin to lose by trying it right? made some of my ratchet straps softer than when they were new. spray emd own lightly, wipe it in and be done. it will repell moisture too. try it on one and if you don't like it get new straps, if you do like it spray the other and instead of buying new straps buy more ff:cool2:
