Made up all straps myself; Strapworks.com supplied hardware. Polyester straps are the best to use and Stainless Steel, only way to go for the salt. These cam straps are far superior to standard equipment and for the price they should be. Larger thumb area, better spring and they hold much better. I can tighten the mount even with a fully inflated raft. When removing the mount I only back the straps off an inch or so, quick to put back on. The 'foot pegs' are for canes, $2.00 apiece at Rite Aid. BLUE: you will see from the pictures that a crossbar is missing on my mount compared to yours, made it harder to figure how to rig it. I was going to add a couple small D-rings in back, but the way I did it works. First picture shows that 2 straps are sewn onto the mount and a cam buckle for the center strap is also sewn. I installed 2 1/4" eye bolts in the bracket for the 'top' strap, kind of pulls against the center strap, which has a 2" hook in it to grab the back D-ring. I'll probably add something after I post this.
