Default Velcro Battery Strap?? Anyone make one?

Anyone have any suggestions on a velcro battery strap? I am not a fan of the tape and the Tamiya MREs dont have a battery hold down. Any help would be appreciated.

the end strap holders are of plastic..sometimes the chassis metal bulkhead get in the way for a proper install.. some modifications might be neccessary to make it fit right...

I have a couple extra purple straps.. I will sell one (1)... $10.00 shipped..
priority extra. in anyone is interested PM me..

I emailed another company about them and they have some for sale as well. Here is the link. Inquired about 16 inch length.

I really like the 3Racing ones. Anyone have experience in trying to use them in a Tamiya MRE?

Thanks for starting this thread I was wondering about a velcro battery strap myself. Does anyone know what works best on a T2 007? Also has anyone found 2 small ones for a 1/12th scale T-Bar car?

I use VELCRO straps I found at FRY's Electronics. They came in a 6 pack for like $6.00, and came in various lengths and in both Black and White.

They work pretty decent - and look really similar to ones I used back in the late 80's , early 90's under the name "Pure-Tech"
