Lifetime Cost Reduction

The Safer Strap™ impacts department budgets by reducing repeated replacement costs.  A zero stretch design means decreased stock replacement given the Safer Strap’s 1000lb break strength and a buckle that endures up to 200lb of buckle pull. SaferStraps offers the only Field Cleanable Radio strap on the market that allows for an instant return to service and elimination for a strap swap program.
