How do you shorten the loop?

Are you unstitching 1 side and re-stitching it?!?

shortening the strap

You finally got to me. I saw all of your pics of the shortened straps and finally got motivated. Ordered rivets and chicago screws and attacked my revgear. Took me about ten minutes after a you tube video of how to remove an already installed rivet. It truely does speed up the bag. I didn't think I would notice a difference but I did. You were so right. Now I have about thirty five more bags to modify. Guess I know what I will be doing in my winter downtime.

I removed one side rivet and the punched a new hole where I wanted it and re riveted it. On some bags it will also take ripping out the stitching if used. The revgear had both stitching and a rivet. Use a small seam ripper for the stitching and you wont damage the strap. Happy shortening.

Thanks Ralph...I have done four of my bags now and see marked improvement in both speed and rebound. No more twisting of the bag on those slightly off center hits. My peanut Lonsdale went from being an ok bag to a great bag. Really looking forward to see what some of my others do after the mod. It will become my winter project. Anyway thanks again for the motivation.

Shortening the strap

Did both my Lonsdale bags. The big one is now a treat to hit. The small one is super. I ordered a clamp for the chicago screws and a carbide bit to drill through the Kevlar reinforcing on some of the straps. Looking forward to making nice clean holes in the kevlar fabric. I completely redid my Hatton. The tongue was in upside down and the strap was lariat length. The bladder would have gone soon with the rough part of the tongue rubbing on it. The winter project is just getting started..Gues I will have to post some before and afters too.

Everlast 4213, with a shortened loop, if you guys try to shorten your loop, it helps to have an awl to mark the loop after you punched your new holes in your bag, once you marked the loop with your awl than again use your leather hole puncher to punch your new holes in your loop, if you don't have a leather hole puncher than make sure when you buy one that it's a high quality leather hole puncher, it's very hard to punch through the loops because of the nylon strap on the inside of the leather wrapping of the loop.

Wow. Really nice job. That's they way some of the older bags came.

I'd love to see a vid of that big leatherneck in action. Fun huge sun of a gun!
