Leather Strapping, Link Chain & Webbing

Leather Strapping for making BDSM gear

Leather Strapping

The most economical way to purchase leather is by the side. It costs much less per square (one square foot) in this quantity, because you purchase what would otherwise be scrap. If you plan to make a lot of leather gear, I definitely suggest you look at this approach.

However, we're well aware that some people either:
A - won't necessarily make a lot of gear, or aren't sure that they will, or
B - don't want the up front expense (~$150 or so) for a full side of leather.

With this in mind, WWL Hardware offers a selection of precut strap. This is heavy (8-10 ounce) black latigo leather with an attractive, subtle top finish. It's an Indian tan with the characteristic yellow center, so plan on dying your edges.

To keep things simple, we carry a few stock lengths. We chose 2-1/2" for the wider offering, but you can certainly cut it down with a strap cutter or by hand for narrower base straps.

Link Chain

Link Chain

It's been difficult to get good link chain in the past. These are the right weight and size for bondage gear, in our opinion. Although made from steel, this isn't chain you would chain someone down with! It's useful on ball parachutes and other light load applications. Plus, it's great for decorative accents... collar drapes, chain bars, and so on.

Webbing, Polypropylene Webbing

Polypropylene Web Strapping

Webbing can be used in many ways leather can, and is an economical choice with advantages worth considering. Weight and bulk will be lower than a leather equivalent. Webbing can be washed, and is more readily sewn (particularly on home equipment). Most webbing is stronger than leather.

Why polypropylene (often referred to as simply "poly")? It's less expensive for one thing, by a lot. The main commercial drawback vs nylon... it's not nearly as strong. However, at about 600 pound load-bearing capacity per inch of width, poly webbing is plenty strong for the vast majority of BDSM applications.


Webbing, Polypropylene Webbing

Webbing Supplies

Is an assortment of web buckles and strap adjusters for our webbing. There are a number of different webbing buckle styles, but here are the few we think are the most useful in BDSM. Loops, dee rings, and slip locks provide the means to attach webbing to things, attach things to webbing, and adjust webbing. These pieces are all black acetal plastic.
