Like so many great inventions, the Wraptie gear tie was born out of a mix of necessity and ingenuity right here in Australia. It all began with the bike rides that brand co-founder (and inventor) Paul McNeill used to take with his youngest daughter. As any parent can imagine, strapping his child into her seat proved to be no easy task, especially when there was nothing to keep the bike firmly in place. Sure, he could lean the bike against a post or try to secure it to a rack, but that wouldn’t stop it from swaying back and forth as he wrestled with the harnesses and buckles. If only there was some sort of lightweight and adjustable strap that could secure the bike tightly and safely to a post of any size.
Unable to find such a product, Paul came up with the solution himself and then brought it to life by way of a Kickstarter campaign. The result is the Wraptie™ Tie Down Strap. It also happens to be the world’s only multi-function strap, and provides an effortless solution to a range of daily needs.
Bolstered by its patent-pending hook-and-loop fastening system, the Wraptie kisses dangerous hooks or metal buckles goodbye, meaning you can likewise say goodbye to pesky scratches on your bike or car. Culling from the best aspects of bungee cords, rope, and tape, it hosts high tension industrial grade elasticised webbing and safely secures loads in 10 seconds or less. Along similarly seamless lines, the Wraptie straps unique fastening system is so easy to use that it can be operated by anyone using only one hand or with gloves on.
