When it comes to plastic hardware, loops are most often used as connectors or containers of strapping. Lightweight and versatile, slides are most commonly used as strap adjusters, as well as stops or attachment points. Used with side release buckles, they allow for a fairly large range of sizes in collar, backpacks, belts and other items that often need a quick adjustment and a tight hold. To add to versatility in webbing choices, reducing loops allow you to step up or down in strap size, providing the opportunity to use a more suitable style of webbing where needed. The best attachment point options for plastic hardware include D-Rings, and Triangle Loops, with both also commonly used to make compartmentalized straps.
