USAAF RestrainT Strap
Specialized restraint straps were developed for waist gunners on heavy bombers. These were also used to link QAC harness and packs together should the crewmen be unable to reach his parachute pack in an emergency. These were design to be looped around a length of pipe inside the aircraft, although numerous methods of attachment were devised by crewmen. This little-known item adds the final touches to AAF bomber crew displays.
This reproduction features the correct Type VIII cotton webbing and original snap & link hardware. Pulling down the circular safety washer disengages the claws, releasing the mini D-ring. Heavy 5-cord cotton stitching secures the adjustment adapter. The assembly is complete with all standard specification, date, and inspection stamps. A custom date stamp can be applied for no extra charge.
