It Straps On!

No, really:


Apparently, some company is devoted to providing... erm... "strap-on" hardware that can affix signage to posts.

So, aside from NOT being able to make stuff like this up, I'd have never seen it from inside a car.

I wonder if that sort of strap setup would work on smaller posts approx 80mm dia

Also where can i find raptor warning signs

"Strap-on" "Strap-off" "The Strapper" :)

I always thought surgically implanted velcro would be better than strap ons when heavy traffic indicated that changing the signs would help with the flow.

Raptor warning sign can be found here.

On a funny side-note, the guy who kick-started the sign-hacking stuff is local, and a good friend of mine.

Every since becoming a full-time cyclist/pedestrian I'm noticing all sorts of oddities.

There's a trailer park adjacent to where I work. In the 11 years I've been here I've never noticed it, but I did when I walked past it.

We have excellent sidewalks with handicap friendly ramps leading to an auto parts store and a self-serve car wash. The retirement home, dental offices, doctor's office, and pharmacy do not. Please explain that one to me.

I am the Web Master for It Straps On, Inc. and I wanted to say thanks for the shout on your Blog. Also in answer to Tacticus about the 80mm sign strapping if he will go to isostainless.com he should find his answer.

I must admit, your company has a unique, entertaining and quite accurate name. Thanks for taking the time to swing by!

Hi, My name is Melody and I am a salesperson at It Straps On, Inc. Oddly enough the owner and I are big into biking. Luckily we live in southeastern Louisiana and have been fortunate enough to ride all winter long. There was one day when it snowed here and we didn't ride. We have had to dodge a lot of dogs lately. Nothing is perfect. Thanks for the blog. (this is my first)
