Default Team FastEddy "Clip-N-Carry" Baja Carrying Strap


team fasteddy “Clip-N-Carry” Baja Carrying Strap

This is one of those products that you bong yourself on the head thinking “why didn’t I think of that".

All of us that own a Baja know how cumbersome it can be to carry along with your other gear to your bashing spot of choice. Not always are you able to park right next to where you want to be. Wouldn’t it be nice to have some sort of method of comfortably carrying your Baja with one hand so you can use your other hand to carry something else?

team fasteddy has the answer, the Clip-N-Carry Baja carrying strap.

Simply clip one end it to the front suspension, clip it to other end to the rear suspension, adjust it tight and you’re done. It is best to attach the clips on the fuel tank side if your tank is filled with fuel. This way fuel doesn't drip out of the vent hole in the cap.

Now just pick your Baja up by the handle and carry it like a suitcase. I found it to be quite comfortable and easy to carry.

This is one product that every Baja owner should have. Once you try it, you will wonder how you ever got a long without it.

Features

-Heavy duty nylon strap
-High quality rubber handle
-Annodized aluminum caribiners

The Ups
-Simple to install and remove
-Handle is comfortable

The downs
-Only comes in black

Where to get it

-The Team FastEddy “Clip-N-Carry” Baja Strap can be purchased from www.davesmotors.com, www.teamgonads.com and other retailers that sell Team FastEddy products

After seeing this I used a piece of rope to see how it feels to carry the 5b in this manner. I found it to be quite comfortable and easy to transport. A lot easier than carrying it by the roof place since you can hold it closer to your body. I will definitely be getting one of these.

Do you have a direct product link for either ddm or tgn? I've searched both sites and couldn't find it listed.

Here you go....

Note that is a photo of a previous prototype unit. There were several issues with this one such as stretching of the strap material that can be seen. The production units that are going out to the distributors this week are much "BEEFIER" then what is shown here.

It is a heavy duty woven nylon strap and the entire assembly is custom made for this application.

Believe it or not, it took close to 8 months and 5 revisions from our original design to get it right. The photo above is actually 2 revisions old. The final design is much beefier then the one seen in the photo above.

The strap was designed from the ground up for the Baja.
