Trunk luggage strap dimensions

Just wondering if anyone knows the width and approximate length of the luggage straps for the trunk. The one that hooks into the two brackets.  looking to have one custom made.  thanks

Someone may have the overall dimensions, but in the meantime you can use the search function, fourth item over from "Home" on the forum page. I used "luggage strap" (without the quote marks) and got a single page of hits. No exact dimensions, but there are some close up photos that show how the strap fits into the brackets in the trunk that should give you some idea.

According to the info from the German site, these are 25mm wide, 2.5mm thick. One is aprrox. 29.5cm and the other one is 78cm long.
Do you have the pins / hardware?

Could that be determined by measuring the brackets/anchors?

Ron,
See attached. Again, borrowed from the German forum.
Let me know if you find someone who can make the straps. (PM me) I am interested too. I can make to pins.

This is easy enough to reproduce and there are plenty of leather workers who can do this.

If we can get some more accurate measurements, leather color, etc. we can put out RFQs.

I bought a replacement shoulder strap for laptop bag in natural leather from Gusti leather, it is perfect as luggage strap for our cars.
