Product Overview

The Universal Flex Strap by Rino-Tuff is a comfortable bungee trimmer strap with an adjustable shoulder pad that distributes weight evenly over your back and legs. The quick connecting clip makes it easy to attach the strap to any trimmer, blower, or sprayer. The clip houses a built-in trimmer line cutter and a slot with ear plugs. The bungee strap helps extend your reach while the thick shoulder pad absorbs the shock felt while trimming. With less weight on your body, you can trim for a longer amount of time and reduce muscle fatigue. That means cutting more with less strain to get the job done faster, leaving you more time to do the things you want.

  • Reduces strain and muscle fatigue
  • Thick adjustable shoulder pad
  • Quick and easy connecting

This strap makes it so much easier to hold my gas powered string trimmer for long periods. The hook easily attaches to the trimmer and then to the strap. I couldn't figure out why the instructions had information about hearing protection until I noticed the hook holds a pair of earplugs. BONUS! Whoever thought of that was a genius! I always wear big muffs and safety glasses when using power tools, but if I ever forget my muffs, I'll now have a spare pair of ear plugs handy. The adjustable strap reduces the vibration in my arms so I can use the string trimmer for longer periods. The strap also makes it simple to flip the trimmer over to edge garden beds. Glad to have this.

The last time I used my heavy 58 volt trimmer my arms ached for 2 days, so I decided I needed a shoulder strap. This one is the best I could find. The enclosed instruction sheet is mostly warnings, so I found the pictures on the back of the package the most helpful for getting it adjusted. The shoulder strap has a wide range of adjustment. I'm a tall guy and was able to adjust it even a little too long for me. The large hook is easy to connect and disconnect to the metal clip, even with gloves on. The shoulder pad is comfortable but has a tendency to fall off when weight is removed from the strap. Once the trimmer is connected and the shoulder pad is in place the strap comfortably supports the full weight of the trimmer, leaving my hands free for operation and guidance, not lifting. I really like the bungee connection to the trimmer - it allows you to extend your reach a bit when needed and eliminates any shock.

The Flex Strap is such a useful and practical accessory that anyone who does yard work ought to seriously consider getting one. It makes using the trimmer and blower so much easier. No longer do you have to support the weight of the equipment with your arms which causes fatigue and arm strain. With the strap distributing the weight over your body all you have to do now is guide the equipment. In fact, I only use one arm with my blower! And, I've even done some trimming with one hand as well! I plan on putting it to work with my spray tank the next time I have to use it. There are two things you must do right for this to operate at its best. First, wrap the bungee corded hook around the tool at a point where the tool's weight is evenly distributed. Second, put the strap on you and adjust its length so that when you hook the tool onto it, it is at the proper position that you will be using it. This may take a few tries until you get it just right. Once you've done it, you are ready to go to work. Your body is now holding the weight of the tool while your arms simply guide it. When you finish with your trimmer, unwrap the corded hook and then use it with your blower. Yard work is now less work!

When I selected this product I really didn't think much about it or even really look at the description well to see what it was. Figured it was just a simple strap. Boy was I wrong! This is unlike any other trimmer strap I've seen before and I've looked at a few. I'm not easy to impress and I can be very critical but wow... this thing rocks! I have a pretty heavy trimmer and I use it often. I also have a cultivator attachment for it which makes it even heavier. When you're out in the hot sun, after already having mowed your lawn, the last thing you want when you're handling a heavy tool with a fast spinning head or blades and a hot engine right by your arm is to be fatigued and careless. A strap makes the trimmer easier to handle by taking a lot of the weight off your arms and moving it to your shoulder. But you already know that which is why you're reading this in the first place. :) So let's get to the details. I was completely blown away at how incredibly awesome this is. Whoever designed this really knew what they were doing and put a lot of thought into this. Even the packaging is very nice and easy to open by hand. Not a big surprise considering Rino-Tuff has been making trimmer line and attachments for a long time but sill I'm very impressed. First of all it's really easy to use. There are two main parts, the strap and the bungee for the trimmer. There's a nylon web strap that has a foam rubber shoulder protector so it's comfortable. The strap is adjustable and has quick release plastic buckles. There's a metal loop that hooks on to the bungee. There are two button snaps on the shoulder pad if you need to remove the strap from the pad for any reason. I needed to do this because for some reason the metal loop wasn't in a good spot so I had to undo everything on the belt to get it where it would work best for me. Was very easy to do. Instructions were easy to follow and I was able to quickly start using it within minutes. Hook clips on and off the strap easily. Quality of materials appears to be good. I'll come back and make an edit if it all falls apart but it doesn't look like it will. Then there's the bungee that attaches to the trimmer. You just loop it around the trimmer shaft , making sure you don't wrap it around the throttle controls, and pass the hook end of the bungee through the loop and pull tight. Easy to remove and move to a different tool later. Doesn't need any tools to install at all. The bungee gives some bounce to reduce any shocks and allows you good motion. I could get the trimmer into all the positions I usually get it into to handle the various trimming tasks around my yard without a problem and it was so much more enjoyable to use without having to carry all that weight in my hands. Because of the stretch in the bungee cord it doesn't feel like the trimmer is tethered to you and everything feels very natural. Just much lighter. You do need to take some time in the beginning to get it all adjusted properly but that was only a few minutes. And there's more! In the hook on the bungees were some nice surprises. First there's a trimmer line cutter which works well and is right there when you need it. The biggest surprise was there's a little clear case built into the hook. Open up the case and there are two foam ear plugs. Perfect! The earplugs have a noise reduction rating (NRR) of 32dB. I was absolutely blown away but how much I liked the Flex Strap. I didn't receive the delivery until after dark and I was just planning to fit it on the trimmer quickly tonight and test it more later but I was enjoying using this so much I started up my trimmer and ran through everything to try all the different positions I hold the trimmer normally. Had no problem putting the trimmer in the position I hold it to start it either. Put the cultivator attachment on afterwards and that worked out well too. Trimmer was really easy to use with the strap. If by any chance the person or people at Rhino-Tuff that designed the Flex Strap happen to read this.. Awesome job getting all those extras in the strap. Especially the ear plugs.

This strap is a backsaver allowing me to work longer with less 'aftereffects'. It does need tto be adjusted for each different tool head, which is easy. Highly Recommended!
