    Found these in b&q
    Will hold lots of weight so used them to make a temporary pole holder
    3 quid each isn't bad and great for hanging hose and cables etc

    They have a load hanging up in my local b&q where all the ratchet straps and bungees etc are
    I have the smaller size that holds 100lb
    They have some about a 3rd bigger that take 145lb i think for the same price
    3 quid each i am thinking of getting some more to screw into the boot lining to hold squeegees etc

    You could squeeze 2 poles in the bigger ones
    I didn't want to start drilling them into the roof bars until i have tried them for a bit so i have just used 2 cable ties on each
    1 goes through the metal eye and round the roof bar
    The other goes round the bar and strap

    I just got a rush of blood and decided to give the back of the van a tidy after seeing them straps . Opened the doors and thought Nah . But the thing is , a lot of ocd van owners would look in mine and think it's a tip . But I can lay my hands on owt straight away .and there's nowt I don't have ,

    It's not a tip it's disorganised chaos that's the system I use in my van front and back.
