Not fishnet stockings, but netting for actual fish, direct from the U.S. Army (you'd think Navy, wouldn't you?) in olive drab. It's a survival thing. You get a 10-foot x 5-foot net made of 3/4" squares individually knotted from twisted cotton/nylon, so the net won't unravel if torn. Might have a slightly musty aroma (but definitely not fishy) that a little sunshine time will fix. Great for maritime-theme decoration, bible-camp plays (filled until breaking, walking-on-water background prop…) or, we suppose, fishing. And perfect if you want to go to a costume party as Poseidon.
We supply the net, you figure out the profit. Material is 48" long x 35-3/4" wide white polypropylene Naltex® extruded netting with a 3/32" mesh. Makes nice, well, nets, as well as filters, fences, see-through bags for boats and whatever your brain can think up. (Our package of (4) is one 4 foot x 35-3/4" long piece.) Longer pieces available upon request.
We wouldn't try to capture 'gators with it, but this 4-ft x 6-ft black nylon, elastic (not-un-bungie-like) cargo net should trap anything else in the back of the pickup, van or kids' bedrooms. Stretches to about 6' x 9', with openings that are 7" square, stretching to maybe a foot, and 16 carabiner-style plastic hooks. Or just hang a couple on a wall for a nice Spiderman effect.
Nice nylon/polyester webbing is heavy-ish, woven with 5/16" squares and coated with a special weather-proofing. We can see it playing a major role in the repair of your back patio chairs, or as a sun-blocking canopy, a DIY hammock or some kind of storage sling. Something summery, anyway. The material comes 4-feet wide and we'll cut you a 3-foot hank. We'll pick from assorted colors.
This would be your standard 1/16" thick tan/pinkish elastic bandage for wrapping around your bum knee, sprained ankle or twisted whatever, if it weren't a super-generous 4" wide and a spectacular 10 feet long! Think of the potential! Our PKG(10) is one 4" x 10' Long piece.
These rubber "straps" were originally made as oil pan seals for a 1957-1975 small block Chevy V8 engine. (Thanks EY) They are 6" long x 3/8" wide x 3/16" thick with a horizontal striation on one side and wider grooves on the other side. The ends are tipped slightly, so they could probably act as tabs to go into slots of some sort. Easily snippable and with myriad uses. All you have to do is think of them.
From whence we know not, but no doubt with
myriad potential uses. You pick the wide yellow-plastic strap material,
33" long x 3-1/4" wide x .047" thick with interlocking tabs and slots
at opposite ends so it will loop, or the narrow yellow-plastic strap
material, 33" long x 1-1/4" wide x .059" thick with rounded ends and (4)
1/2" bores, (2) near the ends and (2) that are 7" in from the ends. You
get a package of (10) straps to make into collars, loops, games…. Great
price for this much, uh, stuff.
These probably-nylon canvas straps are 2" wide and adjustable from 37" to 70" and you get (2), (1) each in neon orange and chartreuse with translucent white snap buckles. Made expressly for wrapping around your luggage for security and ease of carousel-spotting, we think they'd also make nice summery (hip-slung) belts with the right outfit at, say, South Beach or Cannes.
Or tie two on, since you get (2) sets. This black nylon tie-down strap comes in two parts, both 1-5/8" wide with 1" x 1/2" ID mount on one end. The 59" long piece slides into a 1" spring-clip on the 23" long piece, so you end up with an 80" strap. Not rated for capacity, but it's lightweight, so don't use it to tie down your Buick.
