Tight is right! This strap plugs into the corners of both the Expedition and lite versions of the Adapter Shade Panel (ASP). Its ¾” webbing and has a MILSPEC male side release buckle on it for easy cinching and a rock-solid setup. At 12’ in length, and with a reinforced stake loop, it is long enough for higher roof heights, taller vehicles, or better pull angles in high winds. Depending on the situation, it is used instead of or in conjunction with the SmartClip Adapter for any attachment situation that arises. It’s all in the details as the bitter end retainer keeps the left-over strap from flapping around while in use.
