Important to know: Leather straps are not the same as leather straps. Professionals distinguish between so-called "shock straps" and "hanging straps". What are the differences and what do they have in common? The common ground is quickly explained: All stripper for razors are at least partially made of leather, which also explains the overarching term "leather straps". The differences are a bit more specific, so let's take a closer look:
The simplest hanging straps consist of a single leather strip. At one end a carabiner or an eyelet is attached with the leather straps attached to a hook. At the other end there is a handle, with which you bring the leather strap to the necessary tension to pull off the razor.
Two-piece hanging straps, such as AP Donovan's, consist of a leather strap and an equally-sized fabric strip of sturdy linen or hemp on the back. The fabric side is used when peeling on the leather belt no longer achieves the desired effect. For this purpose, the fabric belt can additionally be treated with abrasive paste. This type of lanyard is also called "Profiriemen".
In a shock strap, the leather strap is stretched on a suitably large board, which eliminates the need to attach and manually tighten the puller belt. In most cases, a handle for better handling of the bumper is attached to one end of the board. If the tension of the leather belt is adjustable by means of a clamping screw, this is called a "tensioning belt". Incidentally, the name "shock strap" is misleading - the razor blade is also pulled on this version of the puller belt and is not pushed.
