For my awning tie down poles by OldCoot, I'd like to get fancy with the straps. When I kayaked often, we would use ropes on the tops of the kayaks (called deck lines) that had reflective strands in them. When a light was shined on them, they would really light up nicely. I mostly used black, but know that it came in all sorts of colors (red
). You could also get bungee cords with it in. Here's my daughter's boat with black that you can sort of see it "light up":
Does anyone know if there is somewhere that I can buy some inexpensive 1 1/2" ratchet straps with simple hooks on the end that are both orange and reflective?
