$5 Hard door check straps

I've had my CJ for a couple years now and have always been missing the drivers-side hard door check strap. Out of the $1000's of dollars I've spent online for parts, I've for some reason never ordered a new set of straps, and I've always had an issue with my door swinging open and bending my mirror. I found a set of door "pins", and got the drivers side installed. I was looking at ACE for some webbing to make a strap, and found this-

The two longer straps are about 6" long, just like the original straps. The plastic clip end, slid right onto the pin. I unscrewed the footman loop on the door, and slid the other end underneath it.

I thought the velcro connection would be the weak spot, but it's pinched under the loop, and seems to be holding.

I've had this on for about a week, and haven't had any issues. I haven't had any really strong winds grab the door, but my driveway is very steep, and it'll hold the door, and I've even let it swing open and it stops it.

Nice. I need some straps for my soft 1/2 doors. I'll head down to the local Ace and give them a try.

Pretty cool, thanks for sharing. I wander if you could break the D ring out of if and slide it over the inside stud/pin.

Careful your character's showing

I just ordered a set from 4wd, I believe they $4.99 after a 10% discount, Had I known about the ACE HWD I would have tried them to support a local business.

Yeah, those are nice, and being adjustable would be handy, but like I said, I've just never thought about straps when I've placed orders. And for $5, I thought its not bad.

Mopar- I didn't think about taking the plastic ring off; that would make it fit better. I'll do that today, thanks for the suggestion.
