Made of soft comfortable American raised Bison leather in the USA
I am really excited about adding the Lakota Leather Banjo Straps to BanjoTeacher.com.
These made in the USA soft leather banjo straps with the "Cradle" design are made of bison leather and arrive already soft and broken in. They have a really nice padded shoulder with the thin part being what shows which is an excellent design. The straps come in both cradle and standard and are safe and very comfortable. The cradle straps attach with Chicago screws which is a much better method in my opinion than using the leather string like all other cradle straps I've ever seen. I would recommend either the cradle design or the standard strap, both are comfortable, American leather which lasts forever and the straps are money back satisfaction guaranteed at BanjoTeacher.com" Ross Nickerson
Lakota Leathers banjo straps are unique.
Our cradle straps feature a single "tail" section that completely encircles your banjo's pot assembly. making it a supporting safe design. Two Chicago screws are used to secure the tail section to the main body of the strap.
All Lakota Leathers banjo straps are made from Bison (American Buffalo) hide.
Straps are 100% guaranteed to be the softest, most comfortable strap you have ever tried or your money back, no questions asked!
Whichever strap you choose, Lakota Leathers is sure to please!
Important note about Cradle Straps
The cradle strap is for bluegrass banjos that have a one piece flange.
The flange is what you tighten the head nuts against. These are banjos like the
BG250F or OB250. If you have an open back banjo with the indidvidual shoe and bracket system or a banjo like the CC100R I recommend the Non Cradle Strap.
The Non- cradle works for one piece flange bluegrass banjos too.
Lakota Banjo straps are also available in a non-cradle design.

Lakota Banjo Strap Attachment
On the Lakato straps, the width of the leather that attaches around the head tightening bracket is 3/4ths of an inch.
