Lakota Leather Banjo Straps - Made in the USA of soft comfortable American raised Bison leather.
Our 'non-cradle' banjo straps were designed for the player who doesn't like a 'cradle' strap. The non cradle straps attach to your banjo by utilizing two 'tail -sections' of bison leather. These two 'tail sections' are 3/4" wide and are at both ends of the main body of the strap.
These individually loop around a single tension hook of your choosing and are secured back to themselves by a Chicago screw (or a piece of leather lace at your request). A lot of folks ask us why they are more expensive than our standard "cradle" strap. The answer is because two 'tail sections' are used when making these straps instead of one.
These straps are made of the same soft luxurious Bison hide as our standard cradle straps and will provide a lifetime of use!

Type of banjo this strap fits
This CRADLE leather Lakota banjo strap works for heavier bluegrass banjos with a flathead tone ring and one piece flange and resonator. It does not fit most open back banjos or lighter weight banjos with resonators that do not have a one piece flange and have a smaller space between the head brackets for the strap to fit into.
For banjos with the smaller space to attach a strap to use this leather banjo strap for open back banjos
