Mmmm while not condoning the use of tywraps as a bodge the packet I happen to have in my desk at the moment states

colour : Black
width : 4.7mm
material : 6/6 nylon
Length : 310mm
Tensile strength : 220Nm

I'd guess that while I wouldnt personally want to do this and he has used 4 tywraps from what I can see its unlikely that the weight in the pertol tank + petrol will exceed the capacity of the tywraps used ... I have always thought of tywraps more as a snap strength or stretch strength rather than "tensile" .... but it does appear that they should cope....

Why is it the older I get .... the better I think I was ?
