Traggestell Strap Replacement Set Tragrahmen
We have made a handful of replacement straps for the Traggestell or Tragrahmen. They are sold as a set which includes one "Buckle" strap and a "LUX" strap. These are the straps that would go from side to side on the frame to hold onto your ammo or whatever you would be carrying. Each frame came with 3 sets of these straps (2 sets would probably be enough for reenactment use). There is documentation of the traggestell being used to carry the 8cm mortar barrel rather than using the barrel sling.
The webbing we found for these is very good; it is the correct weave, a very good color, and strong. The webbing is just a little bit thinner than originals and a little more stiff but they should loosen up with use. We found good hardware for the "lux" style ends and buckle. The rope is actual WWII zeltbahn rope which worked out to be the same size and type that was used on the original straps. The length of the straps may vary from originals you might have. We have several originals and the length varied pretty wildly probably do to wartime manufacturing, and differing levels of use and stretch over the years. Our group bought most of this production run leaving just a few extras. We might make them again in the future but if you need them, buy now; there is no guarantee we will make more.
At the present time, there is no way we can make the other webbing for the traggestell.
