Lanyard segmented neck foam

#1

Post by nicholasfmoore » Sun Nov 24, 2019 7:38 pm

Hi all,

I am currently building some fishing lanyards, and i have everything i need except for the segmented neck foam! Do any of you know what it is called, and even better, where i could get this from? I do think it is superior over a single piece of rigid tubing, as it is more flexible.

Thank you all in advance!

All the best

Nick

I've no idea what you're talking about :-). Can you post a picture?

Not sure. But is a closed cell foam so you could probably make some which would look terrible if I did! :laugh:

Google; Strap foam.
Eva round foam.

Also; camera straps, foam straps, sport shops and boating accessoiries.

Cutting up thick hollow foam and stringing it would make for a nice segmented strap;

Thank you all for your help! I have actually found out what they were from, which was a relief. I was going slightly mad trying to find it! For anyone else who is interested in making one, it's from a 'floating glasses strap' and this is the one i have found. Now, i just need to find the foam on it's own, as i don't need the strap!
