2 3/4" accross the Shoulder width, 5/8" (16mm) with wide leather ends to fit most banjo bracket spacings. The strap is adjustable at both ends.


The leather cradle straps are wonderfully secure and safe for your banjo. Since they are made of leather, they will not mar the finish of the banjo as straps that have metal clips can do.

The cradle strap is made up of three pieces of leather. There is a broad 2 inch piece that can be lined in either sheep’s wool or thick, white felt and has a logo on one end and adjustment slots on the other. On each end of this piece you will find 2 long, 5/8” -1/2” wide pieces of leather with eyelet holes and black shoestrings. It is these thinner pieces of leather that will be threaded through the channel formed by the j-bolts/hooks that you will find around the rim of your banjo.

1. Hold the banjo so that the neck is at “12 o’clock”.
2. There is a j-bolt/hook very close to the right side of the neck. Use the j-bolt/hook next to that one to begin strap attachment.
3. Thread the thinner piece of leather attached to the “slotted” end of your strap through this j-bolt/hook and the next three. Just pass them under the channel created by the j-bolts much as you would a belt through the belt loops of a pair of pants.
4. Now, take the other thin piece of leather and begin threading it through the j-bolt/hook on the right side of the tailpiece of your banjo. Yes, this is the SAME side of the banjo pot you have been working on.
5. Thread this piece up through the channels until it reaches the other strap end.
6. Adjust the strap to the proper length by pulling the ends until they meet and you have a comfortable fit around your neck.
7. Join the two thinner ends by threading the black laces through both thin leather pieces using the small eyelet holes provided. Tie them securely. See photo below.
8. Your banjo is now ready to play!

Please note: This strap will work best on Banjo's with round bracket hooks and may not fit on Banjo's with flat bracket hooks.
