So, does anyone know what the official term is for the "keepers"? -- those leather thingies that are narrow loops of leather that keep things like breastplate straps together? My Tucker breastplate's "keeper-thingie" that used to keep the straps together on the piece that runs under the chest & attaches to the cinch has broken & dropped off; plus the similar "thingies" that hold the straps together on the pieces that attach to the saddle on either side are looking questionable. So, I'd like to get new ones -- but what the heck are they called so I can find them to buy online?
if you go to your local western store they usually sell extra leather if they make anything there in the shop i know Western Rawhide sells long strips of it then just cut it and sew it together and if they ever break again you will have extra or if you ride western and have a leather cinch strap i cut a little bit off the sides of that also because it was for roping so it was super thick and to hard to cinch up me being only 13
