Our take on the Universal Back Strap

by Ken Nail

This metal back strap features multiple mounting holes that make it a perfect for giving extra support to the rear of an aftermarket receiver in certain vehicles. You can also bend this pliable bracket to install tweeters in factory locations, or to help with any other uses your imagination can come up with. Warranty: 30 days.

Extremely Useful

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I used them to mount component tweeters in my 2004 mustang cobra. The stock tweeter was 3.5" so I used the strap to mount the smaller 1.5" tweeter.
Pros:
Handy for a lot of situations
Cons:
None

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Thought I needed one to get my head unit secured because it was gonna need to get a custom install. Turn out I was wrong but I still made use of it by using it to fix my low hanging muffler lol.
Pros:
Can also be used with an Erector set
Cons:
You can't really say much negative over a simple piece of metal...

Can be used for anything

Written By Anonymous, Prospect, CT on Monday, March 11, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Soft metal, can easily be bent / formed to fit any application. I used them for strapping in my headunit as it was a custom fit.
Pros:
Bends easily with pliers and.or vice but strong enough to hold speakers, headunits, or whatever you want.
Cons:
None.

Great For Theft Protection

Written By GeorgeR, Natchez, MS on Monday, October 31, 2011
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
It holds my CD Player from bouncing around.
Pros:
It's good for theft protection.
Cons:
It would have been better if it were longer and had smaller holes, or at least blanks.
