    Does anyone have a good source for the strap adjusters for the backpack? I looked at pacifictrimming.com and only saw smooth metal sliders in size 1 1/2 inch. I found plastic ones at Joann.com that look like they might have a little more grip, but only in size 1 inch.

    I found black plastic ones at Hancock Fabrics.

    Have you got a leather shop near you? I found mine there and they were only 50c each and they also had the larger ones for the messenger bag very cheaply as well.

    Or cut up a salvaged bag?

    I ordered mine from Strapworks: http://www.strapworks.com/Plastic_Slides_p/ps.htm

    I had to use strap works as well, as I could only find 1″ ones locally. They have good prices so I ordered several sets in case I wanted them in the future. I found the shipping to be quick too.

    I used the vendor “SewingSupplies” on Etsy, and was really pleased with the quality:

    I also usually use etsy for this kind of thing. Way cheaper than my local big box shop with more selection and I like that often you can find a small business to support

    i just wanted to say this so that anyone buying from this company knows a little more.

    i had a hard time finding 1 1/2 inch strap adjusters locally but was on a deadline so i really didn’t want to wait long for shipping.

    i ordered from strapworks.com like this forum said to do and i was so please.

    they have a large selection and great prices. i think the same strap adjusters at joann (for two adjusters) was like $3-$4. I paid $0.88 a piece for the ones I got and they look sturdier.

    order date to deliver date was 4 days!!! very fast in my opinion compared to a lot of companies i’ve dealt with.

    great suggestion SarahB 🙂
