How to Tighten a Nylon Backpack Grip so the Strap Through the Buckle Won't Slip


Safety is the number one concern while backpacking. You must ensure that your backpack is correctly buckled and fastened to prevent injury while hiking. Most backpacks come with the straps already safely attached. Beyond setting up the straps correctly, the backpack itself must be in good working order. Check for wear and tear, holes, broken pieces and malfunctioning zippers. You can easily learn the technique used to secure the straps -- you should memorize it before beginning your trip.

Tips & Warnings

  • If the strap loosens after being tightened, you might need to replace the straps, also called webbing.
  • Always take extra buckles and straps in case a part of the bag breaks while on the trip.
