I bought a set of window straps from Langs. I assumed that they would already have the loop on the end where they attach to the window itself. They do not. So what is the best method for installing them ie forming and securing the loop so the window is seated all the way to the top when the strap is pulled all the way up and seated on the door pin.
You will have to stitch the loop in yourself. If I understand your question correctly?
As I recall the loop is permanently attached to the channel so there would be not way to install if the strap had a loop sewn in place. Depending on the year, you might want enough to leave a tail to tuck under the grab handle I think. Tie a piece of string on the channel loop, drop the window down and see what the allowance for fold over needs to be.
On both my 21 coupe and my closed cab truck I made loops of brass the width of the straps. These I riveted to the end of the straps. The rods that go thru these loops are removable to install the straps.
thanks for the info , a new interior is in Elmer's future, had these questions myself...really like the brass loops Jim...classy touch
Try this for some help. I made the channel rod and riveted the loop after setting the length for full close on the last eyelet. It worked out pretty well.
