Double strap tutorial for Eflex (JT strap)

Looked around, but found no tutorial for this mod, while easy to do I still see posts asking about it so I just went ahead and did a write up.

above is the Eflex shown with the double strap, I chose to use a JT strap based on its "butterfly" ends, but KM is the same style so you can use those as well.

This picture shows the butterfly end of the JT strap that you will need to make this work.

when you feed the second strap though make sure you use only one of the strap holes, this will keep the second strap on the top portion of your head(lets it move up), if you feed it through both holes it will be on the same plane as the current strap and somewhat pointless



Uploaded with ImageShack.us

This picture shows the second strap with the "butterfly end" already shoved through the plastic connector of the original strap. Its a tight fit so you will have to use some force. It helps if you pull the original strap down and away from the slot of the connector. Once in the "butterfly end" will keep the second strap in place.

Lastly is a top down view of the second strap already pushed through the slot. its is free to move within the slot but the butterfly end keeps it in the plastic connector, therefore also on your head.


Have fun modding, and feel free to PM me if you have a question. hope this helps.

This is the typical Event strap. right? if so I can not confirm or deny that you can remove the end clip or not, nor can I confirm that it will work once you do remove it(or if you can even remove it) Straps you want to look at are JT straps, KM straps where the ends have a double "loop", so they act like a retainer. If you are thinking that you want to keep it in the empire family, Kee actually owns JT(thats how they were able to make the e-flex in the first place) so in a way you kind of are....heh, hope this helps.

That is the standard end on a JT strap, for the spectra (flex) or elite series and pretty much all of their masks. Thats what those KM straps are meant to be a replacement for.

It doesn't work quite as well, but you can also remove the plastic clip (cut it with some wire cutters or whatever you have around) off of a non JT strap and just shuv the remaining end inside your existing strap clip. In a double strap setup this will probably give you the extra elastic pressure you want, and it isn't a danger that it might pull off since the original strap is still there.

You can also sew the end of a non JT strap to be flattened out like the JT style straps.

I ended up using a standard event replacement strap. I broke the strap out of the ear clips. Then just shoved in strap ends into the eFlex ear clips. It works fine even without the butterfly straps.
