Collection Item Summary:

Utility straps are named for their versatility. They are used for holding looped straps and cables in stowage lockers or compartments and for restraining other equipment to the spacecraft structure during the mission. The utility straps are 11.5 inches long with two studs and two sockets positioned so as to form two loops when snapped. One loop can wrap around a piece of equipment and the other loop around structure or attach to structure by the snap.

This strap flew on the Apollo 11 mission in July 1969 and was transferred to the Smithsonian in 1970.
