not really a yj question but need help

ok so im using velcro straps for literally everything on my jeep. i found these on ebay and ordered them
eBay - New & used electronics, cars, apparel, collectibles, sporting goods & more at low prices
it has been 3 weeks now and the tracking info shows they are still in china. im tired of waiting on them. does anyone have any idea on where i could purchase some of these at a store front? and ideas would be awesome. thanx in advance!!

What specifically are you using velcro straps on? You could always buy wire loom to cover up wires.

These straps are 11": | 89506 Associated E-Conversion Velcro Battery Straps

as a start the zippers on the rear portion of my roll bar pads have gone belly up...(sport cage not family) so im using them to hold the pads down in place instead of replacing them or going without, and on my safari doors im getting netting to go over them and using straps to hold them on. also looking into making a mesh bikini top and going to use them to hold that on as well

Would zip ties work?

have you contacted the seller to complain?

You might check an office supply type store. I use those type of things in data centers to bundle up network cables.

zip ties would work but im trying to stay away from them since i feel like it would look cheap. i have tried to contact them and have gotten 0 response ive already cancelled my payment through paypal and gave them a warning i was leaving negative feedback.

IIRC harbor freight sells velcro style looking zip ties. I had a whole bunch a while back for baby profing cabinets. Don't know where they all went.
