This is an option to buy a pair of NYLON straps only. ( choose long for tall / lifted vehicles)

Leather is not your thing? Do you like colors and texture? Do you wish the van shelf could match your van color scheme? say no more, we have what you need, a collection of colorful Nylon straps for the Vanshelf. super strong, super light, and colorful. 

Make your own shelf, choose your wood, finish it the way you want, make it your own. straps are adjustable in height and will fit most adventure vehicles. You can download the DIY (do-it-yourself) shelf instructions by adding this product to your cart for free - you will receive the instructions by email.

Short straps will fit :

  • VW bus, camper, bays, Vanagon, Syncro, Eurovan etc.
  • Toyota 4 runner, Landcruiser ... 
  • Defender ( 90 , 100 ...)
  • Mitsubishi Delica 
  • Mercedes Metris 
  • Chevy Astro , express
  • Ford Transit, E class ..

Long straps will fit :

  • Mercedes sprinter
  • dodge sprinter
  • Ford Transit 
  • Any vehicle with rain gutters, sliding doors, and certain roof rack. long straps can be cut to size later on. 

The hanging shelf is Perfect for setting up a camping bar, prep food or just lay down your everyday Carry  

The integrated loops provide a way to insert any type of wood stick or metal bar and will allow you to hang magazines, a roll of paper or any creative ideas you might have. (dedicated accessory line and hangers coming soon) 

Once you created your shelf, it will hang thanks to those straps on any rain gutter equipped vehicle (VW campers, transporters, bus, bay window, defenders, Chevy or GMC vans etc), it also hangs on top of any sliding door or any door large enough to support the length of the product, the hooks are nylon covered to prevent any damage to the roof paint, the straps and table have a protective felt layer to prevent any potential scratch on your paint. It's time to upgrade your setup. 

this product is handmade and we always welcome feedback, special orders, or critics, feel free to message us or write a comment in your order. 

(the original Leafted shelf comes with the perfect ratio of size and weight to be able to transport it easily, it features a pass-through under the shelf to secure it from sliding and is covered with a layer of felt to protect your vehicle from micro-scratches or else, the straps will be the only parts that will touch your vehicle but we do recommend to add a layer of protection to whatever piece of wood (or else) you decide to hang on your vehicle if you decide to go this route ) 


the leafted collective.

    Being cool just got easier

    I first came across these straps holding a shelf in the middle of Baja Mexico. In the mornings it was covered in coffee supplies, and in the afternoon covered in limes. I purchased the straps and they hooked around the VW rain guards like a champ. The straps came with instructions for the do-it-yourself shelf and they were super helpful. I had questions prior to the purchase and received immediate responses from SimplerWays customer service. I would definitely recommend shopping here, and I absolutely recommend these straps.
