BRIDLE STRAPS FOR ALL UPRIGHTS

If your upright piano has the hole below the catcher on the hammer butt stump,
you need the cork ended straps. If you have no extension below the catcher,
and no hole that is about 1/4 inch diameter, you need the metal clip on strap.
The original strap was anchored in the hammer butt in the hole where the catcher
shank was attached to the hammer butt. Simply cut the excess off that is left of
the old strap. You are not going to try to insert the new strap into the hammer
butt hope-- cannot be done.

Bridle Straps-  (Metal clip-on type- 90)                                                                      SH1500             $ 22.50
Bridle Straps-  (Cork end for hole receiving type- 90)                                                 SH6516             $ 18.95

Inserter for cork ended bridle straps- We no longer provide the simple tool
Make one by removing the top off of a carpet tack and embed the blunt end in one
end of a 1/4 inch wood dowel. Push the point into the back end of the cork and
follow the instructions at:
