Pretty unhappy with the bottle opener as it only works on the super popular 12oz bottle caps (assuming as I don't have one around), and it marks up the finish pretty bad (no big deal, just a note). But it does look cool.

Okay, add in a flame thrower and I'm in! .. or maybe a built in garrotte, umm asking for a friend..

That's the spirit!
What Seiko is in the pictures for the strap?
I checked your site to order one in a different color, and didn't see a tan option. I really like this design, and the option for black (pvd) hardware. When you add that color, I'll scoop one up. I already have two of your harvest leather ones and really enjoy them. Thanks for making cool straps!

As much as it genuinely blows me away that there are folks who think it would be awesome to be able to open bottles with their watch straps, I hope this drop and Nick do really well. Nick, I still think you should allow us Massdroppers to order whatever color we want, sales would be much higher, but I guess you have to go with the business strategy you think will be most effective. I'd like to add that Nick has some pretty cool non-bottle-opening elastic straps on his website that look reaaly well made and are a much less expensive than Erika's MN strap or straps like them, y'all should check it out

I'm keen, but I wonder won't the strap length be affected by the lug-to-lug width of the watch? Like having a bigger watch would make the strap fit more loosely on my wrist?

The lug-to-lug definitely matters! But the straps are also micro adjustable by design to adapt to the varying lengths of watch cases. If you're in any doubt about your size, go the next quarter size up and you'll have extra leeway in both directions.
A bulky solution in search of a problem. I'll take a one-piece mil-spec band anytime (for under $10).

To each their own! It started as a project just for my own personal fun (gadget fiend here), but then it turned out surprisingly good, and folks became interested in them. And here we are!
just the black? why?

To gauge interest. It requires a lot of capital and logistics to do a multi-color bulk run on my end. All other colors are available on my site!
holdtabdown
That's right, capital and logistics. Very technical. 31 sold so far.
OK, I want one, but I need to know if it'll work on a Samsung Gear S3, or a Fossil Sport. Both watches accept 22mm bands. (Also, does it only come in green? I would like to have a black one.)

OK, great. I ended up purchasing one from the website. Way more customisation options there. Thanks.
Arcmanov
Awesome! That works too. Thank you!
Wish you guys make a version for the apple watch as well...

You're not the first to mention that! It's definitely doable, just haven't gotten around to it yet among other things.
Would this work on a g shock that has adapters. The width is 22mm.

Would you mind linking the model? We'd just have to look at how the particular lugs work.

Hey again, all! I had such a blast with the last drop for the Hook Strap that I thought I'd come back to see how you all like its original predecessor; The Cap Strap. It's basically the same as the Hook Strap from materials to closure style, except this model has a super fancy piece of proprietary hardware that I developed to serve as a bottle opener! So besides the extreme comfort as a watch band, in a pinch, this discreet tool might just save the day, all without ever having to remove your watch; How many watch straps out there can say the same? xD Here's a quick visual tour to help answer some of your questions!

And an animation to illustrate how it works! It's the same principle as the Hook Strap:

If you have any further questions, comments, or concerns, just drop 'em in the comments and I'll try to address them as soon as I can! Thanks, everyone! -Nick

Hey, my wrist is 7.2 inches and I'm not sure if I should go with the 7.5 inch version or the 7.75 inch version. What should I take? Thanks and greetings from Germany!
hyyyyype
Hi there! 7.25" should work just fine. But I'd say if you wear smaller watches, 7.5" would be a good choice.
Is there a sizing guide? No idea which size to get...
MyCatBandit
Just have to measure the circumference of your wrist (aka, wrist size) and match it with the size offered! If you're on the edge of one size, go with the next quarter size up.

Ayyyyyy OP comes thruuuuu
Will it work on a watch with solid lugs like a Bertucci?
Load 2 more comments
Not quite! The hardware is too large to squeeze between the lugs. So these will not work with fixed spring barred watches.
nmankey
Oh yeah, I cut the stitching on the non buckle end of mine to slip it through and re-stitched it. Forgot about that. Not hard to do if you have a heavy needle and thread though.

Yep!
Here we go again, c'mon Nick I thought you were going to give us more than one color next time?

“you claim it's too logistically difficult, which I ridiculed appropriately, “ Your words, not mine, but its ok, no one here exists solely to fulfill your needs.

I guess you're still having trouble. I take it all back, now I see what you're saying Nick, I forget sometimes how challenging it can be dealing with the general public (myself included, for sure!). And I also applaud your restraint, Nick if you're listening! I love your straps on your website, keep up the great work
