Nonslip travel shoulder strap stays put!
Your hunt for the ultimate, heavy-duty, nonslip padded shoulder luggage strap is over. The Claw's padding is made from a soft, pliable, durable, polymer-based rubber. Resistant to sun fading, and flexible to 40 degrees below zero, make it an ideal choice for traveling the world over.
The unique clenching action (wet or dry, warm or cold) won't slide off your shoulder and holds firmly to all fabrics, even slick silk, nylon, patent leather or satin. Fully adjustable from 38" to 54" long, The Claw features massive swivel spring-loaded stainless steel clasps, the "Claws" that will hold onto any bag strap rings till Kingdom come (and gone). The Claw will not leave black marks on your clothing and is resistant to most chemicals.
The 1" wide nylon webbing is molded directly into the 5/16" thick rubber shoulder pad. This makes The Claw extremely strong and flexible. In fact, it's rated at a tensile strength of 868-980 lbs! Easily detaches to slip inside your bag for checked travel. Widening at the shoulder apex to 2 inches in width and with 13 inches length of padding, this is the replacement bag strap recommended by famous carry-on Onebag.com travel blogger Doug Dyment.

The strap and hardware are very strong and appear to be well made. I bought it to attach to a computer bag that was a handle and wheels, but no shoulder strap. My only issue is that I think Red Oxx should sell the D-Rings that they use on their own bags for situations like mine. I had to spend some time trying to source a D-Ring from another company and it is not as good as the one that Red Oxx uses. Otherwise my rating would have been a 5.

Bought extra strap to use on my daily briefcase. No more sliding off!

This executes extremely well. Slipping straps as a traveler makes movement around airports cumbersome. I would suggest that the nylon strap be 1.5x wider. It has nothing to do with function but more to do with personal preference.
So good I had to replace it

Just about the best strap I've ever had on any bag -- durable, slip proof, comfortable and brilliant with those 360 rotating clips.
I can't really blame the person who "helped themselves" to the one that came with my Air Boss. Just thankful that I could easily (and quickly) get a replacement, which I now keep locked inside the bag when not in use. I've also used it with other bags on the rare occasion that I leave the Air Boss at home.
Great strap, different hardware...
By Torontoboy, Philly, May 3, 2014
Love the strap, wasn't so keen on the heavy hardware. Removed the metal, went with Duraflex snaps and tri-glides. Now a great strap that is lightweight, which is the goal of most one-bag types.
Great performing accessory
By Rich, San Francisco, Ca, May 1, 2014
"Slide-ability" of the pad along the strap would make it a great accessory for items and other over-the-shoulder pieces.
By Jeff Olin, Portland, OR, February 27, 2014
I use this strap on my heavy sailing gear bag. Works perfect when walking up & down sloped gangways. Keeps your bag securely at side without slipping. Highly recommend, excellent quality & great value.
By Gronkster, NY, February 27, 2014
Very well made; sturdy and comfortable. Strap stays on shoulder without slipping. Nice swivel snaps. Just the thing I needed to carry heavy stadium seats to sporting events.

Many of the places I travel checking luggage is not a smart option so I travel with a briefcase and a duffel style carry on. I do not like roll a boards because of the inconsistency of overhead space.
I have always had difficulty with my shoulder straps slipping but put up with it because they were heavy duty and I travel maybe a little heavier (about 20 lbs) then I should but I go to places where I need to bring my office with me .
Well finally the shoulder strap for my briefcase broke after a about 6 years and I searched for a replacement that was suitable. Not an easy task. I was ready to have a custom made strap when I came across Redoxx and the Claw Shoulder Strap.
I took a chance and bought 2 straps because I like to be balanced and was intrigued by the "Claw".
This was perhaps one of the best travel decisions I have ever made. Maneuvering at airports and on flights has become much easier and I have almost no trouble finding overhead space.
The most important thing, however, is that not only are these shoulder straps extremely comfortable and strong but THEY DO NOT SLIP OF YOUR SHOULDER !!!

I bought this strap because I travel a lot and often found myself with a backpack, Pelican case, and my messenger-style briefcase which was constantly falling off my shoulder. When you're carrying all that stuff it's a pain to have to constantly adjust a shoulder strap. I looked at a lot of straps before deciding on this one.
The strap does exactly what it's supposed to do - stay put. It's so grippy that I think it would take your shirt off before it slipped.
My only complaints are that it's too short (I'm tall and like my shoulder bag to be lower), the strap is a bit thin and the hardware would look better in black or brushed metal.
Additionally their customer service is very responsive. When I placed the item in my cart the shipping was more than the item, so I contacted them and arranged for a cheaper shipping method.

Fantastically sticky, strong, well-made. Love it. Bought it as a replacement strap for my Airboss, which went missing somewhere between Berlin and North Carolina. Will buy another for a different bag because it's so good.
By Greg, Ottawa, November 21, 2013
I bought an Air Boss bag and love everything about it. I like the claw shoulder strap so much I bought another one for my briefcase. Now when I am passing through security or boarding I can easily and securely stack the two shoulder straps on one shoulder and have the other hand completely free to handle documents. Brilliant!

We purchased one of these for use on power tools to replace the lame ones they came with. There pads are wider to reduce dig into operators shoulder which happens after hours of weed whacking. We found these simple for new people to adjust, the pads don’t slip and dig in less, plus are very well built. We liked them so well for operating tools we purchase have since purchased three.
By Luis, Texas, October 24, 2013
Doesn't slip and very rugged and very well built. However, the fastners should be made of matte steel versus nickel plated metal as the nickel will chip over time and extended use.
By Alan, Kathleen, GA, October 18, 2013
Love the strap. I always remove it I'm checking luggage so I was disappointed when I got to Nova Scotia on a business trip and the strap and some other things were missing out of the side pocket on my Boss. I immediately called Red Oxx and the new one was waiting when I returned home. Can't travel without the Boss or the strap.
By Bruce Steigner, Louisiana, September 12, 2013
I have bee frustrated by many bag shoulder straps. I carry a fairly heavy laptop messenger bag, and it would never stay on my shoulder, especially if kneeling or bending. The Claw holds on to the point of pulling your shirt. An excellent product. I had planned to try several other heavy bag /TV equipment straps but The Claw makes that unnecessary. Buy one. You'll like it.
PS: the only addition I could think of would be a brown or mahogany color choice for brown or tan bags.
By Benjamin, Boston, MA, July 29, 2013
In brief, it evenly distributes weight, it doesn't twist or dig into your arm, the clips are indestructible, and you can stand at approximately a forty-five degree angle without it sliding off your shoulder.
By Keith, Honolulu, July 10, 2013
I was really impressed by this strap that came with my Gator; so much that I decided to get one for my Standard Issue. Thought the strap that came with that bag was good, but it can't compare to this. The other one slips off my shoulder almost immediately - totally unlike the amazing grip of this one. I show this strap to people at work and they can't believe it. Thanks, Red Oxx for producing such an exceptional product!
By Shelley, Hudson Valley, NY, June 16, 2013
I may have given up carrying my Sky Train on this trip, but it wasn't because this puppy was uncomfortable or slippery. To the contrary, it was super-grippy and quite comfortable. If your product doesn't have the Claw as part of the price, just buy one.
By Mark, Nebraska, May 23, 2013
Just bought the 3rd of these straps for various bags I have as replacement and it works as great as the others. I'm very happy with the "no-slip" shoulder pad and the heavy duty hardware. Price extremely reasonable and they work the best in my experience.
