Step 5 Heat Vinyl Straps
Boil a pot of water using a hot plate or heat source. Once hot, insert several straps into the boiling water and wait at least five minutes before removing them. Leaving the vinyl straps in the water a little longer will not hurt them.
Note: We recommend that gloves be worn at this time before proceeding.
Using tongs, remove the vinyl strap from the boiling water taking care as the vinyl straps will be very hot. Once removed from the boiling water, the vinyl strap should be noodle-like and flexible.
