Why use strapping? The best answer lies in it's versatility, as quoted in the ASTM specs: This specification covers flat steel strapping and seals intended for use in closing, reinforcing, bundling articles for shipment, unitizing, palletizing, and bracing for carloading, truckloading, lifting, and lashing. In other words, for just about every application involving getting it from hither to yon, steel strapping excels. It's strong (do'ah!) versatile and can't be 'accidentally' cut.
