Sierra Pacific Engineering and Products has added a line of stainless steel footman loops to their product line. A stainless steel footman loop will ensure that no matter what the environment, the loop will not succumb to the elements. A footman loop is a low profile tie down usually used to stop the rotation of a door past a specified point. Usually one loop is attached to the door and one to the wall, then nylon webbing is attached to both. As the door opens the loops draw away from each other until the webbing stops the motion to avoid over rotation of the door. This acts the same way as door stop would to avoid damage to the wall or the handle on the door. The advantage of a footman loop system is that in applications where a protruding object, like a door stop would be disadvantageous like on the outside of an R.V.
