Shipping Straps

These keep the mold halve together when putting a mold in the press. If the straps are painted orange they will not be easily misplaced. The mold should also have mounting holes in the mold base to store the straps while the mold is in use in the press. This small oversight in the design can cost the molder time looking for the shipping straps when it comes to taking the mold back out of the press.
