How to Fix Your Broken Sleeping Bag Case Clip

Two Methods:Using a Hair ClipTying the Tie

Just as you were packing up your sleeping bag, the sliding clip just decided to break! Now whenever you try to pack your sleeping bag the case is all loose. Don't despair; you can fix it.

Method 1
Using a Hair Clip

  1. 1
    Forget about the other broken clip. Undo the straps and slide the clip off! Retie the straps
  2. 2
    Pull the straps tight so the fabric is all bunched up at the top.
  3. 3
    Take a small sturdy hair clip with teeth and snap that on the 2 straps.
  4. 4
    Pull the straps to make sure the clip is holding on tight to those straps.
  5. 5
    Use your sleeping bag.

Method 2
Tying the Tie

  1. 1
    Take off the broken clip by untying the ends of the straps and sliding the clip off and retying the ends!
  2. 2
    Place the opening of the bag facing towards you. Take the two straps and tie them in a simple knot but not sliding one of the straps through all the way creating a loop. Pull tight.
  3. 3
    Cross the single strap in front of the loop and pull it through from behind. Don't pull it all the way creating a second loop. Remember the straps still should be tied together at this point so it should be impossible to pull the straps all the way through.
  4. 4
    For an easy way to take the knot out. Make sure the opening of the bag is facing you and just pull the left strap and then pull both!
