A little too short

This carrier for the writing box is a simple, but effective design, and nicely made. If you could use four press studs on each side, it would keep the box secure. Unfortunately, it doesn't fit my box very well- it could do with being 5mm or so longer. I can only do it up on one set of press studs, so unless I can find a way of stretching it means I probably won' be using it much.

The strap is too small for the box. I contacted Galen who said that was intentional and to stretch it. However, it is about an inch short, so that is a lot of stretch to do. They said I could return it at my own cost. Husband is working the leather (which is tough) and who knows, maybe it'll work. I think a better design would be a buckle rather than a snap fastener, so adjustment as natural stretch happens is possible.

Beautiful Box

Box arrived in a timely manner. The craftsmanship was excellent. The leather strap/handle was faultless. If there is any downside, I'd have to say, though the wood was nice, there was no noticeable grain or pattern - that, to me, was very disappointing. I was hoping for a pretty wood as I saw in so many of the advertisements. With that being said. I do love my portable paint box. Thank you.

Nice straps needs one modification.

It really makes it easy to carry the writing box around. Their is one thing. The back of the snaps have sharp edges and if the strap is pulled across the wood it will scratch it
The second picture shows the back of the snaps. The first is where i used contact cement to glue leather pads on the snaps. Moves across the wood smoothly without scratching. Overall its nice to be able to carry the writing box.

Does everything a strap should!

As these other reviews have mentioned, the strap does take some effort to snap together due to the leather's taught-ness around the box. However, its tight fit does a lot to reinforce the security of its handle! When carrying it, I currently don't feel any threat of the box sliding out of its harness, though we'll see how it holds up after a few years of use. That said, at present, it works great and looks very charming!

A perfect fit!

This leather carrying is a perfect fit for my writing box. The leather is a nice thickness, and is held together with sturdy snaps, I don't unsnap it, it slides it on very nicely. It should hold up for many years to come. It makes carrying the writing box more comfortable. I'm really happy I bought it.

Must Have Accessory

If you're getting a writing box, get one of these, especially if you plan to take it anywhere, or... everywhere.

Wonderful Add-On

This is so fun and really adds to the fun-ness feel of the writing box. If you want a cool looking strap to complete the look, get it. It's worth the very agreeable price. Good quality. It was tricky figuring it out the first time, and the leather is tight, but you'll get it and it will loosen.
