that cord can withstand several hundred KG and is not at all under stress even if you dropped violently your saxophone, you get a spare cord if you want to lengthen the cord or have second thought s after shortening it.

from the FAQ the braking load is 250Kg.

( Incidentally, most people trust straps which materials have never undergone such controls as the materials used by Jazz lab)




“...How secure is the hook? The common available plastic hooks are assembled from multiple parts, this connection can solve or break. Most of the available cast metal hooks are inherently brittle and can break. Hooks made from bare metal have the disadvantage that they have a lot of friction in the attachment of the instrument, which wear out over the time. Hook from SAXHOLDER-PRO is made of stainless steel, with high performance plastic coating. This is the safest and most effective combination. The cord is made of highly durable, scrub resistant Dyneema cord, breaking load is 250 kg (!)..."

What worries me with the Jazzlab saxholder is the flimsy looking cords that rests at near on 90 degrees out of the top of the eyelets. It just looks like it's under stress at those points, possibly causing a sudden unexpected break - is that why you get a spare cord with every purchase?
The spare cord is just a different length actually. It doesn't feel overly tense on the one I have. Just might appear more offputting due to the angle.

that is a feature to bring the sax at some distance from the body without any effort...

a bit like the houses in the NL have a hook outside on a bar to stay away from scraping the façade when pulling up large pieces of furniture
