Tool kit strap

Post by wezx »



Does anyone know if the rubber tool kit strap for the 1500 was changed for the 1800? In other words, can I use a strap from the 1800 in my 1500?

I am not sure it will fit or not, but it seems that the one on the GL1800 is about 2 inch (5 cm) shorter (18cm-23cm)

I never see 1500 straps for sale on eBay...they’re always 1800 ones...

And of course, 5 minutes after I typed this 2 showed up on eBay! LOL

One of them says it’s a “battery strap”? My battery box has a metal bar retainer not a strap? Have they misidentified this strap as a battery strap? Or do some 1500’s use a strap for the battery? If so I wonder if the battery strap and tool kit strap are the same size?

It must be a misidentified tool strap. There are no battery straps on the GL1500.
