I have reproduced the jack restraint strap. Put that final factory touch on your collector ’67 Beetle!
The restraint strap apparently has never been available for purchase from dealers or other retailers; it came from the factory only. Having never found a name in Volkswagen literature, I gave it a name which I thought to be appropriate.

This piece came on all Volkswagen Beetles and Karmann Ghias from ’65 into ’72 on the stock Jacks with the two “toggles” for jacking up and down . The Strap restrained the toggles from vibrating while the Jack was stowed. For those with 1967 Beetles imported directly from Germany under USA dealership orders, see your Glove Box Edition Owner’s Manual, page 28, for two photos of the Restraint Strap in place. For those with ’67 Beetles outside the USA, look for depictions of jacking procedures in your Owner’s Manual.
My reproduced Straps are made of neoprene material and duplicate as closely as possible the original factory pieces. Their production is made possible by the use of modern computerized water-jet cutting technology. I can ship one restraint strap for $5.00 anywhere in the United States. Orders of more than 3 will receive a discount. For all foreign orders, please request shipping quotes.
