Creative Uses For Dee Rings

By Jeffrey Jackson

Dee rings are those little rings shaped like the letter D, so that must be where they got their name. Once you start looking for them, you will find them all over the place. They are very versatile and can be creatively used on many different things.

When used on the ends of fabric, you can create some cute belts. When I made aprons, I used them on the neck strap so it could be easily adjusted to fit different people. I have also used them on ties on the back of vests so they can be tightened as needed.

These rings come in many different styles, sizes and strengths. They can be light weight plastic, or heavy duty metal rings. When picking out the right ring, consider the strength it will need for the job to be done.

Dee rings can be secured to other objects with a metal. leather or fabric strap. Heavy duty rings are used in the theater to hang scenery so it can be moved up and down. You can also find heavy duty rings on the ends of tow ropes and chains.

These rings are often found on bridles and saddles used on horses. Climbing and scuba gear also use these kinds of rings. They are even on some kinds of riffles.

My purse, luggage and backpack all have Dee rings on them. They are great for attaching straps or giving a way to clip something on. Dog leashes and collars also commonly have these rings to make them easier to use.

The end of any strap will become more versatile with the addition of a Dee ring. When you select one, just remember to pick one that has the right strength for the job it will be doing. Since plastic doesn’t rust, these rings work great on things that will be subjected to water or washing.

You can use these rings singly to give a way to hang or clip something. You can use them in pairs so the belt or strap can be wound between the two and pulled to tighten. Just look around and see how many places you can use them.

The owner of the dog ought to be well-informed about the types of collars available and how to use them properly as to not inflict injury to the dog. Jim Witt recommends visiting Country Brook Design to view the wide assortment of custom made Martingale Collars that are available in many sizes and colors.
