Although string can go through it, notice the holes are not round. They are flat. They were designed for strips of material or straps to go through. You can still buy these straps individually wrapped in most camping departments. Saying these are 4 shoe strings is kind of like saying all horses were designed for the carriage.

So it's functionally useless now, that's what you're saying its use is? Jesus Christ, slow day at the office?

So who didn't know this? And why wasn't this video 25 seconds long? Because that's about how long it should take to share the info and add a demonstration.

Rylan Storm (2 months ago)
Only problem is that most backpack manufacturers don't know what it's for anymore and it's stuck on with glue so that you can't thread anything through it.

Lol! These lash tabs have been on many styles & types of back packs ever since I can remember, clear back to the early 1970’s. It depends where on the pack they are sewn that determines their usefulness.

Never really gave a damn, but now I will guess because B I decided to capitalize from this. It’s to put your info inside just in case your bag is lost? 🤔

This is a meme now, you killed its functionality by rediscovering it functionality. I will rip anyone using this in its proper fashion. NEW YORK!
VZ_ 342 (5 months ago)
Sure, strap your smelly gym shoes to the outside of the pack...share, share, share?! For myself, the “pig snout” is only used while out in the woods hiking, to attach things so they don’t fall off and get lost. In the city it’s too likely that whatever’s tied will be stolen.
