The connector 5 preferably comprises a casting formed with a substantially square body portion from which thereprojeet four D shaped ring parts 6 to receive the continuous strap 1 in an X shape manner. Formed on the inner surface of the middle portion of the connector 5, which may be a metal stamping if desired, is a spur 7 to engage that portion of the strap 1 which is on top of its other portion to hold said stop portion stationary while the lower portion of the strap is free to be adjusted through theco'nnector,
