  • Replacing the loop on speedbag.

    ​ I have an old 4213 everlast bag that I started out baggin with that has a destroyed loop.I need to replace the loop. While looking through old threads I see a lot about trimming and shortened loops but nothing about replacing loops.When I first had my bag repaired I took it to a shoe repairman and he stitched a flimsy piece of leather to it. I want to get the Chicago screws and repair it myself. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks- Mick

      I took a good loop off a bag I didn’t really care about and used it for a couple replacements.

        Back in my Memphis Days There was a leather craft shop where you could order custom made weight lifting belts, Saddles etc. I had them replace a few loops on some tufwear bags and one of my Everlast 4200's. That's been years ago.

            I would like to find a leather shop that could remove the welting in the seams of the vintage Everlast bags. I pulled one of my 4200's inside out to get a good look at the panels and seams. It doesn't look like a difficult job, if you know how to sew.
