After reading my STRAP LOCKS article, my brother--who knows EVERYTHING-- asked, "So then, you know what the PAWL is."

Of course I did NOT know that word.  He responded, with a pun, "I'm APPAWLED that you don't know that word!"

According to the Merriam Websster Online Dictionary, the pawl is:  "a pivoted curved bar or lever whose free end engages with the teeth of a cogwheel or ratchet so that the wheel or ratchet can only turn one way."

I was wondering why the strap locks could not be recycled.  See this method from YouTube:
