SLAP BANDS

Oh snap… I mean Slap!

The ultimate retro accessory Slap Bands or Slap Bracelets are made of layered, felxible stainless steel bistable spring bands within a designer fabric or plastic covered.

The bracelet can be straightened out, creating tension within the springy metal bands. The straightened bracelet is then slapped against your forearm causing the bands to spring back into a curve that wraps around the wrist securing the bracelet on the wearer.

Invented by Wisconsin teacher Stuart Anders and sold under the brand name “Slap Wrap” the bracelet became a popular fad among children and tweens in the early 90s.

Several schools banned the bracelet following reports of injuries stemming from improper use.
