Item 6269 - PLSS Abrasion Protection Straps Catalog 526 (Apr 2018)

Minimum Bid: $200.00
Sold Price: $1,842.40 (includes buyer's premium)


Appealing pair of Abrasion Protection Straps used during EVA crew training at the Kennedy Space Center. Both straps are constructed of durable off-white Beta cloth, measure 23 x 2, and feature metal clasps at either end, cinched in place with brown nylon; two clasps are stamped, “ISISV723617-1,” one clasp is stamped, “ISISV723617-2,” and three clasps bear the serial numbers: “150,” “157,” and “195.” Due to the extensive amount of hours spent training for lunar surface EVA, numerous repeated movements caused abrasion at the interface of where the suit met the Portable Life Support System (PLSS), which frequently resulted in unnecessary suit repairs between scheduled crew training exercises. To reduce the incidence of abrasion, the Abrasion Protection Straps were placed between the PLSS and suit. In fine condition, with slight wear from training use. From the collection of Dan Schaiewitz, who worked as Extravehicular Crew Training Engineer at KSC.
