Extenda-Barrier vs. The Competition

For Safety and Security, Extenda Barrier Posts are Well Worth the Cost. The Competitor's Lower Priced Posts, can cost much more in the long run.

"A Chain is Only as Strong as its Weakest Link"

Please See Diagrams Below

Many questions have been asked about the differences between Extenda-Barrier and other retractable strap, crowd control posts. This page will attempt the clarify the details in a side by side comparison. For those only interested in safety and functionality differences, please skip to the last paragraph.

First off, to be fair, all accomplish the same objective, but they do it in slightly different ways. Both posts are quite solid, and without mishandling, they will both last a very long time.

The Base: Extenda-Barrier is weighted with steel in a non-rusting aluminum shell, our competitor's base is cast iron. This is generally an unimportant factor unless the posts are transported frequently and subject to serious mishandling. Cast iron can crack and does rust, but in most cases, this will never happen.

The Strap: The Extenda-Barrier Strap is 100% all weather Nylon that can easily be cleaned as needed. Our competitor's strap is not. We have found no documentation as to what fabric is used. Since the durability of Nylon is a major plus, we find it odd that our competitor is NOT using it.

The Metal Finishes: This is strictly a matter of taste and budget. Extenda-Barrier's Satin Aluminum finish and our competitor's black finish are the most popular models, probably because they are their lowest priced models as well.

The Big Difference...

The Connections: This is where the similarities end and you will find a stark difference between Extenda-Barrier and our competitors. An incoming strap attaches to an Extenda-Barrier head by sliding the incoming strap's end (male connector) into the receiving head's metal housing. The connection is secure and unbreakable. While our competitor uses a separate molded plastic clip, that is no thicker than 1/8th of an inch on any side. The incoming strap (now a female receptor) then slides onto this "breakable" plastic clip to hold the strap in place. An unsteady visitor, a shopping cart or a typical bored child can easily break this plastic clip by applying enough pressure to the main (female receptor) connection. For those who may not see this as a major problem, you must remember that these are "Spring Loaded" retractable straps. If a breakage occurs, the competitor's strap is returning to its original head without consideration for anyone standing in its way. This "weak link" can create a potentially hazardous situation, not found on Extenda-Barrier posts.
