Polypropylene (PP) is what has been recommended by our expert advisors and our manufactures as the most suitable plastic to make bakslap. Some of the characteristics of this plastic are its flexibility, high resistance to stress and cracking, excellent impact strength and does not break down easily from reactions with water, acids, and detergents. It can be commonly found in many household goods.

When closed bakslap is 21cm. When it is completely extended it is 37.5cm.

We have designed bakslap so it is not a one-time use product, but a solution you can use again. The secret is you place your lotion of choice on the sponges, then using bakslap you can apply the lotion to your body. When finished applying, the cap can be closed to seal in the lotion next time.

Keep bakslap out of the direct sun where possible. You can remove the sponges at any time and then separately rinse your bakslap under water to wash off any elements that it may have come into contact with during your activities.

We currently offer two bakslap colours (as seen in our branding). These are Sky Blue, representing the ocean and Peach, a colour Tess was fond of.

We love the outdoors and adventure, so we have made sure this was considered when discussing with our manufactures the most suitable materials to use in bakslap. We have added UV Stabilizer and Colour Fastener to help mitigate the harmful effects of UV radiation on your bakslap as well as helping to protect its colour. We do recommend that you keep your bakslap out of the direct sun where possible.

The bakslap flap hats ware designed to offer you added sun protection when outdoors. It is a once size fits all hat that includes snap-back holes for further adjustment. It’s unique detectable flap (via 4 clips) means you can remove it if required.

After some use, the handle can become a little loose when it’s extended. This is part of the design so it can be fixed. Pop open the small clip on the handle, exposing a screw, then tighten by turning clockwise. Replace the clip and the handle will become tighter once again when extended.
